News: World's densest, totally silent solid state drive

Quantum computers newsmaker Rigetti Computing has announced Quantum Cloud Services and, along with that, a $1 million contest prize for a conclusive demonstration of quantum advantage.
 Takers will be those who take to the idea of exploring quantum machines' potentials through the cloud. Rigetti's platform was also noted in the context of stepping into the "cloud establishment" arena. Forbes said, "CEO Chad Rigetti's challenger to the cloud establishment comes with a major technological ace: what the startup says is the first-ever cloud service powered by ."

The prize, meanwhile, will go to the first person or team using the QCS to demonstrate that a quantum machine is capable of showing what was called "quantum advantage." Competition details are said to follow at the end of next month.

A Big Data Center collaboration between computational scientists at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory's (Berkeley Lab) National Energy Research Scientific Computing Center (NERSC) and engineers at Intel and Cray has yielded another first in the quest to apply deep learning to data-intensive science: CosmoFlow, the first large-scale science application to use the TensorFlow framework on a CPU-based high performance computing platform with synchronous training. It is also the first to process three-dimensional (3-D) spatial data volumes at this scale, giving scientists an entirely new platform for gaining a deeper understanding of the universe.

Fast disappearing from data centers are power-hungry spinning hard disk drives that hum, buzz, run warm (or even hot), require fans and expensive cooling systems, and can crash unexpectedly.

Intel's newest solid state drive, the Intel SSD DC P4500, is about the size of an old-fashioned 12-inch ruler, and can store 32 terabytes. That's equivalent to triple the entire printed collection of the U.S. Library of Congress.

The new SSD is Intel's densest drive ever, and is built on Intel 3-D NAND technology, which stacks  atop each other in multiple extremely thin layers, instead of just one. Memory cells in the P4500 are stacked 64 layers deep.
