In that video they mention an interesting data processing problem the LHC IT infrastructure needs to solve:

They need to detect some particular collission that occurs about 2x per year, keeping LHC running during that 2 year period at a rate of about 40 million collisions per second, of which generally about 100,000 collision events are stored.

Needle in haystack much?
