Representatives of Intel`s recently signed an agreement on the extension until 2011 of cooperation with the European Center for Nuclear Research (CERN) in the project openlab. On the IT-giant center will provide hardware and experimental samples, advice on energy efficient design of the data center, temperature specifications and processing of data. Remember that Intel and CERN collaborated to work on scientific projects since the official opening of the laboratory CERN openlab in January 2003 The cooperation was extended for three years to support c Center for platforms (PCC), including research laboratories and providing optimization services and transport to work together on experiments CERN c large Hadron Collider. The project openlab task Center for platforms will be the facilitation of the spread of the incoming data in a distributed network of large hadron collider and partners Center PCC. center CERN will participate in pilot tests of the new Intel processor architecture and computing clusters. Work will focus on testing prior versions of systems, assessing the possibility of their use in distributed networks, and to conduct other tests, fitness systems for use in the real world.
