The introduction of the first market-ready quantum computers that are faster, more efficient, and safer than conventional ones is imminent. With Novarion’s hybrid quantum computers, the quantum simulator developed by QMware, and Terra Quantum’s algorithm expertise, it is already possible today to develop quantum computing software and test its effectiveness and efficiency. The companies have just launched their first Hybrid Cloud Data Center Alpha. According to the companies, this means that an industrially productive hybrid quantum computing cloud service is available for the first time.
This service combines classic high-performance computing (HPC) and quantum computing for today’s industrial use. This is possible because QMware enables the use of quantum algorithms in classic HPC applications with the help of virtual quantum processors. This approach promises a seamless transition from classical to quantum systems.
Basiq is the software development kit (SDK) developed by QMware that turns any classical computer into a quantum computer already today. It allows to translate and process quantum algorithms by means of logical building blocks (gates) in a way that is understandable for the computer. The input of these algorithms is easily done using a Jupyter notebook, which is well known to developers, and can be done using Python or C++. Furthermore, basiq is not limited to quantum algorithms, but can be extended and combined with classical algorithms to achieve optimal performance. In addition, a quantum algorithm library supports developers in easily applying well-known quantum algorithms such as Grover or Shor.
