Munich and Paris, March 18, 2021

Atos now announced that it has sent its Atos Quantum Understanding Equipment (Atos QLM), the world’s optimum-accomplishing commercially accessible quantum simulator, to the Leibniz Supercomputing Centre (LRZ), of the Bavarian Academy of Sciences and Humanities. The Atos QLM is installed in the not too long ago opened LRZ Quantum Integration Centre (QIC), Bavaria’s preeminent computing facility. The middle was created to bring useful quantum applications to the scientific neighborhood by advancing the convergence of quantum computing and supercomputing.

The LRZ is amid the to start with computing centers around the globe to aim on the integration of quantum computing in an HPC surroundings with its Quantum Integration Centre. The hybrid quantum-HPC approach reveals substantial promises in effectively applying today’s classical pcs to harness the electric power of in the vicinity of-phrase quantum applications. Leveraging both the Atos QLM and its collaboration with important gamers like Atos, the Finnish-German startup IQM and other associates, LRZ will be capable to make quantum systems accessible to much more customers. By taking gain of existing HPC infrastructures, this initiative will enable them to investigate and seize the possibilities produced possible by quantum computing within a few of several years.

“At the LRZ, we are a companion for digitalization in science. We are expanding our portfolio by integrating companies for quantum computing. This way we empower planet-class scientists to discover new approaches to resolving grand-challenge scientific troubles. Having said that, we are only at the beginning with this know-how. At the LRZ Quantum Integration Centre, scientists will be capable to discover how to use it and put together on their own for the long run of quantum computing. The collaboration with Atos and the use of the Atos Quantum Understanding Equipment are an important creating block in our Quantum Computing strategy,” explained Prof. Dieter Kranzlmüller, Chairman of the Leibniz Supercomputing Centre.

“LRZ and Atos share a quite pragmatic approach to quantum computing that focuses on quantum-accelerated HPC, with the aim of providing early strategic gains to customers right before we thoroughly enter the post-quantum era. The Atos QLM is a immediate extension of this approach and we are honored to be just one of the to start with hardware associates of the LRZ Quantum Integration Centre. It is a great task and marks the substantial contribution produced by LRZ to the quantum computing neighborhood,” reported Elie Girard, Atos CEO.

The LRZ Quantum Integration Centre supports the Munich Quantum Valley, a central factor of the Bavarian quantum initiative to generate quantum computing forward at a countrywide and global degree.  The partnership in between Atos and LRZ is a testament to the ambition of the Bavarian authorities to grow to be an internationally aggressive quantum spot by incorporating global, primary-edge know-how, techniques and systems. Matter to the approval of the condition parliament, the Cost-free Condition of Bavaria committed to furnishing a overall of three hundred million euros.
