Platform's collaboration with CERN recognized as 2011 Computerworld Honors Laureate

17 Jun 2011 Toronto - Platform Computing's collaboration and technology partnership with the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) has been recognized as a 2011 Honors Laureate candidate byComputerworld. The annual award programme, which honours visionary applications of information technology promoting positive social, economic and educational change, recognized CERN's groundbreaking research. The research was made possible by its implementation of the world's largest Cloud computing environment for scientific collaboration, which is managed by Platform Computing.

"When embarking upon a project like the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), we need every ounce of computing power possible and to be recognized as an Honors Laureate only inspires us more", stated Dr. Helge Meinard, head of the group responsible for the facilities processing LHC data. "We are considering Platform Computing's products to help us scale and maximize a one-of-a-kind HPC environment to help our dedicated team of scientific researchers to unravel the complexities of the universe."

"Platform Computing has been enabling distributed computing environments for over 18 years and now our shift to Cloud computing is connecting researchers worldwide and allowing transformative scientific work to be done on a global scale", stated Songnian Zhou, CEO, Platform Computing. "We are truly honoured to support the work of CERN as a technology collaborator and thrilled to see their dedicated team recognized among this year's elite group of Computerworld Honors Laureates."

"The number and quality of nominations this year were very inspiring and demonstrate how valuable IT is to community change", stated John Amato, Publisher,Computerworld. "Computerworldis very proud to name the 2011 class of Laureates and showcase their initiatives benefiting society through innovative uses of IT."

As a 2011 Honors Laureate, CERN considers employing Platform ISF to manage its Cloud computing environment, effectively allowing more than 12,000 scientists and researchers across 68 countries to work together to unlock the origins of the universe.
