This presentation will describe the expansion of the RHIC/ATLAS Computing Facility (RACF) to accomodate its commitments to the computational needs of the scientific programs at Brookhaven National Laboratory. The expansion has nearly tripled the footprint of the facility over the past 2+ years and allows the RACF to adequately meet our computing and storage requirements for the foreseeable...

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...

Silicon design technical complexity is increasing every year due to several new features and process technology shrinks. Additionally, the business drivers such as shorter product development time, reduced headcount, and lower cost is increasing pre-silicon verification, high degree of design automation, and global multi-site design teams. These two factors (technological and business) are...
