Using iter8 and Kiali to evolve your cloud applications while gaining insights into their behavior

IBM Research has partnered with Red Hat to bring iter8 into Kiali. Iter8 lets developers automate the progressive rollout of new microservice versions. From Kiali, developers can launch these rollouts interactively, watch their progress while iter8 shifts user traffic to the best microservice version, gain real-time insights into how competing versions (two or more) perform, and uncover trends on service metrics across versions.

Rethinking quantum systems for faster, more efficient computation

As we looked closer at the kinds of jobs our systems execute, we noticed a richer structure of quantum-classical interactions including multiple domains of latency. These domains include real-time computation, where calculations must complete within the coherence time of the qubits, and near-time computation, which tolerates larger latency but which should be more generic. The constraints of these two domains are sufficiently different that they demand distinct solutions.
