The world’s largest computing grid is ready to tackle mankind’s biggest data challenge from the earth’s most powerful accelerator. Today, three weeks after the first particle beams were injected into the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), the Worldwide LHC Computing Grid combines the power of more than 140 computer centers from 33 countries to analyze and manage more than 15 million gigabytes of LHC data every year.
Computing grids such as Enabling Grids for E-Science (EGEE) in Europe and Open Science Grid (OSG) in the U.S. not only contribute their power to the Worldwide LHC Computing Grid, but also contribute to other scientific projects, covering biology, chemistry, medicine, climate science and more.
