TRL 9: Actual system proven in operational environment.
WLCG, the international collaboration that led to the discovery of the Higgs Boson in 2012, is a global initiative with more than 170 computing centres across 42 countries. Its primary goal is to provide computing resources to store, distribute, and analyse data generated by the high-energy physics experiments conducted by the Large Hadron
Collider (LHC) at CERN. The detectors installed in the LHC generate a massive amount of data that must be processed, distributed and analysed by thousands of scientists across hundreds of scientific institutions worldwide. EGI Federation’s services are crucial in enabling such an exascale, distributed computing infrastructure like WLCG.
CERN utilises the FTS service, which underlies EGI Data Transfer, to distribute the LHC Data to the WLCG infrastructure. This technology facilitates data transfer of over 80 Petabytes monthly, allowing to run on the WLCG infrastructure around 700 million computing jobs annually, consuming approximately 5 billion CPU hours.
