Frequently asked questions about Azure Quantum
Detailed Azure Quantum pricing information can be found on our Azure pricing page.
Quantum computing harnesses quantum mechanics to enable computation. Optimization is a class of computing problems that are primary candidates for running on quantum computers in the future, providing a quantum advantage over classical solutions. We can already accelerate optimization problems using Azure Quantum solvers that run on classical hardware in Azure today faster than many other classical optimization techniques. Learn more.
