Seagate has entered into a three-year partnership with CERN openlab to collaborate and develop the Kinetic Storage Platform for the Large Hadron Collider.
The partnership aims to help CERN manage and store the 100 petabytes of data the Large Hadron Collider has generated to date, as well as the additional 2-3 petabytes of information it produces on a monthly basis in its quest to further humanity's understanding of the universe.
