Helix Nebula on TechWorld
15 June 2012, Hurry up,CERN says EU data protection laws are hindering cloud adoption, TechWorld
CERN is keen to explore how the cloud can help it deal with its big data problem, hence its involvement in “Helix Nebula – the Science Cloud,” launched earlier this year.
Helix Nebula will give CERN access to more computing power to process data from its Atlas experiment, which is designed to observe phenomena that involve massive particles that might shed light on new theories of particle physics.
HELIX NEBULA PARTNERSHIP
Helix Nebula is a new, pioneering partnership between leading IT providers and four of Europe’s biggest research centres, CERN, EMBL, ESA and PIC, charting a course towards sustainable cloud services for the research communities - the Science Cloud.
