Atlas Tier 2

Together with the MPI for Physics (MPP), the Leibnitz Rechenzentrum (LRZ) and the department of physics of the LMU MPCDF operates the Munich Tier2 Grid Center within the Worldwide LHC Computing Grid (WLCG) of CERN. Through this project storage capacity and computing power is provided for the ATLAS particle physics experiments at CERN, for the Belle experiment at KEK in Japan and a data archiving facility is provided for the HEP data preservation project DPHEP. Since the discovery of the Higgs boson in 2012 at LHC the grid center has been used even more extensively both for simulation studies as well as data analysis.
