Imagination at work

Atos and IQM study finds 76% of global HPC data centers to use quantum computing by 2023

Munich (Germany), Paris (France) 19 November 2021

Atos and IQM currently announce the results from the very first worldwide IDC analyze on the current status and potential of quantum computing in large effectiveness computing (HPC). Commissioned by IQM and Atos, the analyze reveals that seventy six% of HPC details centers throughout the world program to use quantum computing by 2023, and that 71% program to shift to on-premises quantum computing by 2026. IQM is component of Atos Scaler, an accelerator software developing partnerships with the get started-up ecosystem.

One of the critical results from the analyze is that it is getting ever more challenging for people to get the optimum effectiveness out of large-effectiveness computing whilst making sure the two stability and resilience.

one hundred ten critical conclusion-makers from large-effectiveness computing (HPC) centers throughout the world have been surveyed [one]. For the very first time, the effects offer concrete insights into a know-how location that will transform Europe and the globe substantially.

Financial investment in quantum computing on the rise

Quantum computing is the quantity one know-how in Europe and amongst the best a few technologies of the best five hundred HPC details centers throughout the world. seventy six percent of HPC centers are previously using quantum computing or program to use them in the next two yrs. The envisioned gains of the introduction of quantum pcs are apparent for HPC details centers: the survey reveals that these are: tackling new complications this sort of as offer chain logistics or challenges related climate transform (forty five percent) and solving existing complications speedier (38 percent) – whilst at the exact same time reducing computing fees (forty two percent).

Growing complexity as an opportunity

Cloud is a critical component of this HPC architecture, mixing common elements with customized-designed infrastructure components. Primarily based on the survey responses, hybrid and cloud deployments are primarily crucial in the EMEA region. 50 percent state that a hybrid HPC architecture is best precedence, (North America forty six percent APAC 38 percent). However, there is a deficiency of expertise about how quantum computing will perform together with a classical HPC infrastructure. Hence, outsourcing operations and servicing with companions will continue with the raise in quantum computing.

A marketplace in transition

Building and tests authentic-globe use circumstances is critical to the potential achievement of quantum computing. The four most crucial use circumstances for quantum computing are at this time linked to the investigation of enormous quantities of details and solving industry-particular use circumstances. The best use circumstances recognized by the HPC centers interviewed are:

  • Searching databases (fifty nine percent)
  • Financial investment chance investigation (forty five percent)
  • Molecular modelling (41 percent)
  • Asset Administration (32 percent)

Dr. Jan Goetz, CEO and Co-Founder of IQM Quantum Desktops summarizes: “We perform with some of the leading HPC centers in the globe, and we planned this analyze to offer the quantum industry a thorough knowing of the state of quantum at HPC centers globally. The robust investments for on-premise quantum pcs, concentration on techniques gap and sustainability are very crucial results from this analyze, and it will assistance IQM, Atos and our ecosystem companions in developing new products and offerings”

Dr. Stefano Perini, IDC European Quantum Computing Practice Co-direct Spokesperson of IDC, provides: “Quantum computing has all the credentials to transform the way the two scientific and small business challenges will be dealt with. However, there is very little details on what are the current and potential adoption trends of this cutting-edge know-how by corporations all around the globe. The analyze sheds mild on how HPC centers are experimenting with quantum computing and how they’re scheduling to do it in the potential. By filling this gap, we have been ready to define the critical methods to undertake in buy for quantum computing to flourish and accomplish a sizeable impact over the next yrs.”

Udo Littke, Head of Atos Central Europe, summarizes: “There has in no way been this sort of a complete analyze of the chances of the quantum technologies for the supercomputing marketplace. Hence, we executed this investigation with each other with IDC and IQM to understand a lot more about the supercomputing marketplace in EMEA and the globe. The effects demonstrate that quantum computing is a lot more crucial in Europe than in the rest of the globe. Europe has a special ecosystem for quantum computing, which is now displaying robust growth. Especially now, it is crucial to perform with robust companions who have previously executed a variety of initiatives and use circumstances and convey the appropriate know-how.”

[one] The analyze “The State of Quantum Computing in Substantial Overall performance Computing (HPC)” reveals the strategic value of quantum computing. For the analyze, one hundred ten of the most crucial HPC centers throughout the world have been surveyed in August 2021. 27 percent of them occur from EMEA, 32 percent from North America, 41 percent from APAC.
