Computer infrastructure behind the Large Hadron Collider

Few days back when the Hadron Collider was built I made a Post on Large Hadron Collider Here

and now we have got some more interesting things to share ! sometimes I think its not what they intend on telling us .. hmmm What can LHC be used (spookey) 


CERN’s Large Hadron Collider (LHC) will be producing roughly 15 petabytes of data each year (15,000,000,000,000,000 bytes). In other words, the LHC is not only huge in physical size (filling a 17-mile long underground path), but it will produce enormous amounts of data for researchers to bite into.

CERN seems to be well-equipped to handle the data from the gigantic particle accelerator when you take a look at their data center.

It’s pretty impressive stuff. You can explore a large collection of photos available over at CERN’s website.
