NSF Issues DCL on Supplemental Funding Access to Cloud-based Quantum Computing

June 13, 2022

Looking for more access to quantum computing resources? The National Sciences Foundation (NSF) recently reiterated its support for supplemental funding for access to cloud-based quantum computing resources via Amazon, IBM, and Microsoft. The latest Dear Colleague Letter (DCL) on the topic is very similar to one issued in 2020, which initiated the program. Reprinted below... Read more…

As LUMI Launches, a Look at the State of EuroHPC

June 13, 2022

Today, the LUMI pre-exascale supercomputer was inaugurated in Kajaani, Finland. LUMI—which currently weighs in around 152 Linpack petaflops, but is expected to soon exceed 375—represents the largest success thus far of the EuroHPC Joint Undertaking, Europe’s concerted supercomputing play. LUMI marks the beginning of the end for the first phase of EuroHPC, but the... Read more…
