Central Database Servers and Services


CN division offers support for the commercial relational databases used across the CERN site. This article will explain some of the history and indicate the present and future evolution of these services. In broad terms the user community consists of the accelerator and engineering community, the users of AS division databases and tools, the users of divisional databases and some experimental physicists. Coordination meetings between CN and the principal users have existed for many years.
