Mr Alan Silverman (CERN)


CERN is approaching the limit of what can be housed in its Computer Centre but there is no clear consensus about the provision of new capacity. While discussions continue, CERN has decided to take two interim measures, partly to satisfy immediate and medium-term needs and partly to gain experience in these domains, namely external hosting and the acquisition and operation of container-based solutions. I will describe the options considered for each of these and expose our current plans.
