We use Unix sytems (HP and IBM) for all our major database systems, TSM
etc. So, my opinion is obviously in favor or the AIX system.
But . . . .
If they have little to no Unix experience then I'd be worried about
the learning curve to managing a Unix system, and, the long
term problems of maintaining that knowledge. I think your
report should address these issues. It's not "hard", but it will
requirement a committment from management to plan and allow for this.
