Cancer Computer

Description

Cancer Computer is a non-profit with a goal to create a computing platform, as a service, for cancer researchers. In just under 2 years since founding, we've received enough donations, to deploy a modest cluster, supporting OSG, the Galaxy Project, researchers in private virtual environments, and scavenging spare CPU and GPU cycles for public projects such as Rosetta and Folding at Home, and the World Community Grid. We've recently hired an ex-fortune 500 VP as our Executive Director, a professional fundraiser has offered to volunteer time to us, and we are about to sign an agreement, with a Federal Canadian Agency, to secure all of their evergreened computing, networking, and storage hardware, for several years.
