Munich (Germany), Paris (France) 19 November 2021

Atos and IQM these days announce the results from the first world IDC examine on the existing standing and long term of quantum computing in high efficiency computing (HPC). Commissioned by IQM and Atos, the examine reveals that seventy six% of HPC data centers around the globe approach to use quantum computing by 2023, and that seventy one% approach to move to on-premises quantum computing by 2026. IQM is portion of Atos Scaler, an accelerator application building partnerships with the start-up ecosystem.

1 of the key results from the examine is that it is getting to be significantly challenging for customers to get the optimum efficiency out of high-efficiency computing even though ensuring the two security and resilience.

one hundred ten key choice-makers from high-efficiency computing (HPC) centers around the globe were being surveyed [one]. For the first time, the effects offer concrete insights into a engineering area that will adjust Europe and the environment appreciably.

Financial commitment in quantum computing on the increase

Quantum computing is the selection a person engineering in Europe and between the top a few technologies of the top 500 HPC data centers around the globe. seventy six p.c of HPC centers are by now applying quantum computing or approach to use them in the upcoming two years. The anticipated positive aspects of the introduction of quantum pcs are clear for HPC data centers: the study reveals that these are: tackling new issues such as supply chain logistics or problems associated local weather adjust (45 p.c) and resolving current issues a lot quicker (38 p.c) – even though at the identical time reducing computing charges (forty two p.c).

Escalating complexity as an prospect

Cloud is a key portion of this HPC architecture, mixing standard components with personalized-produced infrastructure factors. Primarily based on the study responses, hybrid and cloud deployments are particularly critical in the EMEA location. fifty p.c state that a hybrid HPC architecture is top precedence, (North The united states 46 p.c APAC 38 p.c). Nonetheless, there is a absence of information about how quantum computing will get the job done along with a classical HPC infrastructure. Therefore, outsourcing functions and upkeep with partners will go on with the improve in quantum computing.

A current market in transition

Building and screening real-environment use circumstances is critical to the long term results of quantum computing. The 4 most critical use circumstances for quantum computing are presently linked to the assessment of substantial amounts of data and resolving industry-specific use circumstances. The top use circumstances identified by the HPC centers interviewed are:

  • Hunting databases (fifty nine p.c)
  • Financial commitment chance assessment (45 p.c)
  • Molecular modelling (forty one p.c)
  • Asset Administration (32 p.c)

Dr. Jan Goetz, CEO and Co-Founder of IQM Quantum Desktops summarizes: “We get the job done with some of the foremost HPC centers in the environment, and we planned this examine to offer the quantum industry with a complete being familiar with of the state of quantum at HPC centers globally. The sturdy investments for on-premise quantum pcs, focus on techniques gap and sustainability are really critical results from this examine, and it will assist IQM, Atos and our ecosystem partners in building new solutions and offerings”

Dr. Stefano Perini, IDC European Quantum Computing Observe Co-direct Spokesperson of IDC, adds: “Quantum computing has all the qualifications to adjust the way the two scientific and company problems will be tackled. Nonetheless, there is very little data on what are the existing and long term adoption developments of this cutting-edge engineering by companies around the environment. The examine sheds mild on how HPC centers are experimenting with quantum computing and how they’re preparing to do it in the long term. By filling this gap, we have been ready to determine the key methods to undertake in buy for quantum computing to flourish and realize a sizeable affect more than the upcoming years.”

Udo Littke, Head of Atos Central Europe, summarizes: “There has never ever been such a complete examine of the alternatives of the quantum technologies for the supercomputing current market. Therefore, we carried out this assessment together with IDC and IQM to discover far more about the supercomputing current market in EMEA and the environment. The effects clearly show that quantum computing is far more critical in Europe than in the relaxation of the environment. Europe has a exceptional ecosystem for quantum computing, which is now exhibiting sturdy development. Primarily now, it is critical to get the job done with sturdy partners who have by now executed different assignments and use circumstances and deliver the applicable know-how.”

[one] The examine “The Condition of Quantum Computing in Significant General performance Computing (HPC)” reveals the strategic relevance of quantum computing. For the examine, one hundred ten of the most critical HPC centers around the globe were being surveyed in August 2021. 27 p.c of them arrive from EMEA, 32 p.c from North The united states, forty one p.c from APAC.
