LOS ANGELES, Oct. 07, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — OpenDrives, the global provider of enterprise-grade, hyper-scalable network-attached-storage (NAS) solutions, announces today the availability of Atlas 2.1, the next version of its software platform and file system that powers all OpenDrives storage solutions. Atlas 2.1 enables a scale-out storage architecture to accelerate performance, power, and flexibility of OpenDrives’ storage lineup, including the recently released Ultra Hardware series. Customers are now able to overcome significant constraints within key functional areas, such as scalability, operational management, performance analytics, and service availability. 

“Many people think of storage as purely hardware. While it underpins the processes and interconnections within a storage solution, it’s the software that drives true performance,” said Sean Lee, Chief Product and Strategy Officer at

The report could provide a regulatory blueprint for lawmakers who have significantly ramped up rhetoric criticizing the tech giants in recent years, but have yet to actually pass any laws that would significantly check the industry’s power. The report’s authors, all Democrats, hope it will be a turning point for how Washington approaches corporate consolidation.

Congress must revive its tradition of robust oversight over the antitrust laws and increased market concentration in our economy,” the report said. 

Here are our top seven takeaways after sifting through the nearly 450-page report:

1. It proposes some most sweeping revisions to antitrust law in decades.

The report proposes changing existing laws in ways that could have far-reaching effects throughout the entire economy. The report recommends:

  • New limits on companies operating in adjacent lines of business, which could impact how tech companies operate

Rep. David Cicilline (D-RI) thinks antitrust regulation of Big Tech companies like Amazon, Apple, Facebook, and Google is going to be tough, and in order to pass meaningful reforms that rein in the power of Big Tech companies, Congress will need the help of the American people. Cicilline is chair of the antitrust subcommittee in Congress and spoke Sunday as part of a Yale University School of Law conference about antitrust ahead of the anticipated release of what Cicilline calls the most extensive antitrust law reform investigation by Congress in more than 50 years.

Identifying anticompetitive behavior by big companies is pretty easy, he said, but developing solutions and gathering the necessary political support for reform is the challenge.

“We’re going to have to combat companies that have an enormous stake in maintaining the status quo, which has been enormously profitable for them, and so this will be a big

Here’s What You Need To Remember: While the F-35 continues to be an advanced fighter jet, there are times when it is clear that upgrading an old war bird like the B-52 is often a lot easier than working out the bugs in what should be a state-of-the-art fighter jet.

Introduced in the 1950s, the B-52 Stratofortress has remained in service thanks in part to the numerous upgrades it has received over the years. In fact, because it was introduced before the days of advanced computers, the B-52 has actually been at times much easier to update than more modern aircraft.

By contrast, the U.S. military’s highly advanced F-35 Joint Strike Fighter, which was developed with the latest and greatest aviation computer systems and software, has had no shortage of problems and bugs to work out, while upgrades have been anything but easy.

Since its introduction, the F-35s

COLLEGE PARK, Md., Oct. 1, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — IonQ, the leader in quantum computing, today unveiled its next generation quantum computer system. The new hardware features 32 perfect qubits with low gate errors, giving it an expected quantum volume greater than 4,000,000.

The new system consists of perfect atomic clock qubits and random access all-to-all gate operations for efficient software compilation of applications. It will be first available via private beta, and then commercially available on Amazon Braket, where IonQ’s 11 qubit system is generally available for customers today, and Microsoft’s Azure Quantum. Pre-existing IonQ customers and partners, including 1QBit, Cambridge Quantum Computing, QC Ware, Zapata Computing and more are excited to experience the benefits of the new system, enabling them to drive towards the first wave of quantum applications.

The company’s trapped-ion quantum computers have a proven track record of outperforming all other available quantum hardware. With

There’s often a misconception that artificial intelligence (AI) is only applicable to businesses in the B2C space. It’s thought that since B2C companies have more customers, they have more data to leverage to make AI impactful. However, this couldn’t be further from the truth. AI is as relevant to a B2B company as it is to a B2C company. It’s important for every B2B company to evaluate the ways AI can help them produce better products, provide better services, and improve business processes. Here are just a few of the ways some B2B companies are using artificial intelligence today.

Better Products

One of the ways artificial intelligence supports B2B companies is by helping to create better products. In healthcare, AI is behind many innovative tools such as the CT scanner created by Siemens Healthineers that is

Trapped-ion quantum computing startup IonQ today announced the launch of its latest quantum computer, which features what IonQ calls “32 perfect qubits with low gate errors.”

Using IBM’s preferred quantum benchmark, IonQ expects to hit a quantum volume of 4,000,000. That’s a massive increase over the double-digit quantum volume numbers that IBM itself recently announced and it’s a pretty extraordinary claim on IonQ’s side, as this would make its system the most powerful quantum computer yet.

The (well-funded) company has never used this metric before. Through a spokesperson, IonQ also noted that it doesn’t necessarily think quantum volume is the best metric, but since the rest of the industry is using it, it decided to release this number. The company argues that its ability to achieve 99.9% fidelity between qubits has allowed it to achieve this breakthrough.

“In a single generation of hardware, we went from 11 to 32 qubits,

Kotlin is a statically typed, cross-platform, general-purpose coding language that features type inference. It can interoperate with JVM and Java based on the Java Class Library. However, the type inference also features a concise syntax. Let’s find out more about this programming language

Basically, Kotlin’s primary target is JVM but it may compile to native or JavaScript as well. JetBrains is responsible for the language development costs. On the other hand, Kotlin Foundation offers protection for the Kotlin trademark.

Officially, Kotlin has Google’s backing for mobile development on the mobile OS giant Android. After the introduction of Android Studio 3.0 in 2017, the language has become a good alternative to the regular Java compiler. With this compiler, you can go for either Java 8 or Java 6 compatible bytecode.

History

In 2011, JetBrains introduced Project Kotlin, which is a fresh coding language for the popular JVM. According to Dmitry Jemerov, … Read More
