As a consequence of the increased luminosity and interaction rate, a significantly larger amount of data will have to be processed and selected. More powerful electronics, data processing and computing systems have therefore been designed to sustain high throughput and performance. The ALICE collaboration is currently installing a new data centre above ground to improve computing capacity. When the new LHC run starts in 2021, the significantly improved detector will offer a factor of 100 gain in statistics.

Will any of it be sent out via BOINC?

ALICE, unlike the other three big LHC experiments, has never used BOINC and I’m almost certain they won’t change their mind about that.

OK, thanks. Please keep us posted when new work comes in to support the other upgrades. They look very worthwhile.
