DEI has joined the COVID-19 High Performance Computing Consortium as an Affiliate member.  The HPC Consortium brings together the Federal government, industry, and academic leaders to provide access to the world's most powerful high-performance computing resources in support of COVID-19 research.

COVID-19 High Performance Computing Consortium is a unique private-public effort spearheaded by the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy, the U.S. Department of Energy and IBM to bring together leaders from government, industry, and academia volunteering free compute time and resources on their world-class machines.

DEI and other Consortium Affiliates, including Atrio, Flatiron, Fluid Numerics and SAS, provide a range of computing services and expertise to accelerate research for fighting COVID-19.

Scientific researchers working on studies, treatments, and vaccines for COVID-19 receive free licenses of DEI's accelerated data transport software, including ExpeDat and CloudDat, allowing them to move files ranging from megabytes to terabytes among research institutions, cloud providers, and personal computers at speeds many times faster than traditional software.

DEI's software allows researchers to exchange large data sets across both public and private networks extremely quickly and reliably.  ExpeDat and CloudDat are trusted by companies, institutions, and governments around to world to move massive, highly sensitive data sets.  Companies and organizations using DEI products include: Children's Hospital of Philadelphia (CHoP), Centre Hospitalier Universitaire Vaudois (CHUV) / University of Lausanne, Complete Genomics, 8K Miles which works with some of the largest pharmaceutical companies in the world, and many government organizations.
