David Egts Red HatDavid Egts, senior director and chief technologist of Red Hat's North American public sector, recently took part in a recent Q&A session with ExecutiveBiz to detail the ongoing importance of edge computing and its capabilities in data processing.  During the Q&A session, Egts also discussed the changes in the federal workforce as our sector continues to adjust to telework as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, the use of edge devices, the benefits and challenges of maintaining the connectivity for the internet of things (IoT), the positive influence of flexible tech infrastructure and more.  You can read the full Q&A session with David Egts below: ExecutiveBiz: Following the COVID-19 pandemic’s impact on federal agencies and the federal workforce’s telework capabilities, what has changed since we last spoke about...

Materials challenges and opportunities for quantum computing hardware

F1.large
Combatting noise on the platformThe potential of quantum computers to solve problems that are intractable for classical computers has driven advances in hardware fabrication. In practice, the main challenge in realizing quantum computers is that general, many-particle quantum states are highly sensitive to noise, which inevitably causes errors in quantum algorithms. Some noise sources are inherent to the current materials platforms. de Leon et al. review some of the materials challenges for five platforms for quantum computers and propose directions for their solution.Science, this issue p. eabb2823Structured AbstractBACKGROUNDThe past two decades have seen intense efforts aimed at building quantum computing hardware with the potential to solve problems that are intractable on classical computers. Several hardware platforms for quantum information...

5 benefits 5 challenges of cloud computing in higher education
Administrators should weigh the benefits against their needs and determine which solutions will provide the best outcomes (AdobeStock/apinan) Chuck Ma With the recent push for online courses, digital lesson plans, and remote learning, cloud-based platforms are more important than ever. Cloud computing offers significant advantages to education, from K-12 schools to university students. But what do administrators need to know before moving forward? To help you decide if cloud education solutions are suitable for your institution, here’s a quick rundown of the five main benefits and considerations of cloud computing in education. 5 Benefits of Cloud Computing 1. Long-term cost savings Cost reduction is...

Tackling Tomorrow’s Computing Challenges Today at 2021 CERN Openlab Technical Workshop

Tackling Tomorrows Computing Challenges Today at 2021 CERN Openlab Technical
March 24, 2021 — CERN openlab held its annual technical workshop on 9-11 March. Due to the pandemic, the 200 participants joined the workshop this year via Zoom. CERN openlab is a unique public-private partnership, through which CERN collaborates with leading technology companies to accelerate innovation in the computing technologies required by the LHC research community. Today, there are over 20 companies and research organisations working together in CERN openlab. The 34 R&D projects carried out through CERN openlab today are all related to computing technologies, but are spread across departments at CERN, as well as across experiments. CERN openlab’s annual technical workshop is an opportunity for those working on these projects to come together – along with representatives of the external members of the collaboration – to discuss...

Edge Computing Solves Challenges Associated with Digital Transformation • Data Center Frontier

Digital Transformation
Traditional cloud architecture makes achieving digital transformation challenging - learn how to simplify the process (Image courtesy of EdgeConneX) 54% of enterprise IT leaders say digital transformation is their #1 top priority. Cloud is one of the most important tools in the digital transformation processes. But it’s not about the infrastructure, it’s about what the cloud enables: cost efficiency/savings, delivery speed of products and/or services, value delivered to business units, and increased speed of innovation. In short, a good cloud strategy can give you a competitive...
