Atos Wins UK Quantum Simulator Contract

No sooner did the news break that Atos had accepted a £24 million settlement with the UK government over a major supercomputing contract award (HPE’s weather supercomputer for the UK Met Office) than the UK announced it has purchased a second quantum computing simulator from Atos. The Quantum Learning Machine (QLM) is a quantum simulator […]

Nimbix Federated: A comprehensive architecture for secure, cloud-managed, multi-site supercomputing-as-a-service

High-performance computing (HPC) is a complex ecosystem that is increasingly being democratized by cloud and cloud-like technologies. This increased accessibility enables engineers and scientists to consume highly advanced resources without extensive IT expertise, advancing the digital transformation of the physical world. Now that industry has had a taste of on-demand supercomputing, the hunger for faster, […]

The Three Variations of Supercomputing Cloud Technologies

“Cloud computing” is one of the most overloaded terms in the history of information technology.  Yes, there is the NIST Definition of Cloud Computing that many will point to, but the sheer number of adaptations of models for “enabling ubiquitous, convenient, on-demand” access to computing resources knows no limit. In this sponsored post, our friends at Atos provide three major and very different types of issues and found that a common technology thread worked across the board.  In fact, they also learned that while the models are different, organizations often benefit from more than one.
