Can i install ELK stack on AIX server? i have checked the compatibility matrix of Elasticsearch but i couldn't locate AIX there.

Not at this time. The primary reason is that IBM's JDK is not supported. There is an effort being led by IBM devs to ensure that their JDK will support Lucene and Elasticsearch, but it is not even in a prerelease stage yet.

As far as Logstash is concerned, IBM's JDK isn't supported either. JRuby would need to work with whatever JDK and hardware architecture and libraries.

And that leaves Kibana and Beats. Beats would require the Go language and associated libraries to run natively, and last I heard, there was no support for Go in AIX yet. Kibana would need JavaScript support, and I'm unaware of the support level for JavaScript in AIX.
