This year again Automation has participated to the Hercules Trophy challenge on June 21st! We already subscribed for next year’s edition!
Design and Operation of a 3 MW Datacenter based on Prefabricated Modules – CERN’s Reply to the Computing and Storage Challenges related to the Large Hadron Collider’s (LHC) Upgrade Program.
2 experiments (Alice and LHCb) will install 10 SAFE Prefabricated Datacenter Modules to extend their datacenters. The modules are located on top of the experiments (near source) allowing for huge savings on the transfer of data.
On March 12, 2019 Uptime Institute provided the SAFE MUP AiO 200 -KW DX DRUPS design with the TIER III Ready designation. After rigorous review it has satisfactorily proven ready to support Concurrent Maintainability and their readiness to support a TIER III build objective for 200 kilowatts (kW) of IT load.
The new data center for CERN’s Large Hadron Collider experiment becomes fully operational (expected toward the end of the year). The current data center sits underground, 300 feet below surface. The new data center is much larger: 32,500-square foot, 3MW and it will sit on the surface and requires a fiber optic connection.
