Ix is the 9th planet of the Alkaurops star system (It was named Ix after the Roman numeral 9).  In the prequels, it is ruled by House Vernius.  They were relatively unaffected by the Butlerian Jihad, and so they became the technological centre of the universe.  The planet itself looks like an uninhabited world, because the cities are located far underground.

It's Richese, not Rachel.  ;)

ExAtreides:  Yes, but they fared better than the oter worlds did.

In the DE, the Jihad was started by Jehanne Butler, a Koman (Komos = pre-jihad name of Ix), after her unborn daughter was aborted by the hospital administrator - a Thinking Machine.  Her daughter was supposedly to be the mother of an earlier Kwisatz Haderach, but I don't know how that can be, since it says in Dune that the BG were formed after the Jihad.
