Expedited Passports and Visas Helps Support Zika and Ebola Research through Computing Resources

Expedited Passports & Visas, a nationwide passport expediting service, is donating spare computing resources to help find cures for Zika and Ebola.

Locally owned passport expediting company, Expedited Passports & Visas, helps Zika and Ebola research through its computing resources. Contributions generated from EPV’s unprocessed computing resources are helping through World Community Grid, which help scientists and their labs who cannot afford large-scale computing to facilitate their research efforts. World Community Grid uses computer’s spare idle time of Internet- connected computers to perform research calculations. The computers donating their resources from EPV have been running for only several weeks but has already surpassed 11,000 hours of computer processing time.

CEO and Co-Founder of EPV, Scott Averbach, has been participating in World Community Grid for over 9 years; his donated computing time consists of more than 118,000 computing hours that have gone towards advanced medical and scientific research. Volunteer computing resources has helped EPV in an international humanitarian realm. While they help their customers make it to their destinations for travel with expedited passports and travel visa services, they are also helping national and international scientists and teams make strides in their research.

“Donating our spare computing resources for such great causes as World Community Grid is a no-brainer, it’s all about helping to solve highly complex and computing intensive problems that need to be solved to provide a better future for everyone. As a company, we specifically chose to support both the OpenZika and Outsmart Ebola Projects Together projects because of the impact these illnesses have on the travel industry,” said Scott Averbach when he recently gave an Internal update about the status of the companies’ computing efforts thus far.
