On September the 10th, the European Organization for Nuclear Research
(CERN) began experiments with its Large Hadron Collider (LHC), the
world's most powerful particle accelerator. Physicists will use the
LHC to recreate the conditions just after the Big Bang, by colliding
two beams of subatomic particles head-on, at very high energy. Teams
of physicists from around the world will then analyze the particles
created in the collision to gain a better understanding of some of
the fundamental laws of nature.
The French Physics organization, IN2P3/CNRS, which is responsible for
collecting data from the experiments on the new Large Hadron Collider
(LHC) at CERN, has chosen to use Sun servers, Solaris and Sun
StorageTek tape libraries to house the data that they collect.
