CERN hosts 4 of the biggest, most complex and momentous experiments in the world history. LHC (Large Hadron Collider) is one of the 4 and outputs a whopping total of 1 petabyte/sec data. Without the proficiency of united IT geniuses around the world this data would never enter the pipeline. Watch an impressive animation that represents how CERN’s big data are collected, processed, recorded and distributed.
