Before the first phase of CERN openlab started in 2003, the collaboration carried out some intial work starting in 2001. The first CERN openlab annual report covers this period.
The framework of the second phase of openlab was similar to that of the first phase, with the aim of hosting a few major projects with a particular focus on Grid-related technologies and services. The projects were organized in four activities.
The Automation and Controls Competence Centre was created at the inception of the third phase, with Siemens joining as a partner. New projects were carried out with HP in the Networking Competence Centre, with Intel in the Platform Competence Centre, and with Oracle and the Networking Competence.
The fourth phase (2012-2014) will address new topics crucial to the CERN scientific programme, such as cloud computing, business analytics, the next generation of hardware, and security for the myriads of network devices.
