Agnostiq secures $2.4 million CAD to accelerate development of quantum computing software

Agnostiq
Toronto-based software startup Agnostiq has raised a $2.4 million CAD ($2 million USD) seed round to bolster its quantum computing platform. The round, which closed in December, was led by New York’s Differential Ventures, and saw participation from Scout Ventures, Tensility Venture Partners, Boost VC, and Green Egg Ventures. For Differential and Boost, it was their second investment in the Toronto startup, as they previously provided the majority of Agnostiq’s $1 million CAD ($830,000 USD) pre-seed round. Agnostic currently serves financial services organizations in Canada and the United States. In an interview, Elliot MacGowan, Agnostiq’s co-founder and COO, told BetaKit the company decided to raise the round after gaining some product traction and identifying a market opportunity. “We had a fair bit of product traction behind us and...

Cloud computing speeds up new military software

AABSMJFJEJDZDCUZKJJ7BQFQXQ
At the recently launched Army Software Factory in Austin, Texas, platform product manager Capt. James Cho uses cloud computing to speed software development. Coders — who create software for anything from streamlining warehouse operations to improving soldiers’ battlefield performance — take advantage of the cloud’s shared storage, databases and networking that make computing resources more powerful and flexible than those available in on-site data centers. With cloud, “you can dynamically spin up more instances or compute power as needed,” Cho said. “A lot of the toil you would have in managing an on-prem solution for this is abstracted away, and it reduces the amount of work we have to do scale these applications for deployment across the Army.” The software factory isn’t alone in this approach. Across the Defense...

Amazon’s Bid to Recover JEDI Cloud Computing Contract Stays Alive

social
WASHINGTON— Amazon. com Inc.’s bid to win back the Pentagon’s JEDI cloud computing contract stayed alive Wednesday as a federal judge rejected motions by the Defense Department and Microsoft Corp. to dismiss much of Amazon’s challenge of the contract award. Judge Patricia Campbell-Smith of the U.S. Court of Federal Claims rejected the motions, according to a court docket entry. Her opinion and order in the case weren’t made public immediately, making the extent of the government’s legal defeat unclear. The move is significant nonetheless because it opens the door to continued protracted court battles over the Joint Enterprise Defense Infrastructure, or JEDI, contract. ...
