Web hosting for institutions

If you plan to run a web application with a lot of users it might be possible to outsource operation of a LAMP-based infrastructure to LRZ. We are currently operating infrastructures for a Typo3 web server farm with TUM corporate design, and also the infrastructure for all TUM and LMU Moodle installations. Find out more about these projects here. Please contact us if you might be interested in this service.


Maybe you can find an answer (in German) in our web hosting FAQ. Otherwise, please contact us via service desk.
