Paper Abstract

Several new experiments in particle physics are being prepared by large international consortia. They will generate data at the rate of 100-200 MB/sec over a number of years, which will result in many PetaBytes (1015 B) of data. This data will have to be made accessible to a large, international community of researchers, and as such it calls for a new approach to the problem of data analysis. Estimates of the computing needs of future experiments, as well as scenarios of overcoming potential difficulties are presented, based on the studies conducted by LHC consortia and Grid computing projects.
