TopicBig Data processing at High Energy Physics experiments
I present various aspects of the computing resource needs experiments in HEP, in particular at the Large Hadron Collider at CERN, have encountered so far and how this will evolve in the future when moving from LHC to HL-LHC ten years from now, as the already Exa-scale levels of data we are processing could increase by a further order of magnitude. The distributed computing environment has been a great success and the inclusion of new super-computing facilities for the future a big challenge, which we are successfully mastering with a considerable contribution from our Russian colleagues.
