CERN awards MEGWARE another contract in a multiple-digit million euro range
CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research, is one of the world’s largest and most respected centres for scientific research into the underlying physical principles of our world. Researchers at CERN probe the fundamental structure of the universe, investigating the basic constituents of matter – the fundamental particles. The particles are made to collide at close to the speed of light. This involves a staggering technical effort to manufacturer and operate the systems, and places extreme requirements in the data analysis tasks that the computers are asked to perform.
Here, MEGWARE was awarded the contract to boost the computing capacity in the IT data centres, and is scheduled to deliver over 3000 new server systems based on Intel-Haswell technology by the end of March 2015.
