Servers for SESAME

13 October 2017

On 12 September, 56 servers left CERN bound for the SESAME light-source facility in Jordan. “These servers are a very valuable addition to the SESAME data centre,” said Salman Matalgah, head of IT at SESAME. “They will help ensure that we’re able to provide first-class computing support to our users.” Speaking for CERN, Charlotte Warakaulle, director for international relations, said: “After many other successful donations, it’s great that we can extend the list of beneficiaries to include SESAME: a truly inspiring project showcasing and building on scientific capacity in the Middle East and neighbouring regions.” Pictured are CERN’s head of IT Frédéric Hemmer (left), Charlotte Warakaulle and president of SESAME Council Rolf Heuer, with the servers packed and ready to go.
