How to discover the Higgs Boson in an Oracle database?

Tuesday, 4 December, 2012

Maaike Limper from the CERN openlab Database Competence Centre presented a progress report at the UK Oracle User Group (UKOUG) conference 2012 in Birmingham about a joint project to investigate the possibility of storing and analysing the complex physics data from the LHC project at CERN in an Oracle database. The presentation highlighted the advantages and limitations of using Oracle database software to handle one of the biggest data challenges of our time and is available on the CERN openlab website presentation section.

The same day, Luca Canali also gave a talk (prepared with Marcin Blaszczyk) at UKOUG 2012 about Active Data Guard at CERN.
