Azure Quantum cloud service

Get innovative quantum hardware, software, and solutions in a single cloud service.

Accelerate quantum computing innovation via the cloud

Explore and prepare for scaled quantum computing. Use state-of-the-art cloud tools and learning resources to help you build and refine quantum algorithms. Gain access to a diverse portfolio of today’s quantum hardware.

Access a diverse portfolio of today’s quantum hardware to build toward the emergence of fault-tolerant quantum systems.

Get started with no installation and an open-source development kit that works with modern environments supporting Q#, Qiskit, and Cirq.

Understand the number of logical and physical qubits, as well as runtime, required to run quantum solutions on future scaled quantum machines.

Navigate complexity and develop new skills with world-class onboarding and education resources including Microsoft Learn, Quantum katas tutorials, industry case studies, and a university curriculum.

Estimate resources and refine quantum solutions

Use the Azure Quantum resource estimator tool to estimate the number of logical and physical qubits and runtime required to execute quantum applications on future-scaled quantum computers. Determine the number of qubits needed for a quantum solution and evaluate the differences across qubit technologies. Prepare and refine quantum solutions to run on future-scaled quantum machines.

Take advantage of integrated hybrid quantum computing

Mix classical and quantum computation to reveal new hybrid algorithms such as adaptive phase estimation. Build algorithms for classical computation, and then iterate and adapt while physical qubits are coherent.

Get started with an Azure free account


Start free. Get a USD$200 credit to use within 30 days. While you have your credit, get free amounts of many of our most popular services, plus free amounts of 55+ other services that are always free.


After your credit, move to pay as you go to keep building with the same free services. Pay only if you use more than your free monthly amounts.


After 12 months, you'll keep getting 55+ always-free services—and still pay only for what you use beyond your free monthly amounts.
