Every day researchers add another sea of data to an ocean of knowledge on the world around us — billions on top of billions of measurements, images and observations of the tiniest subatomic particles up to the movement of planets and stars.
The world’s largest computing grid has passed its most comprehensive tests to date in anticipation of the restart of the world’s most powerful particle accelerator, the Large Hadron Collider.
The world’s largest computing grid is ready to tackle mankind’s biggest data challenge from the earth’s most powerful accelerator.
The six experiments at the Large Hadron Collider will produce 15 million gigabytes of data every year, enough information to create a 13-mile-high stack of CDs.
NSF and DOE Office of Science join forces to support community cyberinfrastructure with $30 million in awards to empower scientific collaboration and computation.
A global collaboration of physicists and computer scientists announced today the successful completion of a test of the first truly worldwide grid computing infrastructure.
Preparing for an onslaught of data to be processed and distributed in the upcoming years, scientists at the Department of Energy’s Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory and at the California Institute of Technology successfully tested a new ultrafast data transfer connection developed by the Office of Science of the Department of Energy.
Hundreds of scientists from the DZero collaboration at the Department of Energy’s Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory are using the technology of the future to process particle physics data today.
Today, in a milestone for scientific computing, researchers at the Department of Energy’s Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory announced that the laboratory had sustained a continuous data flow averaging 50 megabytes per second (MB/s) for 25 days from CERN in Geneva, Switzerland to the tape storage facility at Fermilab.
Officials at the Department of Energy’s Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory today (Thursday) announced a potential five-hundredfold increase in the laboratory’s computer network connections to U.S. and international science communities.
