What's new @CERN? n°3 GRID Computing

of millions of collisions per second -- Detectors collecting data to analyse 24/7 : the LHC and its experiements generate millions of gigabytes of data. The Computing Grid, a huge, worldwide network of computers was invented to manage, process and store these phenomenal volumes of data. How does it work ? Who uses it ? What is its performance since the LHC started up nearly two years ago? What are its other applications outside particle physics ? We're going to review all this with Oliver Keeble, Computing engineer at CERN who works on the computing Grid. See you straight after this..
