Nuco cloud has started a joint venture of data centers and IT companies to fight Corona (SARS-CoV-2)

Extraordinary times require extraordinary measures

Nuco.cloud is redirecting all efforts towards helping scientific research to battle coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2). Nuco.cloud has started a joint venture with CUDO and Bitkern so we can already provide 7 PFLOPS of computing power.

We have also contacted NORIS Network, e-shelter, Hetzner, Lenovo, IBM, ScaleCommerce, LMU Munich, TU Munich, the Research Center Jülich and other companies or institutions to use their data centers and supercomputers in this case. While some have already agreed verbally or in writing to support our joint venture, we are still waiting for commitments from others.

This Joint Venture can provide large scale computing power for the lowest possible price for the scientists working on a vaccine for SARS-CoV-2. 

An inquiry to the Bavarian Government to support our joint venture is already underway. With government support it would be possible to provide computing power to scientists free of charge.

Furthermore we decided to extend the token sale and the current price period in order to focus on delivering computing power as soon as possible to the scientific research battling SARS-CoV-2. We want to make sure everyone who wants to support our Joint Venture is able to purchase NCDT tokens at the early price discount.

If you think you could help or know anyone (especially data centers) who could provide computing power, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Every little help matters.
