Helix Nebula Cloud Targets European Scientific Research - Article by Robert Gelber, HPC Wire, July 10th 2012


The scientific community is abuzz over the recent discovery of a Higgs-like particle based on experiments performed on the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN. What is less well known is that the LHC researchers and other European scientists will soon have access to a new a cloud platform specifically designed for their computational needs. The project, known as the Helix Nebula was introduced in March to provide researchers with cloud-based computing and analytics resources.
