Asterisk (*) Computing Community

Asterisk Computing Community

Welcome to our NEW JAAGNet Community for Asterisk Computing.

Asterisk computing covers many different aspects of computing, for example, the asterisk can be replaced with the following terms:

  • Cloud - transparently scalable Internet based services
  • Fog - dispersed compute power across multiple points of a network
  • Edge - compute capability as close as possible to the consumer
  • Accelerated - hardware and software techniques, FPGA, GPU, O/S bypass, SR-IOV
  • Super - current mindblowingly fast compute architecture for solving the world's bigest problems
  • Quantum - even more mind blowing new architecture based on "Quantum Physics" that will revolutionize the world of computing and the problems it can tackle.
  • Scale-Out - Transparantly increasing compute capability by horizontally adding similiar computing units.
  • Scale-Up - Transparantly increasing compute capability by adding more powerful compute capaility to the same unit.

Stung by high-profile data breaches and heightened scrutiny from regulators, banks and other financial services companies are making major investments in sophisticated cloud security infrastructure. The move allows them to operate in cloud environments and assure customers and enterprises that sensitive financial data can be stored and managed securely. 

Companies that have sensitive financial…

Quantum computing is based on quantum mechanics, which governs how nature works at the smallest scales. The smallest classical computing element is a bit, which can be either 0 or 1. The quantum equivalent is a qubit, which can also be 0 or 1 or in what's called a superposition — any combination of 0 and 1. Performing a calculation on two classical bits (which can be 00, 01, 10 and 11) requires four calculations. A quantum computer…

Weighing complex decisions on cloud adoption and how to make the most of it is a discussion more CIOs will face this new year -- and in the future.

An ever-growing number of enterprises plan to or are already exploring the seemingly boundless potential offered by the cloud. Yet this segment of digital transformation remains something of an open frontier waiting to be…

With so many other things going on in the world, it was easy to miss how far quantum technology evolved in 2020. Little more than a year ago it was still possible for serious writers in serious publications to doubt that quantum computers would ever take off commercially. Now the debate is more over how much can be done by a quantum computer and when, not…
