Extraordinary Open OnDemand support for HPC centers supporting COVID-19 research

The emergence and spread of the new respiratory Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) was declared a Public Health Emergency in the United States Jan. 31, 2020. The outbreak, now a pandemic, has catalyzed significant activity by federal, state and local governments; the healthcare community; residents across the country; and people around the world. This is not the first emerging infectious disease event that the world will face, nor will it be the last.

High performance computing centers around the world provide unique capabilities that the scientific community may leverage for the COVID-19 response and recovery. These assets may be used for modeling and simulation coupled with machine and deep learning techniques to study a range of areas. As many of these centers utilize or are considering utilizing Open OnDemand as a client interface, the Open OnDemand team encourages any center that could benefit from extraordinary platform development and support to engage with us.
