Get to know the world’s first full-stack, open cloud quantum computing ecosystem
Experience quantum impact – today
Quantum computing presents unprecedented possibilities to solve society’s most complex challenges. Microsoft is committed to responsibly turning these possibilities into reality – for the betterment of humanity and the planet.
Over decades of research and development, Microsoft has achieved advancements across every layer of the quantum stack – including software, applications, devices and controls – and is delivering true impact today through quantum-inspired classical computing.
The Microsoft approach to quantum
Microsoft takes a comprehensive approach to delivering all the technology needed to enable commercial impact with quantum – encompassing everything from development to deployment. This approach innovates in parallel at all layers of the computing stack, including controls, software and development tools and services. It also includes a major ongoing focus to develop the topological qubit to help make scalable, stable quantum computing a reality.
The Azure Quantum open cloud ecosystem
Find everything you need to accelerate your application development and quantum computing growth in a single place: including quantum software, hardware and solutions from Microsoft and partners, as well as learning resources for developers, researchers and students. Find pre-built optimisation solvers that borrow from quantum principles running on classical resources, and write quantum algorithms designed to run on quantum hardware.
Start using Azure Quantum
Bring quantum apps to life with the quantum development kit for the Q# quantum programming language and Azure Quantum. In this open-source kit, you’ll find tools to formulate and run optimisation problems on large-scale or hardware-accelerated Azure compute resources, as well as for developing durable quantum applications for quantum hardware.Get the quantum development kit
