Azure Quantum Is Now in Public Preview
(Cloudblogs.Microsoft) Azure Quantum, the world’s first full-stack, public cloud ecosystem for quantum solutions, is now open for business. Developers, researchers, systems integrators, and customers can use it to learn and build solutions based on the latest innovations—using familiar tools in the most trusted public cloud.
The unified Azure Quantum ecosystem will accelerate clients’ R&D with access to diverse quantum software and hardware solutions, a network of leading quantum researchers and developers, a robust resource library, and flexible self-service or tailored development programs for customers and systems integrators.
Users will be able to collaborate with world-leading experts in our vibrant community of quantum innovators. The open-source Quantum Development Kit (QDK) with the Q# quantum programming language protects your development investments by proactively anticipating and integrating with advances in quantum systems. And Microsoft’s new Quantum Intermediate Representation (QIR) is a common open-source interface between languages and target quantum computation platforms.
New users can tap into our robust resource library of learning materials and samples to grow your skills in quantum computing and optimization. Microsoft Learn teaches fundamental quantum concepts, Katas teach quantum programming in self-paced tutorials, and the samples demonstrate how quantum algorithms can be used for a variety of quantum computing tasks.
