Hey Priyansh,

Ab Initio software has the core engine which is called Co-Operating system (Co-Ops). This is the server part of the Ab Initio products. This is the main core engine to perform all activities for most of the products. This Co-op runs in Unix, Windows and Mainframe OS also. Unix is the native OS for Co-Ops. In Unix, it is installed directly and it works closely with Unix commands and resources to perform all the activities. In Windows and Mainframe OS, it looks Unix layer to work with native OS. So, first the Unix layer to be installed on top of the Windows and Mainframe OS. For Windows. the cygwin is acting as Unix layer and it helps to run the Co-Ops in windows machine. Co-Ops uses all the windows resource via cygwin to perform all the task. For Mainframe, the z/OS is acting as Unix layer and it help to runs the Co-Ops.

All the native clients and web based native clients are running in Windows OS only. Developer workstation (which GDE - Graphical Development Environment) is compatible with Windows Operating system with Microsoft .NET Framework. The other core technical repository servers, web application Servers, database Servers compatible with all 3 operating system servers. 

I hope I was able to give you some clarity.
