MCPRO Pills (XCVIII): Metaverse, Quantum Computing, Toshiba

The metaverse seems to want to dominate the tech conversation for years to come. And about what it is, the possibilities it has of becoming something real and what to expect in the short term, we talked to you a few days ago in our report “A metaverse to unite them all.”

Thus we begin some MCPRO Pills in which quantum computing has taken on a special role. Firstly, because IBM has presented a new 127-qubit Eagle processor and secondly, because, as we also told you, more and more researchers are convinced that it has become a threat to the security of cryptocurrencies.

Following the “fashion” of the last years, this week Toshiba has announced that it is divided into no less than three companies: energy, infrastructure and devices. We started!

A metaverse to bring them all together

From being on the lips of some passionate about new technologies, the “metaverse” has become the buzzword. And not so much because of the novelty of an idea that already has a few decades behind it, but because of the “sudden” voracity of some technology companies that are preparing to terminate the web as we know it and then build (and fight to control) this alternate reality.

Quantum already threatens your cryptocurrency portfolio

Quantum computing and cryptocurrencies, two of the most interesting technological phenomena of recent times, could go into direct collision in the next few years. New quantum computers, capable of accelerating the development of new drugs or revolutionizing the way we understand phenomena like climate change, could turn cryptographic problem solving into a game.

IBM introduces its 127-qubit Eagle quantum processor and details on IBM Quantum System Two

IBM has announced its Eagle quantum processor, with 127 qubits, and has shown the previous designs, in addition to giving some details, of what will be the company’s next quantum system: IBM Quantum System Two.

Toshiba will be divided into three independent companies

Toshiba will shortly be divided into three independent companies, for which it will create subsidiaries with its two main divisions. On the one hand, with its energy and infrastructure area, and on the other, with the area dedicated to devices and storage

Francisco Verdugo (VMware Senior Partner Solution Engineer): “Virtual desktops can be used at any time, place and device”

VMware and HPE have brought together their vast technological and business experience in a joint VDI solution to offer all the advantages of the VMware Horizon Virtual Desktops (VDI) platform on the technology base of HPE servers in GreenLake pay-per-use mode. We have interviewed Francisco Verdugo, VMware Senior Partner Solution Engineer to learn more about this interesting initiative.

Kyndril and Microsoft reach an agreement on cloud and digital transformation

Kyndryl, the managed services company that just started operating just a week ago as an independent company from IBM, has reached an agreement with Microsoft, with the cloud as the main player, to promote the advancement of digital transformation projects. The agreement will see the two companies jointly address both cloud migrations and digital transformation projects.

Technology drives “do from anywhere” thinking

Companies have proven to have the sufficient capacity to face extraordinary challenges and to be able to turn in a few days, with the support of their employees, clients and partners, all their activity to a totally digital and remote work model. For many of them, the arrival of the pandemic and the lockdowns meant accelerating their digital transformation plans.
