In the battle against coronavirus, we are teaming up to give researchers on the front lines some desperately needed air cover

None of us have faced a threat like this before. But it’s also an opportunity for the world to come together and combine our resources around a common goal. AI and genomic studies are one essential tool in combating the pandemic. To help researchers accelerate their AI-based genomics research, Core Scientific will provide, starting today, free 30-day access to ONTAP AI to help researchers take advantage of NVIDIA’s GPU computing combined with NetApp’s cloud connected all flash storage systems to use NVIDIA Parabricks for GPU-accelerated novel coronavirus related research.

NetApp, Core Scientific, and NVIDIA are teaming up to deliver a free 30 day access to AI infrastructure as a service The NetApp ONTAP AI solution is built on NVIDIA DGX AI systems and NetApp Flash Based Storage, in combination with the Plexus AI stack from Core Scientific.  Plexus provides easy, portal-based access to researchers, with a rich library of data science tools. The infrastructure is cloud-connected, secure, and up and running. It’s ready to be connected to researchers’ data sets anywhere, and be put to work for researchers immediately.
