LHC@home 2.0 launched

We are announcing the start of beta testing of the first second-generation LHC@home project.

It is the first of what is expected to be a series of physics applications running on the LHC@home 2.0 Volunteer Cloud platform.

This is a test project, to demonstrate the use of virtual machines using the CERN-developed CernVM technology inside BOINC systems to perform fully-fledged LHC physics event simulation on volunteer computers.

All LHC@home volunteers are welcome to join the beta testing, which will initially accept about 1000 active helpers. Full information for joining is given at: LHC@home 2.0

About LHC@Home
What is LHC@home?

Overview

Most of the scientific computing challenges that the LHC experiments are facing will require access to huge amounts of storage, the LHC will produce 15 Petabytes (15 million Gigabytes) of data per year. These data requirements mean that most analysis programmes cannot be run on individual PCs. This is why CERN is leading the development of Grid computing, which aims to link hundreds of major computing centres around the world.
Thought it might be fun!

Repost, but I don't think it was into beta yet back then.
