Async calculation on remote devices

Are there any plans to integrate some kind of async job submissions, which are so inherent to the qiskit logic ? We recently sat up a framework to submit jobs to remote devices. However, pennylane seems to very strongly push for connections that must not time out, computers that never close etc. The question is mostly motivated by the API here. An earlier version was rougly implemented here. But the missing async support was one of the main reasons that the public development mostly stopped.

Hey @fretchen! Welcome back :rocket:

Interesting! I’m not personally aware of anything in the pipeline akin to what you’re asking about. In that case, it would be a good idea to make a feature request to the pennylane-qiskit plugin repo :slight_smile:

Thanks a lot for the quick feedback. I posted it here. I did not post it into pennylane-qiskit as I do not see any reason to involve qiskit into the design choices personally…
