SAND join the fight against COVID-19

At SAND we have been practising social distancing and working from home where possible to help prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus. However, we also recognise the significant processing power we possess as predominantly computing based geophysics company.

In light of this, we are dedicating idle resources within our processing computers to the Folding@Home distributed computing simulations of COVID-19 protein dynamics. You can learn more about their specific COVID-19 project here:

As of March 20th 2020 this network has grown from 98.7 petaFLOPS of combined processing power to a whopping 470+ petaFLOPS.

As an industry we are well armed to help contribute towards this effort, so would implore everyone to dedicate any resources they can spare to this cause.

And please if you can, stay at home!

Update: Following the publication of this post we have been approached by rehab4addiction.co.uk with guide about guarding mental health during the COVID-19 pandemic.
