Cloud computing guide for researchers – Cloud technology for high-energy physics computing


Randall Sobie is the HEP Computing Group Leader at the University of Victoria. He works on ATLAS project, a collaboration of 3,000 international physicists. The project has collected hundreds of petabytes of data and Randall’s team faced the challenge of storing and accessing information on-premise. With the help of Microsoft Azure, Randall created a flexible cloud system for large workloads such as high-energy physics computing. The system has streamlined user workflow, sparking a digital transformation in the research community.

“Azure basically gives us a solid, rock solid performance – no questions asked.”
Rolf Seuster, HEPnet Technical Manager, University of Victoria
