ATLAS is a particle physics experiment at the Large Hadron Collider at CERN that is searching for new discoveries in the head-on collisions of protons of extraordinarily high energy. ATLAS will learn about the basic forces that have shaped our Universe since the beginning of time and that will determine its fate. Among the possible unknowns are extra dimensions of space, unification of fundamental forces, and evidence for dark matter candidates in the Universe. Following the discovery of the Higgs boson, further data will allow in-depth investigation of the boson's properties and thereby of the origin of mass.
The ATLAS community would like to profit of the EGI Federated Cloud resources to absorbe workload peaks in ATLAS grid.
This use case foresees the usage of SlipStream, developed by the private company SixSq, to access the EGI Federated Cloud. SixSq is developing an OCCI connector for SlipStream to allow the access to the EGI Federated Cloud resources through SlipStream
