Happy April 1! Announcing Cyrus ROSVAC-4!

Seattle, WA, April 1 2019. Cyrus Biotechnology is proud to announce a major step forward in computer biochemistry, the ROSVAC-4, an industrial-strength minicomputer custom-designed for simulations of biological molecules, with an astonishingly small 1900 sq ft. footprint, capable of over 10 simultaneous protein amino acid sequence calculations per annum, improving on ROSVAC-2 at 5 calculations per annum.
Data is input into ROSVAC-4 using our proprietary PROTTAPES, custom-designed tape input and storage appliances capable of over 100 bytes per second data storage, recording an atomic protein structure in mere hours! ROSVAC-4 displays protein cartoon structures in beautiful 128×128 black and white pixels (ROSVAC-4 operator control booth pictured below). ROSVAC-4 requires a minimal staff of 5 technicians and 3 data entry staff, along with 1 glassblower and a part-time blacksmith for routine repairs.
“The best part is how easy it is to use! I just startup the generator, rebuild the broken vacuum tubes, initiate startup procedures, finalize boot loading, set switches 7 through 1028 and then press the red button and turn the key” said ROSVAC-4 beta tester Steve Smith of the USAF. “Three months later I have results I can use.”.
“Why run on the cloud when you can have a ROSVAC-4 installed on-site in a dedicated room for only a few million bucks?”, says user John Jacobs at General Electric, “last time I checked its not raining!”.
Cyrus is taking orders for ROSVAC-4 now! Installation at your facility complete in 12-18 months. Prices start at only $15 million, and support contracts are available. Cyrus is also offering a 6 month training course at ROS-U for corporate technicians.
Thanks for reading! If it is not already clear, Cyrus is not really launching a ROSVAC-4, but we offer a best-in-class cloud-based protein modeling and design tool, Cyrus Bench based on Rosetta, with a set of new features released over the end of 2018 and early 2019 including arbitrary small molecule modeling (for small molecule discovery, e.g. more accurate modeling of drug/protein interactions) and antibody structure prediction.
