Scientific research has been one of the biggest use cases for OpenStack since its inception. In this session, we’ll catch up with one of the pioneers, Tim Bell from CERN who is running more than 190K OpenStack cores. His team is responsible for capturing, analyzing and storing data from the Large Hadron Collider. The CERN team was the first OpenStack Superuser winner and continues to be strong contributors to the community. We’ll then shift gears to new research projects being built on OpenStack, including progressive translational medicine initiative at Cambridge University, correlating gene sequencing insights with clinical patient data to deliver real-time recommendations to doctors. We’ll also hear about the Sqaure Kilometer Array, a software defined telescope which will allow us to see deeper into space than ever before, exploring the origins of galaxy formation and dark matter, the nature of black holes and exploring fundamental building-blocks of life from extraterrestrial radio signals.
