Reporting live from CERN in Switzerland day 2 part 1

Today I’ll be viewing first hand how the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) – a particle accelerator at CERN – will be used in an experiment that will generate Petabytes (1000 terabytes) of information.

Dealing with petabytes of information today is not common practice, but will be ten years down the line, according to experts.

Managing unstructured data over the network will play a big part of this and if there’s one place to start, it’s at CERN.

I’m just hoping none of my particles get accelerated.
