CERN. What is CERN? Particle physics laboratory Europe old and new (plus collaborations with USA, Canada, Japan, India, Pakistan, Russia, China… ) Planning for ~5 PB per year, 2-5 GB/s in 2007: data storage problem!. Ski slopes. LHC ring. Geneva Airport. CERN: current tape situation.
Use at peak throughput assumed, realistically need 3 x this, > 3 x?
Powderhorns can cope re drive numbers (40/silo)…. But speed?
2010- 100K SAIT (or 78K 3592b?) is 18(14?) Powderhorns, so => new building?
2010- 100K SAIT is fine with 8500 in existing zones, but not supported
A ‘3592b’ does not exist today. SAIT exists, 500GB, ~30 MB/s..
