Collaborative Innovation Leading to Gen-Next Computing
FREMONT, CA: Cisco, networking solution providers, enters into a strategic collaboration with CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research. This collaboration gives Cisco entree into the CERN openlab, CERN’s platform for science and industry partnerships.
The collaboration is made on CERN’s prediction of a significant increase in data processing rates over the next decade produced as a result of the experiments on Large Hadron Collider (LHC), a research program. This involves collecting and analyzing data from millions of sensors. The sensors can create data at a rate of up to a petabyte per second. This will require huge storage and computing facilities. Therefore, innovations are required in many IT related domains.
As part of the initiative, CERN and Cisco are assigning a team of experts to develop cutting edge, extremely secure computing infrastructure technologies, capable of dealing large and ever-growing amounts of data. The goal here is to develop ideas and new approaches for next-generation computing systems.
Alberto Di Meglio, Head of CERN openlab, CERN says, “The success of the LHC depends critically on advances in information processing technologies and components. Therefore, we are partnering with industry leading companies and are pleased to welcome Cisco into CERN openlab.”
