CERN and the Wigner Research Centre for Physics inaugurated the CERN Tier-0 data-centre extension in Budapest on 13 June, marking the completion of the facility.
On the same day that the LHC’s first three-year physics run ended, CERN announced that its data centre had recorded more than 100 petabytes (PB) – 100 million gigabytes – of physics data.
Mid-February marked the end of the first three-year run of the LHC. While the machine exceeded all expectations, delivering significantly more data to the experiments than initially foreseen, h...
Like all of the LHC experiments, LHCb relies on a tremendous amount of CPU power to select interesting events out of the many millions that the LHC produces every second.
Following a competitive call for tender, CERN has signed a contract with the Wigner Research Centre for Physics in Budapest for an extension to CERN’s data centre.
