Researchers out of Harvard, MIT and CERN got together to create a super-secure email program for privacy-focused users.
The cloud stack may lack an OpenStack-style marketing push, but its first global conference in Berlin this week has been full of stories of successful, interesting deployments by the likes of Akamai, Fermilab and the Santander Group.
Structure:Europe was about many things — cloud computing, privacy, how to build a global business — but it might have been most about scale. The goal of any tech company is to handle untold millions of users and their data, and many speakers are doing just that.
CERN is building out a new data center and re-writing its toolchain to keep up with the big data demands of its research into the nature of matter and anti-matter.
CERN openlab is working with Rackspace to build and deploy a massive hybrid cloud that could prove OpenStack’s worth in huge research applications.
CERN has been testing options for a massive private cloud to serve 11,000 physicists around the world. It’s dropped OpenNebula in favor of OpenStack, but was that a valid or hype-driven decision?
It’s hard to precisely quantify adoption of open-source software, but it looks like OpenStack is gaining serious traction in Europe, with adopters ranging from CERN and Deutsche Telekom to France’s burgeoning national clouds.
The IaaS provider, which is a supplier to Europe’s performance-hungry Helix Nebula science cloud, has abandoned magnetic disks for solid-state storage, and all without raising its prices.
The physics researchers at CERN are now much more confident that they have found the elusive particle, although questions remain that will require sifting through more data.
Huawei has become an official partner of CERN openlab, with the physics research facility giving the thumbs-up to the Chinese firm’s exascale-targeting, mass object-based storage infrastructure.
