The Pegasus project was introduced at a time when particle physics was demanding a new form of computer system capable of processing the vast quantity of data to be produced by the introduction in 2007 of a new particle accelerator at CERN (Europe's particle physics laboratory based in Geneva, home of the Large Hadron Collider). This project aimed to understand the way particle physicists were constructing their data processing grid, and how they were introducing it into use, in order to improve the usability of grids for wider information systems research.
