A new data center aims to fully integrate high-performance computing (HPC) infrastructure with native quantum computing technology onsite for the first time globally.

Quantum cloud company QMware plans to integrate classical HPC hardware with QuiX Quantum’s photonic-based quantum computers via shared memory access, using QMware’s proprietary software.

The companies say integrating the two types of hardware this way could increase processing power tenfold and improve the accuracy of results. Current commercial hybrid quantum services require web integrations that coordinate processing between quantum and classical hardware, which introduces inefficiencies.

QuiX Quantum’s quantum computing technology is designed to support large computational models such as optimization and machine learning applications with millions of variables. Industry use cases include optimization applications such as route planning and payload optimization in logistics or aerospace, and collateral portfolio and risk control in finance.

The facility will be located in Enschede, the Netherlands, and the companies plan for it to be operational in August.

“We believe that the photonics quantum processing units by QuiX Quantum, integrated into QMware’s hybrid quantum high-performance computers, are one of the most promising technologies to provide commercially sustainable quantum computing advantage,” said QMware chief technology officer and co-founder George Gesek.

“By integrating HPC infrastructure and QuiX Quantum's native quantum hardware at the deepest possible layer, we aim to provide commercial quantum advantage at scale. Our clients will benefit from application-specific performance enhancements, resulting in data processing speeds up to 10 times faster.”

QuiX Quantum CEO Stefan Hengesbach added: “At QuiX Quantum, we are fully committed to making native quantum hardware accessible for early industrial applications. QuiX Quantum’s technologies make quantum hardware integration into existing data centers a reality today. Optimizing energy grids, supply chains or traffic routing, are just some of the examples that are under investigation in collaboration with QMware.”
