Enid Burns for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Cloud computing is attempting to boldly go farther than computing systems have gone before, on a mission to discover the origins of the universe. CERN openlab will use Raskspace to deliver a hybrid cloud solution under a year-long agreement. The CERN openlab project, which provides a framework to test and validate information technologies, will work together with Rackspace to provide a handful of joint initiatives that focus on creating...

Cutting the cost down, as well as developing for high-end design saves and returns cash into properties. New York (PRWEB) July 30, 2012 After years of continuous prototyping, the company released the 'Gorgeous is the New Green' luxury system. Tested in green residential, service and hospitality developments showed that the system meets high-end service standards, with 15% conversion rate to return on the initial investment. The company designs from a complex system of factors which are...

"Israel is joining an exclusive club, which provides unusual visibility, exposure, prestige and international status," Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said in announcing the cabinet decision that it had approved the country's membership in the European Center for Nuclear Research (CERN), becoming the research group's first non-European delegation, AFP is reporting. Netanyahu tells AFP that membership in the organization, reflected the "capabilities of Israeli scientists and constitutes...

Scientists at the CERN research center said on Wednesday that they would be moving ahead cautiously this year to avoid any possible breakdown in their Large Hadron Collider (LHC). They said that if all goes well they would step up the energy of particle collisions that most feel is vital to bring them near to finding the most mythical Higgs boson and evidence for the existence of dark matter. "We are pushing the limits," physicist Marco Zanetti told a seminar for CERN staff attended by...

The Large Hadron Collider's machine systems are now recovering from a recent general power cut. The organization that runs the LHC, CERN, said it had taken until Monday morning for the machine to fully recover. According to a spokesperson, the electrical cut on Friday may have been caused by storms. The collider is in a technical stop that is allowing technicians access to its 16-mile long tunnel. A spokesperson said a technical stop had already been scheduled for this week. James...

The LArge Hadron Collider, which was shut down after its inauguration in September 2008 amid technical faults, restarted on Friday, a spokesman for the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) said. The CERN spokesman said they hope to have beams circulating by early Saturday in the huge tunnels beneath the French-Swiss border. "The first tests of injecting sub-atomic particles began around 1600 (1500 GMT)," CERN's James Gillies told AFP. He said the injections lasted a fraction of...

According to the European Organization for Nuclear Research, the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) is expected to be restarted by this weekend after over a year of repairs. Spokesman James Gillies says scientists have refrained from setting an exact date for sending beams of protons around the 17-mile circular tunnel housing the world's largest atom smasher. Gillies says the organization known as CERN is taking its time with the sophisticated equipment. The LHC was launched last year before...

When it is fully up and running, the four massive detectors on the new Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at the CERN particle-physics lab near Geneva are expected to produce up to 15 million gigabytes, aka 15 petabytes, of data every year. Andreas Hirstius, manager of CERN Openlab and the CERN School of Computing, explains in November's Physics World how computer scientists have risen to the challenge of dealing with this unprecedented volume of data. When CERN staff first considered how they might...

CERN, the world's largest particle physics lab that created the Worldwide Web, exhibited its newest development on Friday: a computer network allowing some 7,000 scientists in 33 countries to connect and share data and processing power. Through the new network, the European Organization for Nuclear Research will allow scientists to analyze data from its particle-smashing test that began last month. The experiment began on September 10 and was shut down nine days later because of a helium...
