01/07/2013 CERN, Rackspace Collaborate on Hybrid Cloud

CERN has entered an agreement with cloud provider Rackspace to develop a hybrid cloud based on OpenStack. The agreement falls under the auspices of CERN's openlab, a joint public/private partnership that gives CERN a chance to get its hands on new technology, while vendors get feedback on products used in the IT infrastructure that supports CERN's Large Hadron Collider (LHC). Other openlab partners include HP, Huawei and Intel.

Through a brand-new yearlong agreement, the Rackspace Private Cloud platform will now be deployed onto servers that CERN uses for production physics experiments. "The easier CERN can tap into multiple cloud resource pools without significant retooling, the more data they can process and the faster they can prove theories," said Chris Jackson, Rackspace manager for big cloud solutions. - See more at:
