We live in moment in time when – due to the SARS-CoV-2 global pandemic – our projects have been suspended or are running on the minimum available capacity. We are trying to work from home, offices are closed in most cases and raw power of our machines – that we are usualy using to simulate optical, thermal or mechanical proceses – is wasted.
But not any more!
We decided to transfer the computing power of our infrastructure to help universities, healthcare organizations and laboratories fight the biggest diseases of our time (including the SARS-CoV-2 virus). We participate in the Folding@home program.
The initial process is very easy:
- You must go to the Folding@home page (link below).
- Download the client.
- Install it on your device.
- Start calculations!
You can calculate on a CPU or GPU and decide how much power you can donate.
Until now, our machines have calculated several packages related to different types of research. You can choose one of several research topics or leave “Any disease”.
This is our default option and we are very happy to receive several packages to perform SARS-CoV-1 and SARS-CoV-2 simulations.
Why did we decide to take part? Because in addition to activities that we all must remember:
- HANDS: Wash them often with soap and water.
- ELBOW: Cover yourself when you cough.
- FACE: Do not touch the eyes, nose and mouth.
- DISTANCE: Keep a distance of 1-1.5 m.
- SAFETY: Stay at home.
We believe that we must do everything to help. This is one of our duties as a technology/engineering company. We have resources that can accelerate the simulation of processes occurring during the spread and development of diseases, better understand their mechanism, which should significantly speed up drug research.
Don’t hesitate to participate!
