Dirk Duellmann, TweetStorage and Persistency Specialist at CERN
Biography: Dirk Duellmann
Dirk Duellmann is deputy leader of the data and storage services group in CERN's IT department, which provides storage services and data handling frameworks for the physics community at CERN. He is responsible for the development evolution of CERN's storage components and high performance disk pools for LHC data analysis. Previously Dirk lead the LCG persistency framework development and the LCG distributed database deployment projects. Before he worked on object and relational databases in the RD45 and Espresso projects.
Dirk joint CERN in 1995 after receiving a PhD in high energy physics from the University of Hamburg. Since 1986 he worked in several software companies on the development of database management systems and database applications.
The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) is the flagship project of the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN). Last year some 20 PB of data have been delivered to the high-energy physics community and have been analyzed by more than 8000 users worldwide. This presentation describes the particular requirements and boundary conditions for LHC data and storage management and the infrastructure in place at CERN and many partner sites. It will also cover the main lessons learned during several years of development and deployment of the current distributed data handling system.
