Message 13321 - Posted: 11 Apr 2006, 12:26:16 UTC - in response to Message 13313.  

Thank you very much Ananas for the "hot tip"! The article titled on the cover of the magazine "Global Grid" is very comprehensive and up to date which indicates that the author was obviously at CERN, had a look around and talked to some of the people there - especially the head of the IT department. The author refers to us the crunchers as a powerful armada and goes on to say that our computer capacity often exceeds that of CERN's own computer center. And what is the computer center using - they are phasing out their Sun workstations? They are using standard PCs with Intels Xeon-processors. 3000 of them which they are increasing to 5000. How's that for a computer farm?
These all connected together in a Linux cluster. Anyone have any idea if they are using a standard Linux distribution or have they cooked up their own? Ben?

Most of the rest of the article is about the LCG, the grid which is being set up to distribute the data from the experiments (i.e. the detectors) to the people all over the world who will analyze it looking for among other things the Higgs-Boson.

Also listed in the article is a list of links for anyone interested in following up any of the topics mentioned.

Can only hope the article gets translated into English and printed in some English magazines.

Maybe an online translator, I would love to see the article.
