Experience quantum impact today on Azure
Build quantum solutions today
Quantum computing makes use of wave-like properties of nature to encode information in qubits that can process highly complex calculations more quickly. Where current computers would require billions of years to solve some of the world’s most challenging problems, a scaled quantum computer may find a solution in weeks, days or hours.
Azure Quantum is a one-stop-shop that gives you the freedom to create your own path to scalable quantum computing. Through a familiar Azure environment, you’ll have access to all the tools and resources you need to quickly ramp up and have impact today, while building for the future.
An open ecosystem, enabling you to access diverse quantum software, hardware and solutions from Microsoft and our partners
A trusted, scalable and secure platform that will continue to adapt to our rapidly evolving quantum future
An ability to have quantum impact today with pre-built solutions that run on classical computers (we refer to as quantum-inspired solutions)
A familiar environment with Azure to help you quickly ramp up and have impact today while building for the future

Scott Genin, Head of Materials Discovery, OTI Lumionics
"In the field of computational chemistry, high accuracy property prediction is considered to be very difficult... Running our quantum computing methods with Azure Quantum optimization solutions, we are getting results that are more accurate than other algorithms."
Mark Griswold, PhD, Professor, Radiology, Case Western Reserve University
"Microsoft is providing optimized quantum inspired algorithms to really solve our hard problems, using them to make MRI faster, cheaper, and more efficient to help people all over the world with this technology."
Sriram Krishnamoorthy, Systems Software and Applications Team Lead, PNNL
"Microsoft Quantum Development Kit definitely makes it much easier to go from the chemistry product specification to the output that we care about."
John Haley, CEO, Willis Towers Watson
"By focusing on how we would model the problems on quantum computers… we are able to work with Microsoft to redefine the problems and speed up our solutions on existing hardware."
Patrick Ellis, Manager, Ford Research
"Ford brings the expertise from the problem areas and where the value really is for us, and Microsoft brings the Quantum expertise and the team together to help formulate a solution."
