CERN Selects Infortrend Storage Arrays to Organise the Historic Data from the Large Hadron Collider

slcee-CERN imageIn designing and commissioning the storage infrastructure for the LHC the IT Department at CERN aimed to ensure the research team had the best possible systems to work with, whilst working within a strict budget and to tight deadlines. After a detailed evaluation, for the metadata storage, CERN selected Infortrend EonStor RAID subsystems which provided an optimal balance between cost, reliability and technical features.
