On the Grid-Cloud Border at CERN

Oct 12, 2010 |

At the core of the CERN HPC information technology infrastructure is the use of their own internal HPC grid that manages the vast data volumes. Due to the amount of data and complexity of this infrastructure, CERN has created a separate information technology team to handle all aspects of their HPC data volume. According to one of the leaders of this team, CERN’s Sverre Jarp, the facility is “taking steps to move HPC grid infrastructure into the cloud” to better manage this data.
