Welcome to the CMS Tier-2 center#

CMS T2 Center#

The Wisconsin group operates a large and active CMS Tier-2 computing center, supported by grants from the National Science Foundation. This facility benefits from its collaboration with a strong computer science team and seamless integration with the campus-wide computing grid.#

Our Tier-2 computing center has participated in projects with broad impact, including#

  • Any Data, Anytime, Anywhere (AAA)#

  • Grid Laboratories of Wisconsin (GLOW)#

  • The Data Intensive Science University Network (DISUN)#

  • Rapid-response Adaptive Computing Environment (RACE)#

We are part of the global collaboration with the CMS experiment which is being conducted at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN. Our T2 facility will support the computational needs of physicists in the US and across the globe to process the vast amount of data that will be harvested by the CMS experiment. At the same time, for the benefit of other science research projects in the US, we are also sharing the T2 computational and storage resources through our active membership in the Open Science Grid (OSG) Consortium.#
