Searching for the Higgs particle with IT solutions from transtec
CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research, is one of the world’s largest and most respected centres for scientific research. The Laboratory sits astride the Franco–Swiss border near Geneva and was one of Europe’s first joint ventures when founded in 1954. It now has 20 Member States.
“Over the last 7 years, transtec has supplied us with more than 1’500 servers and 300 disk arrays. Such contracts are awarded through competitive Requests For Proposals, with bidders from CERN’s 20 Member States. Currently, we have more than 900 of those units in production, which places transtec among our data centre top five suppliers. The onsite warranty maintenance service provided by their local office fully meets our Service Level Agreement targets. We also appreciate having direct access to a team of engineering experts at the transtec headquarter in Germany.”
