Open source middleware protects and maintains CERN collider

June 14, 2012 No Comments


The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN pushes the smallest known atomic particles to velocities near the speed of light using super-cooled electromagnets kept at operating temperatures near zero degrees Kelvin.

How do you effectively monitor a high-speed hotbed such as the supercollider? Felix Ehm, a member of CERN’s beam control group, says it can be done with specially tuned open source middleware. He described his experiences with such software – the Apache Camel integration framework and the ActiveMQ messaging system – at the recent CamelOne conference in Boston.
