CERN

The CDC 7600 in its crate, just prior to leaving the site. The Siemens 7890 replaced the siemens 7880. The 7600 came to CERN back in 1972, and its twelve-year lifetime is somewhat unusual in computing circles, where the working lives of large machines frequently span just a few years. During more than 61,000 hours of total operation at CERN, the 7600 ran about 17 million jobs and read more than 1,250,000 tapes.
