Reference Story: LMU Klinikum

ATIX AG and LMU Klinikum

We have already had very positive experiences with ATIX consulting on other projects, such as Suse Manager or SaltStack. The support of the employees of ATIX AG in setting up the container technology with Kubernetes led the LMU Klinikum quickly and competently from PoC to productive operation.

Container application operation

Container technology was made mainstream by Docker and has since revolutionized IT. Container technology enables applications to be deployed resource-efficiently and quickly, reducing maintenance tasks and attack surfaces, and making applications portable. Container technology increases the speed, stability and availability of IT services and thus the performance and business success of companies.

LMU Klinikum was looking for an IT partner to build up its expertise in container technology. The goal was to run container applications while having a simple and clear guide for operation. It was also important to configure security-related aspects correctly.

The solution

Building container platforms based on Kubernetes

The industry standard in container platforms is Kubernetes, which is also known as a virtual data center for container applications. Kubernetes allows container applications to be deployed in a highly available manner, scaling them and updating them without downtime. In doing so, Kubernetes manages computing resources, virtual networks, persisting data and ensuring security policies.

ATIX AG was already IT partner of LMU Klinikum for different topics (e.g. Suse Manager, NFS Storage, Saltstack). For the know-how development, the conceptual design and the realization of the Kubernetes project, a renewed cooperation has offered itself. The consultants of ATIX AG were able to accompany the LMU Klinikum within the scope of project support during the setup of a proof of concept and the go-live into the productive operation of Kubernetes. In the context of operational support, the consultants of ATIX AG always stood by the side of the LMU Klinikum to help with challenges.
