Google advises Cloud Engine customers to build redundancy in their cloud apps-- its European Google Compute Engine (GCE) datacentre got hit by not one, not two, but four consecutive lightning strikes, leading to a major power outage.

Lightning sstrike The incident caused permanent "persistent disk" (a type of virtual machine instance storage GCE hosts) data loss in the europe-west-b zone, located in St Ghislain, Belgium.

Google says on 13 August 5% of "standard persistent disks" in the zone started returning I/O failures and snapshot creation errors, a total reduced to "less than 0.000001% of the space of allocated persistent disks" by 17 August.

Shining a Light in Quantum Computing

Researchers from the University of Bristol and Nippon Telegraph and Telephone (NTT) announce a light-based breakthrough in quantum computing-- an optical chip able to "process photons in infinite number of ways."

Optical quantum chipThe optical chip brings together a number of quantum experiments, and will even "realise a plethora of future protocols that have not even been conceived yet." It also allows for faster and easier testing of quantum science theories and quantum computing experiments.

How so? Typical quantum science experiments involve working with "notoriously fragile" systems demanding months to build. The optical chip simplifies such work by being easily reprogrammable, allowing scientists to perform nothing less than "a year's worth of experiments in a matter of hours."

Intel says the future is all about the "growing personalisation of computing" as it shows off RealSense depth-sensing cameras, new storage technology, IoT hardware and software, and wearable devices at Intel Developer Forum (IDF) 2015.

IDF 2015"Computers are on our desks, in our bags, in our clothes, in our homes and on our bodies," Intel CEO Brian Krzanich states at the IDF keynote. "They are not only growing smarter and more connected, but gaining senses and becoming an extension of ourselves."

The first technology seen on stage is RealSense, the Chipzilla take on depth-sensing cameras. The company wants to push the technology further in the market, providing support not only to developers working on Windows and Android but also Mac OS X, ROS, Linus, Scratch, Unity, XSplit, OBS, Structure SDK, OSVR and Unreal Engine 4. A number of vendors announced RealSense-based products, including Razer, XSplit and Savioke.
