THE GLOBAL REACH of CERN is demonstrated by Bob Jones, head of the open labs project at CERN, who shows off the real-time data transfers taking place from the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) to some 200 subsidary datacentres storing the data created by the world's largest quantum physics lab.
This setup is called the Grid and is required by CERN to help it collect and store the vast amount of data being created from collisions between particles in the LHC. µ
Uses 20 percent less power than traditional systems
