PRESS RELEASE — Rigetti Computing, a pioneer in full-stack quantum computing, today announced a collaboration with Microsoft to provide Rigetti quantum computers over the cloud to users of Microsoft’s Azure Quantum service. When the Rigetti system becomes available, it will be the largest quantum computer accessible on Azure Quantum. The two companies expect the integration to be completed and available to users in the first quarter of 2022.

Rigetti quantum computers use superconducting qubits, a technology approach shown to have faster execution times and greater scaling than other commercially available quantum computing technologies. These performance characteristics position Rigetti quantum computers to potentially help solve a broad range of valuable problems in areas like machine learning, drug discovery, clean energy, logistics optimization, and financial simulations.

“We’re excited to bring the speed and scale of Rigetti quantum computers to the Azure Quantum marketplace,” said Taryn Naidu, chief operating officer of Rigetti. “Microsoft has fostered an impressive community of quantum developers and researchers. Together, we can power a new generation of algorithms that chart the path toward quantum advantage.“

“Rigetti’s scalable approach to superconducting quantum computers will create new opportunities for the Azure Quantum development community,” said Krysta Svore, General Manager of Microsoft Quantum. “We’re working closely with Rigetti to deliver hybrid quantum-classical computing with the performance to tackle problems that were previously out of reach.”

Azure Quantum developers will be able to program Rigetti computers using popular quantum software frameworks. This week at Q2B 2021 — the quantum computing industry’s premier conference — Rigetti is demonstrating a quantum chemistry algorithm using QIR, Microsoft’s quantum intermediate representation, running on a Rigetti quantum computer over the cloud. Rigetti and Microsoft are collaborating, as part of the QIR Alliance, toward a goal of enabling interoperability within the quantum ecosystem and reducing development efforts from all parties.
