PRESS RELEASE — IQM Quantum Computers (IQM), a global leader in building quantum computers, announced a collaboration and showcase of a joint demo of quantum computing and high-performance computing (HPC) integration at ISC High Performance 2024, the annual international supercomputing conference in Hamburg, with Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE), the global edge-to-cloud company.

The collaboration lays the groundwork for development of future integrated offerings between the two companies. The demos developed in a joint effort of Hewlett Packard Labs, the central research community of HPE, and IQM teams will take place in both IQM’s booth in L39 and HPE’s booth in C10 and will demonstrate capability and direction towards an integrated hybrid quantum computing and high-performance computing solution.

This will be a hybrid solution demonstration with classical and quantum hardware running integration software to make the best use of quantum computing capabilities in conjunction with classical HPC capacity.

In the future of high-performance computing, quantum computing will play a crucial role, and despite its early stages of development, significant strides have been made, and has the potential to solve problems than classical supercomputers alone.

Over the past couple of years, IQM has been at the forefront of initiatives, offering turn-key hardware solutions for HPC centre deployment and preparing HPC centres to become quantum-ready. In Germany, IQM will provide a quantum system to be integrated into a HPC supercomputer at the Leibniz Supercomputing Centre (LRZ), one of Germany’s three national supercomputing centres.

Dr. Peter Eder, Head of Strategic Partnerships at IQM Quantum Computers, said: “The joint demo with HPE not only demonstrates our combined technical expertise but also shows the integration of quantum computing and HPC resources has several potential benefits, such as maximum computational power, leveraging the strengths of both technologies.”

“By working together, Hewlett Packard Labs and IQM have demonstrated that hybrid quantum classical platforms are ready for HPC center users to explore, create, and test advanced algorithms, develop internal resource capability, and generate intellectual property,” said Kirk Bresniker, HPE Fellow, Vice President, Chief Architect at Hewlett Packard Labs, Hewlett Packard Enterprise.

Engineering efforts on how quantum computing and HPC can best work have lagged behind hardware and algorithm development. Filling this integration gap is key to developing hybrid quantum/classical solutions, and so this aspect of further product co-developments are ongoing.
