ATLAS Experiment with Cori and Theta
National Energy Research Scientific Computing Center (NERSC), Argonne Leadership Computing Facility (ALCF)
The ATLAS experiment is a general purpose particle detector based at CERN’s Large Hadron Collider (LHC), the world’s largest and most powerful particle accelerator. ATLAS scientists use Globus to transfer data between Theta, the ALCF’s Intel-Cray system which serves as a bridge to exascale, and NERSC’s Cori supercomputer.
Globus provides multiple solutions for automating management of data generated by instruments, such as cryoelectron microscopes, nanopore sequencers and synchrotron beamlines.
