Technology leader KERN-LIEBERS monitors its systems worldwide with Checkmk
Who is KERN-LIEBERS?
Monitoring from the Black Forest to the whole world
The history of KERN-LIEBERS dates back to 1888, when company founder Hugo Kern began to produce tension springs. To this day, the family-owned company has remained true to metal processing, though KERN-LIEBERS has grown significantly since that beginning. Today, with over 7,000 employees and more than 40 subsidiaries worldwide, the company is a technology leader for highly complex metal parts and assemblies, and is also active in many other industries.
One basis for this successful expansion is the company’s passion for technology and continuous modernization. Naturally, IT plays an important role in this, and KERN-LIEBERS’ IT environment is correspondingly extensive. In 2013, the IT team decided on an important change with regard to the IT infrastructure: The Checkmk Enterprise Edition replaced the Nagios monitoring solution.
Scalable monitoring with minimal effort
Since switching to Checkmk, the IT team has significantly less work with IT monitoring. The notifications are precise and inform the responsible people immediately, so that they are able to take the appropriate action. Checkmk is also highly scalable and can easily monitor even numerous systems remotely.
