Fermilab's Grid Computing Center is dedicated to supporting experiments in their scientific endeavors. It houses thousands of computers and is the most compute- and power-intensive data center at Fermilab.

The effort to maintain Fermilab's data centers' reliability is a challenging one. Data centers run quietly in the background of the lab's scientific program, and when they run well, you shouldn't even notice. When there's a hiccup — even a few minutes of down time in one of our data centers — it can jeopardize scientific computing operations significantly. Our goal in the Core Computing Division is to operate reliable, efficient data centers. Two recent projects have helped us achieve this.
