How does Enterprise Linux work?
Enterprise Linux operating systems are offered with support options in the form of subscriptions at various severity levels. Subscriptions include support, updates and patches for the appropriate term. In addition, the software is certified by numerous hardware and application manufacturers.
The free Linux variations, like CentOS or Scientific Linux are not certified or only certified by a few manufacturers and the support is usually only provided by the community, i.e. the developer community.
How do we support you?
- When selecting a suitable Linux distribution for your company

What are the advantages of Enterprise Linux with ATIX?
Independence: We are a manufacturer-independent service provider and will find the best Enterprise Linux solution for you.
Flexibility: Enterprise Linux can be easily adapted to your individual needs. Our experts for configuration management will help you with this.
Interoperability: Enterprise Linux solutions consistently rely on open standards, so that the interaction between different products causes significantly fewer problems than is usually the case with products with proprietary interfaces.
Quality: Enterprise Linux products have an excellent quality standard that is in no way inferior to proprietary solutions. Due to the developments of the worldwide Open Source community, proprietary solutions are often even surpassed.

What is Cloud Computing?
Cloud computing dynamically adapts abstracted IT infrastructures (such as computing capacity and data storage), ready-made program packages, and programming environments to meet demand and make them available in the cloud.
Where is cloud computing used?
Cloud computing is largely used to outsource the operation and maintenance of its own data center. Appropriate providers already offer their customers prefabricated and standardized environments where they can operate their desired services and applications. There are different models: From virtual machines in the cloud to platforms for specific services (E.g. container platforms) to finished applications that are adapted and tailored to their business.
How can we help you?
- When planning a cloud solution that suits you
- Selecting and implementing the right tools for you
- Adapting the chosen solution to your special needs
What are the benefits of cloud computing?
- Cost savings: Cloud computing enables cost advantages over conventional systems. This is the case if, for example, payment depends on the duration of use of the service and the service is only used occasionally. Local resources (software and hardware) can be saved.
- Scalability and flexibility: Cloud computing adapts perfectly to your current needs. If needed, it’s easy to scale.
- Safety: Cloud computing providers invest heavily in ensuring data security. Centralizing the data makes this easier.
Which cloud services are available to choose from?
- Software as a Service (SaaS): Software is operated by a service provider and made available via the internet. The user can access and use the software using a web browser.
- Platform as a Service (PaaS): A “pay as you grow” model for IT resources available over the internet, such as Google App Engine, Microsoft SQL Server, Data Service, JBoss Application
- Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS): This refers to the use of industry standard computers that are hared over the internet, such as Amazon EC2, RHEV, HyperV
- Application Components as a Service: These are applications that service providers operate and are made available to users via the internet, such as Salesforce, .com’s, AppExchange, Google
Why is a coherent IT infrastructure important?
An optimal infrastructure is the basis for an effective and efficient IT in every company. Today, the way in which we create, use and store information is evolving at a record-breaking rate and reaching unprecedented proportions. Drastic effects on server hardware, networks and storage systems are the result.
What are the components of an IT infrastructure?
Hardware: The most important factors are memory, number of CPUs and their slots (sockets), a redundant power supply and the above-average quality of the individual components to ensure continuous operation.
Network: For a stable and reliable data center, the network, its connection and the bandwidth are of elementary importance.
Storage: Increasing data volumes and storage space bottlenecks make efficient use of physical storage necessary in data centers. This applies to the compression of corresponding data and requires a more intelligent use of existing resources.
Central storage systems: In addition to the much simpler administration and monitoring, the high availability of the data through redundant write operations on different hard disks (which nevertheless result in a contiguous volume) plays an important role.
What do you need to know about IT infrastructure?
Hardware: The trend is increasingly towards pr-engineered systems (standardized hardware and software) and out-of-the-box solutions. The simplified compatibility makes it possible, for example, to roll out new updates and releases more easily and quickly. This also facilitates commissioning, as the systems are pr-configured and tested before delivery (flexible configuration is still possible). Pre-engineered systems reduce the costs for hardware and the commissioning requires only a small amount of work.
Network: While large companies often have their own connections laid between different data centers, smaller companies are dependent on their existing infrastructure.
Storage: Due to the large amount of unstructured data (images, videos, e-mails, texts), companies need to find an efficient way to manage this data. This is particularly important for storage systems in data centers with high data processing rates. The trend here is away from server-based storage. Instead, there is a growing trend towards a centralized storage system.
ATIX IT solutions
Our Linux and Open Source solutions support you in setting up, standardizing and automating your data center infrastructure.
The optimization of an IT infrastructure leads to a more efficient and effective interaction of hardware, software and the network of an entity.
Automation consists of standardization and reproducible deployment, configuration, lifecycle and patch management processes for servers and software releases.
