In a recent interview with the OSG, Roy Chartier, founder and chief technology officer of the organization said, “The mission of Cancer Computer is to help accelerate the cure for cancer. We make computing resources, made possible through donations and corporate goodwill, available to research projects, such as those served by the Open Science Grid. That’s why we partnered with the OSG.” He added, “We provide resources directly to researchers, who either need more resources than are available to them departmentally, or need more resources than they otherwise might be able to afford on a commercial cloud platform. In many cases, we will allow researchers to use our platform at no charge.” A full version of the original story can be found here.
