Azure Quantum: discovering Microsoft’s quantum computing platform

Quantum computing

Develop quantum solutions with a content delivery network that ensures security

Azure Quantum, the world’s first full-stack public cloud ecosystem for quantum solutions, is now in public preview. Developers, researchers, systems integrators, and customers can use it to learn about quantum computing. They can also build solutions based on the latest innovations, using familiar tools in a trusted public cloud.

We can use quantum computing to solve problems that involve examining a large number of possibilities. Quantum computing allows us to find an optimal and efficient solution. Examples of this are studies related to climate change, transport optimisation, chemistry or finance. Quantum computing is also being used for the fight against cancer. As we can see, there are many sectors which already benefit from the potential of quantum computing.

With Azure Quantum and its quantum development kit, we have a unified set of solutions. Azure Quantum can help you to learn, build and deploy impactful solutions at scale. This helps you harness quantum computing and benefit from the latest innovations.

Building a scalable quantum system

Operation and control

We can use the runtime layer, which is a quantum computer’s firmware and operating system. We use this layer to execute a quantum algorithm while maintaining the machine’s state. It operates the control system in a parallel real-time environment, and communicates to the outside world.

Devices and materials

Microsoft has specialized labs worldwide that they use to fabricate quantum devices, which operate at temperatures almost 200 times colder than the farthest reaches of outer space. To achieve a truly scalable quantum system, Microsoft uses raw materials to make topological quantum devices, in the form of special nanowires. Microsfot uses theese nanowires to make qubits and to form atomically thin conductive layers with exotic topological properties using integrated circuit manufacturing techniques.

Collaborate with innovators and developers

Azure Quantum allows you to collaborate with world-leading experts in Microsoft’s community of quantum innovators. Microsoft uses an open-source Quantum Development Kit with a programming language (Q# quantum) conceived to protect development investments by proactively anticipating and integrating with quantum systems advances. Moreover, Microsoft’s new Quantum Intermediate Representation is a common open-source interface between languages and target quantum computation platforms.

There is a good number of developers that are already contributing to the growth of the quantum community. Microsoft’s Quantum Lab, at the University of Sydney, has already made some breakthroughs in qubit control technology that allow us to scale beyond the physical limitations of current conventional systems. This is just an example of advancements across the stack that are bringing the promise of quantum to our world, right now.

Azure Quantum solution partners

As you start on your quantum journey, you can explore at your own pace, and your data will be safe in a trusted public cloud. You can pay as you go, and scale when you are ready, as well as having the flexibility to choose from self-service development or tailored development services with the Enterprise Acceleration Program.

neuroons is an official Azure partner. We are specialized to help you create the solutions you need for your business.
