Azure Quantum

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
