In Brief

A new study might help confirm that D-Wave Systems’ quantum computer chip might actually be what it claims to be. Conducted at the University of Southern California, where the D-Wave system owned by aerospace contractor Lockheed Martin is based, a team of scientists has concluded that the 128-qubit processor “behaved in a way that agrees with a model called ‘quantum Monte Carlo,’ yet disagreed with two candidate classical models.” In two weeks at our Structure Data conference, D-Wave CEO Vern Brownell will talk about what quantum computers can do and how they’ll be available as cloud services.

Red Hat Enterprise Linux is, as of today, available on Amazon GovCloud, the separate U.S. cloud region for workloads that must meet certain federal regulations and compliance requirements. RHEL has been available on other Amazon EC2 regions since 2011, and last year Red Hat made a free tier of RHEL service available to some qualified users. RHEL is seen as the standard Linux for enterprise accounts that need to show they are supported by their vendors for compliance and legal reasons.

When it comes to computing, there’s no such thing as too fast. Now startup A3Cube claims it has built a network interface card that blows by Infiniband, the current standard for fast interconnections between compute nodes and between those nodes and storage. A3Cube, which uses a secret variation of PCI Express technology, said its RONNIEE Express technology links 128 servers with 100-nanosecond latency. More here from ExtremeTech.
