Experiment Database Service

This service provides support for Oracle-based services to the Physics community at CERN, in particular for applications related to detector conditions, PVSS, bookkeeping, file transfers, physics production processing, detector construction and calibration, and LHC Computing Grid services (such as the LCG file catalog LFC or the gLite file transfer FTS, the grid monitoring tools and experiments dashboards). The physics database service team provides coordination of the deployment of database applications, consultancy for application design, development and tuning, administration of the physics databases in co-operation with the experiments or grid deployment teams, database resource allocation to the experiments and a 24x7 piquet team to handle any incidents related to the services.
