Microsoft to Launch Quantum Computing Suite for Azure Cloud

Jeff Brody

Microsoft (NYSE: MSFT) has developed a suite of quantum computing services based on the Azure cloud platform.

The company said Monday it partnered with Honeywell (NYSE: HON), 1QBit, QCI and IonQ to assemble software, hardware and other pre-built tools into Azure Quantum.

A private preview of the offering will take place in the coming months.

Microsoft also offers an open-source Quantum Development Kit composed of tools, resources and learning tutorials for developers. The kit has reached 200K downloads to date, the company noted.

The announcement comes as the technology firm continues research into quantum applications such as the potential use of quantum-resistant cryptographic technology to help secure data centers.

Previously, the Case Western Reserve University and OTI Lumionics deployed Microsoft quantum offerings to support next-generation MRI scanning and materials engineering for OLED displays, respectively.
