Insider Brief

  • QMware and QuiX Quantum will collaborate to develop the a fully integrated, hybrid quantum-classical platform.
  • The companies will co-locate the hardware onsite and integrate different computing  paradigms.
  • According to the teams, new approach provides significant performance  improvements and cost savings over existing commercial hybrid quantum services.

PRESS RELEASE — QMware and QuiX Quantum will collaborate to develop the first fully integrated, hybrid quantum-classical platform in Enschede, the  Netherlands, where QuiX Quantum’s headquarters are located. The hybrid architecture integrates high performance computing (HPC) infrastructure with native quantum computing technology onsite for the  first time globally. The new data center is expected to be fully operational for commercial applications in  August 2023. 

QMware and QuiX Quantum will co-locate the hardware onsite and integrate different computing  paradigms (HPC and native quantum hardware) with shared memory access on the high-performance  computer under a unified Linux operating system. This new approach provides significant performance  improvements and cost savings over existing commercial hybrid quantum services. On the contrary,  vendors currently require web integrations on separate computational stacks to orchestrate processing  between quantum and classical hardware. 

Best-in-Breed support for large computational models and ML 

The hybrid architecture of QMware’s proprietary hard- and software platform enables classical and  native quantum hardware to be built and utilized side-by-side. For end customers, this unprecedented  deep integration enables the simultaneous access of both computing backends with exceptional  performance and lowest latency. The quantum technology by QuiX Quantum is designed to support large  computational models such as optimization and machine learning applications with millions of variables. 

QuiX Quantum’s Quantum Computer based on photonics is the ideal fit for data center integration as it  operates at room temperature and provides scalable quantum technology. QMware will use a  broadband, low-latency optical fiber connection to directly attach high-performance computing  infrastructure with simulated and native quantum hardware.  

“We believe that the Photonics Quantum Processing Units by QuiX Quantum, integrated into QMware’s  Hybrid Quantum High-Performance Computers, are one of the most promising technologies to provide commercially sustainable quantum computing advantage,” says George Gesek, Chief Technology Officer  and co-founder of QMware. “By integrating HPC infrastructure and QuiX Quantum’s native quantum  hardware at the deepest possible layer, we aim to provide commercial quantum advantage at scale. Our  clients will benefit from application-specific performance enhancements, resulting in data processing  speeds up to 10 times faster!” 

“We are excited to be working with QMware on this groundbreaking project,” says Dr.-Ing. Stefan  Hengesbach, CEO of QuiX Quantum. “At QuiX Quantum, we are fully committed to making native  quantum hardware accessible for early industrial applications. QuiX Quantum’s technologies make  

quantum hardware integration into existing data centers a reality today. Optimizing energy grids, supply  chains, or traffic routing, are just some of the examples that are under investigation in collaboration with  QMware.” 

Constantijn van Oranje, Special Envoy at Techleap: “I am excited to see European technology  companies such as QMware and QuiX Quantum paving the way in this key innovation sector. The  announcement of the first fully integrated Hybrid Quantum Computing Data Center in Enschede,  the Netherlands, is a testament to the talent, expertise, and dedication of the European  quantum community.” 

Ton van ‘t Noordende, Managing Director QDNL Participations: “The new data center in  Enschede highlights the expertise and efforts being invested in the field of quantum technology  in Europe. The shared memory structure between classical and quantum processing units  represents a remarkable technical achievement that will enable further scaling of quantum  computing for complex applications. QMware and QuiX Quantum are taking a pioneering role in  enabling scalable quantum applications for industry and science, which is truly exciting to see.” 

Markus Pflitsch, CEO and co-founder of QMware: “Our collaboration marks a significant  milestone for the quantum computing industry. The hybrid quantum computing data center  located in Enschede is a major step in the evolution of computing, as it seamlessly integrates  classical and quantum hardware at the deepest possible layer. This development is strategically  significant, as it unlocks the full potential of quantum computing applications in the future.”
