Yannix is contributing to the global effort to find a treatment in the fight against COVID-19.
To that end, Yannix has dedicated its 100 teraflop multi-GPU render server to the cause via the Folding@Home project. The Yannix computer server dedicated to this effort has been given a completely new OS install on a brand new drive before being moved outside of our secure production zone and placed on a separate internet connection to begin working for Folding@Home.
Folding@Home specializes in using computer simulations to understand the moving parts of proteins. The project is a global effort that is bringing together volunteers who run simulations of protein dynamics on their personal computers. The hope is that insight obtained from these simulations will ultimately reveal “new therapeutic opportunities” in the fight against COVID-19.
To date, Yannix has been contributing about 30 work units per day since our server went online with Folding@Home.
