What’s the universe made of? How does it work? Answering these big questions is CERN’s mission. Home to the world-renowned Large Hadron Collider (LHC), CERN is advancing the boundaries of human knowledge through breakthrough research in fundamental physics. Preparing for the third run of Large Hadron Collider experiments, sure to produce unprecedented volumes of data, CERN needed a faster and more redundant network at scale. In this session, Fons and David will explain how CERN’s network is structured, enabling automated configuration and management, and how it can adapt easily to changing requirements. During this session, the audience will learn about CERN’s Datacenter Network Strategy, CERN’s technical and operational networking challenges, solution direction, learnings and best practices.
