Munich and Paris, March 18, 2021

Atos nowadays declared that it has delivered its Atos Quantum Learning Equipment (Atos QLM), the world’s best-executing commercially available quantum simulator, to the Leibniz Supercomputing Centre (LRZ), of the Bavarian Academy of Sciences and Humanities. The Atos QLM is mounted in the a short while ago opened LRZ Quantum Integration Centre (QIC), Bavaria’s preeminent computing facility. The centre was designed to bring useful quantum applications to the scientific community by advancing the convergence of quantum computing and supercomputing.

The LRZ is amongst the initial computing facilities worldwide to concentrate on the integration of quantum computing in an HPC environment with its Quantum Integration Centre. The hybrid quantum-HPC method exhibits important claims in proficiently employing today’s classical desktops to harness the ability of in close proximity to-expression quantum applications. Leveraging each the Atos QLM and its collaboration with essential players like Atos, the Finnish-German startup IQM and other companions, LRZ will be able to make quantum technologies available to far more buyers. By taking gain of present HPC infrastructures, this initiative will allow for them to discover and seize the possibilities produced possible by quantum computing inside a pair of many years.

“At the LRZ, we are a husband or wife for digitalization in science. We are expanding our portfolio by integrating services for quantum computing. This way we help earth-course scientists to uncover new strategies to resolving grand-problem scientific problems. Nevertheless, we are only at the commencing with this technology. At the LRZ Quantum Integration Centre, scientists will be able to study how to use it and get ready by themselves for the long term of quantum computing. The collaboration with Atos and the use of the Atos Quantum Learning Equipment are an critical constructing block in our Quantum Computing approach,” defined Prof. Dieter Kranzlmüller, Chairman of the Leibniz Supercomputing Centre.

“LRZ and Atos share a pretty pragmatic method to quantum computing that focuses on quantum-accelerated HPC, with the aim of delivering early strategic added benefits to buyers prior to we entirely enter the post-quantum era. The Atos QLM is a immediate extension of this method and we are honored to be a single of the initial hardware companions of the LRZ Quantum Integration Centre. It is a excellent project and marks the important contribution produced by LRZ to the quantum computing community,” stated Elie Girard, Atos CEO.

The LRZ Quantum Integration Centre supports the Munich Quantum Valley, a central factor of the Bavarian quantum initiative to drive quantum computing forward at a national and international stage.  The partnership involving Atos and LRZ is a testament to the ambition of the Bavarian authorities to grow to be an internationally competitive quantum place by incorporating international, major-edge knowledge, expertise and technologies. Matter to the acceptance of the condition parliament, the Cost-free Condition of Bavaria dedicated to offering a whole of three hundred million euros.
