According to the company, OQC will install quantum computing hardware on the TY11 and leverage Equinix Fabric, Equinix’s on-demand interconnect solution, enabling businesses and organizations around the world to start quantum-as-a. -service on Equinix’s global platform by the end of 2023. I plan to make it available for IT.
Equinix Fabric is an on-demand interconnect solution based on a resilient, high-bandwidth global backbone. Customers can quickly create enterprise workloads and private connections whether they are in a private data center, IBX or one of the major cloud service providers. It also provides customers with superior throughput performance and low latency, helping customers move data efficiently, the company said.
Companies connected to the Equinix framework can access quantum computing as easily as on-premises. It also connects directly to QCaaS within its own digital infrastructure, making it safer and easier to experience and test breakthrough technologies. Demand from organizations is expected to increase as it supports a range of sectors from drug discovery and development to risk management, finance and advanced manufacturing.
“As customers seek out more innovative solutions, quantum computing has the potential to change the way business problems are solved today and tomorrow,” said Arun Dev, global head of digital interconnects, Equinix. and OQC’s quantum computing technology allow us to better meet our expectations. promise to support innovation.
“IDC predicts that by 2026, 95% of enterprises will invest in computing technologies that generate faster insights from complex datasets and differentiated business outcomes,” said Andrew Buss, senior research director at IDC. . the interconnected infrastructure will reduce barriers to cost, technology, and integration complexity, and open quantum technologies to more companies to test and use. »
Dr Ilana Wisby, CEO of OQC, said: “The world has been waiting for quantum computers to advance to the point where they could change our lives. This is one step closer,” he said.
