As we continue the COVID-19 vaccination effort across the globe and plan for future pandemics, we need to ensure that advanced technologies for streaming analytics are incorporated into the management of the distribution network. The United Kingdom, Bahrain, Canada, Mexico, and the United States became some of the first countries to approve the authorization and distribution of vaccinations to combat the COVID-19 pandemic in December of 2020. Soon after, leaders were tasked with the immense challenge of quickly building a global and nationwide logistics network and standing up millions of vaccination locations. The use of in-memory computing with real-time digital twins brought some needed help. Vaccination rollout operations did not go without missteps that slowed down the life-saving effort. For example, in the U.S., there were 20 million...

REUTERS/Brendan McDermid/File PhotoOracle Corp (ORCL.N) on Tuesday launched a cloud computing service powered by data center chips from Ampere Computing based on technology from Arm Ltd, the second major cloud company to offer an Arm-based service after Amazon.com's (AMZN.O) Amazon Web Services.Cloud providers are some of the biggest buyers of chips because they rent out the computing power they generate to thousands of other companies. Until recently, however, almost all the chips cloud services bought came from Intel Corp (INTC.O) and Advanced Micro Devices (AMD.O) because most business software is written to run on those processors.That began to change in 2018 when Amazon, the largest cloud...

Edge computing drives business innovation

Intel edge computer hero
As technology use has grown exponentially during the pandemic, generating unprecedented volumes of critical business data, businesses are turning to the edge to help accelerate growth and drive business transformation, a survey from Intel has revealed. The report, The edge outlook: the now, the new and the next of edge computing, made the case that with the edge set to transform every aspect of life and business, organisations must embrace collaboration and take advantage of ecosystems that allow them to capitalise on all its opportunities. It found that the rate at which the world is changing is exacerbated by the pandemic, climate crisis and rising sociopolitical tensions. Alongside this, reliance on data is soaring, with trillions of minutes processed on video platforms each month. Intel said businesses need this data readily...

Vendors Aim to Enhance Kubernetes Edge Computing

Linux distribution publisher SUSE is working closely with its partner ecosystem to better support Kubernetes edge computing. With noncloud networks projected to be processing the lion’s share of global data by 2025, developers have turned to containerization tools such as Kubernetes, which is poised to accelerate edge software deployment. Containers for edge development were a focus at the SUSECON Conference, enabling developers to create development environments that enable workloads to be moved from central clouds or data centers to the edge without conversion requirements. Containers are self-contained runtime environments that enable developers to minimize operating system variations that would typically stall performance of code. They include a software dependencies, libraries and binaries, as well as configuration files which govern...

Oracle launches Arm-based cloud computing service using Ampere chips

oracle launches arm based cloud computing service using ampere chips
By Stephen Nellis (Reuters) - Oracle Corp on Tuesday launched a cloud computing service powered by data center chips from Ampere Computing based on technology from Arm Ltd, the second major cloud company to offer an Arm-based service after Amazon.com's Amazon Web Services. Cloud providers are some of the biggest buyers of chips because they rent out the computing power they generate to thousands of other companies. Until recently, however, almost all the chips cloud services bought came from Intel Corp and Advanced Micro Devices because most business software is written to run on those processors. That began to change in 2018 when Amazon, the largest cloud provider, announced a service using its own custom chip made with intellectual property from Arm, the British firm whose technology already underlies most smartphone chips and is steadily...

Xanadu Lands $100 Million as Investments Pour Into Quantum Computing

1621999659 social
Xanadu Quantum Technologies Inc., which aims to commercialize quantum computing using particles of light, has raised $100 million in new funding as investor interest in the industry heats up.On Tuesday, Xanadu announced a Series B funding led by Bessemer Venture Partners, one of Silicon Valley’s oldest such firms. Funding to date for the five-year-old company now totals $145 million, said Christian Weedbrook, founder and chief executive of Xanadu. Quantum computing has the potential to solve some problems many millions of times faster than a conventional computer, which is why major technology companies and startups are working to commercialize it using various approaches. Traditional computers store information as either zeros or ones. Quantum computers use quantum bits, or qubits, which represent and...
