Geneva, 9 May 2012. The fourth phase of CERN openlab was officially launched during a meeting of its board of sponsors taking place at CERN1 on 8 and 9 May. CERN openlab is a unique public-private partnership between CERN and leading information technology companies HP, Intel, Oracle, Siemens, with contribution from Huawei for this new phase. Its mission is to accelerate the development of cutting-edge solutions to be used by the worldwide community working on LHC data.

The Large Hadron Collider (LHC), the world's largest particle accelerator, generates hundreds of millions of particle collisions each second. To record, store and analyse these vast amounts of collisions present a massive data challenge: the LHC produces roughly 20 million Gigabytes of data each year.

CERN openlab was created more than 10 years ago, to develop innovative, advanced IT systems required to cope with the unprecedented computing challenges of the LHC. It brings together the efforts of science and industry, working at the cutting-edge of research to ever expand technological boundaries. This collaborative framework also offers a neutral ground for companies to collaborate on common projects and develop synergies.

The third phase of CERN openlab was officially closed during the meeting of partners. The assembly reviewed key achievements of the projects carried out, and agreed on their positive impact on the development of the Grid and computing services, which underpin the LHC. The work was organized into four competence centres: Automation and Controls with Siemens, Database with Oracle, Networking with HP, and Platform with Intel.

During the meeting, Rolf Heuer, CERN Director General, stated that "The synergy that CERN openlab creates with leading IT companies is highly fruitful and I therefore thank all CERN openlab partners and contributors for their continued support. During the next three years, CERN is preparing the LHC for operating at higher energy and luminosity. This fourth phase will be instrumental in addressing the increased computing challenges in an innovative way."

The fourth phase will address new topics crucial to the CERN scientific programme, such as cloud computing, business analytics, the next generation of hardware, and security for the myriads of network devices. The industry investment over the three years of the fourth phase represents more than eight million Swiss Francs...[]
