Since October 2015, we have been running a local GitLab installation that is used by professors, researchers, and students from numerous universities and academic institutions in Munich and the region of Upper Bavaria. Getting started with GitLab is very easy for our users because they can simply log in using their preexisting academic user accounts. Researchers using our flagship supercomputer SuperMUC-NG also manage their software code on the LRZ GitLab instance.
We currently have about 15,000 active users who have 40,000 projects that use around 10 TB of data, including repositories, containers and Git LFS files. In addition to research and individual student projects, GitLab is increasingly being used for teaching as well. We have recently migrated to the GitLab Ultimate edition under the Education license in order to enable the complete set of features to our users.
I am curious as to whether some of our users will present their projects on this forum as well.
