AMD and CERN, European Organization for Nuclear Researchannounced a new study in which CERN used second-generation AMD EPYC processors to collect
data from the detectors of the Large Andron Collider, where data on particle collisions are collected in the amount of 40 Tb / s. In particular, as part of the LHCb experiment, scientists plan to find out what happened.
immediately after the Big Bang, allowing matter to survive and create the Universe in the form in which it is now known.

For the LHCb experiment, I / O and memory performance with AMD EPYC processors were obtained. A large number of AMD EPYC CPU cores enabled fast data processing, while 128 PCI lines
Express 4.0 has become an advantage. The LHCb used four Mellanox 200Gbit InfiniBand adapters per server, and AMD EPYC 7742 processors c 64 cores allowed Mellanox devices in each server to work without delay. “With AMD EPYC CPUs, we now have the opportunity to support
level more than a terabyte of data per second for days. Achieving this with one server, and not using a supercomputer, as we did before, is a serious advance, ”says Nico
Neufeld Niko Neufeld, Project Manager, LHCb Online Computing at CERN.

VTB patented data verification technology for distributed microservice systems

VTB Group received a patent for a mechanism for validating complex data structures in microservice architecture. This solution allows you to reduce the cost and complexity of validating input
by the user or transferred to the system through the interface.

etc.

Such checks will be performed both on the user side, for example, in the client’s browser, and on the side that provides verification and processing of server data. The solution allows each developer
create a specific microservice for the team and, at the right time, apply their own rules for validating data that falls into automated systems.
