Creative Technology Fighting Back Against COVID-19 With Processing Power!

Creative Technology dedicates the processing power capacity of its media servers to scientific research to fight COVID-19 disease.

United Kingdom

Creative Technology (CT) UK is home to hundreds of media servers, each with the latest in GPU’s and processors. Ordinarily, these servers are key to delivering live events for our clients but following the outbreak of COVID-19 throughout Europe and beyond, and the related reduction in live events, we have found ourselves in a position to really get creative with our technology. Fighting back against Coronavirus in the best way we know how, and this comes in the form of the Folding@Home project run by Stanford University.

CT London has setup a server farm – doing all we can to support this worthwhile project.

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 analyze complex formulas and graphics in the global fight against COVID-19.

Folding@Home is a distributed computing project for disease research that simulates protein folding, computational drug design, and other types of molecular dynamics. These scientific COVID-19 projects focus on better understanding how these Coronaviruses interact with the human ACE2 receptor required for viral entry into human host cells, and how researchers might be

able to interfere with them through the design of new therapeutic antibodies or small molecules that might disrupt their interaction. There is hope to take advantage of some of the new structural biology and biochemical data that is being rapidly released by researchers around the world who are working to understand these viruses and strategies for defeating them.

Since joining the Folding at Home Project, we are pleased to announce that several other NEP Group companies have also got on-board: Screenworks, Univate, and Bexel to name just a few.

Creative Technology Group is urging all companies in the audiovisual sector to join this project by making their processing power also available for scientific purposes. Researchers are especially in need of more high-spec GPU’s to help, and all the GPU projects are devoted to potential drug targets for COVID-19 right now.

Help to fight COVID-19 by joining this worldwide distributed supercomputer. Please use the Creative Technology group number 240907 to contribute your capacity to our team. You can help by downloading the Folding@Home client to your computer and following the instructions to install it.

We can’t make ventilators – but we CAN fight COVID-19!
