Fighting COVID-19

with Folding@Home

 

ER Productions is Fighting Back Against COVID-19 with our Processing Power!

 

Having seen what our friends over at Creative Technology UK were doing with their server resource, we decided to join up and help where we can.

Creative Technology (CT) UK is home to hundreds of media servers, each with the latest in GPUs and processors. Ordinarily, these servers are key to delivering live events for clients but following the outbreak of COVID-19 throughout Europe and beyond, and the related reduction in live events, CT have found themselves in a position to really get creative with their technology.

 

The Folding@home project, run by Stanford University, allows companies such as CT and ER Productions to contribute to fighting back against Coronavirus. Researchers from all over the world can now use the CPU (Central Processing Unit) and GPU (Graphic Processing Unit) capacity of our media servers to draw, calculate and analyse complex formulas and graphics in the global fight against COVID-19.

 

ER Productions has set-up a small server farm in order to do all we can to support this worthwhile project, and we are urging all companies in the audio-vidual sector to join by making their processing power also available for scientific purposes.
