CERN will use, 1,000 simultaneous virtual machines and associated cluster storage of more than 500 Terabyte, for a three months period, to validate if physics data processing can be flexibly out-tasked to a commercial cloud provider. Services will be provided by T-Systems, corporate customers unit of Deutsche Telekom.
