US fintech Ally Financial will collaborate with Microsoft on Azure Quantum solutions to develop quantum computing skills and explore how new algorithms and future quantum hardware could improve customer experience. With claims that the industry is reaching the limits of classical computing, quantum computing has become an attractive proposition. A quantum computer can perform calculations based on the probability of an object's state before it is measured - instead of just 1s or 0s and process more data compared to their traditional counterparts. Ally is collaborating with Microsoft as part of its Enterprise Acceleration Program (EAP) to resolve optimisation issues, as well as utilise available, rich data to support financial services professionals make better decisions, learn why a customer may contact a...

Sunlight Partners with LanternEdge to Unlock True Edge Computing Performance with HCI

sunlight logo black big
CAMBRIDGE, England--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sunlight, a developer of virtualization technology for data-intensive applications, today announced a technology partnership with LanternEdge, a provider of technologies that enable intelligence in harsh and hazardous environments. Bringing together Sunlight’s HCI stack and LanternEdge’s HarshProTM Servers, this partnership will enable enterprises to take advantage of all the high-performance benefits edge computing has to offer, regardless of environmental conditions. Edge computing reduces latency and data transmission costs incurred by traditional cloud computing, but not all enterprises are equipped with the right infrastructure to meet the power, performance and environmental demands of the edge and therefore cannot truly reap the benefits. Hyperconvergence allows for scalability, security, high...

Cornami Partners with Inpher, Pioneer in Secret Computing, to Deliver Quantum-Secure Privacy-Preserving Computing on Encrypted Data

CAMPBELL, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Cornami and Inpher announced today their partnership to collaborate on delivering commercially viable Fully Homomorphic Encryption (FHE) functionality to the market. FHE has long been described as transformative for data privacy and cloud security as it enables computing on encrypted data sets, thereby keeping the underlying data secure. However, existing FHE algorithms are computationally intensive and have been often considered as not yet practical for real world applications. Cornami’s partnership with Inpher overcomes such limitations to deliver real-time FHE computing to a ready and rapidly expanding market. Inpher is a cryptographic Secret Computing® company that powers privacy-preserving AI and analytics. Secret Computing has brought years of academic research in secure Multi-Party Computation (MPC)...
