Quantum-as-a-service company Terra Quantum has partnered with cloud services startup MegazoneCloud to build quantum computing algorithms and applications in the cloud.  

Together they aim to support quantum computing innovation via cloud-based services for public and private sectors in Asian markets. The initiatives the companies are targeting include smart city projects, financial services, manufacturing and weather forecasting.

“We are pleased and honored to partner with Terra Quantum, a leading quantum software provider, to develop ground-breaking solutions for Asian markets,” said MegazoneCloud CEO Max Lee.

“This synergistic collaboration empowers us to deliver cutting-edge, quantum-enhanced solutions that create significant impact and value for customers across industries.” 

South Korea has set strong ambitions to establish itself as a key player in global quantum innovation.

Last year, the Ministry of Science and ICT last year announced an investment of $2.3 billion in quantum science and technology, aiming to become the world’s fourth-largest powerhouse in the sector by 2035. This position is currently held by the U.K., with the U.S., Germany and China ranking higher.

“Our partnership with MegazoneCloud represents a pivotal step in our mission to democratize access to quantum computing on a global scale,” said Terra Quantum CEO and Founder Markus Pflitsch.

“Combining our expertise in quantum software development with MegazoneCloud’s cloud solutions, we are well-positioned to unlock value for private and public organizations in South Korea and Asia which marks a strategically important step in our efforts to further expand into the Asian market.” 

In February, the South Korean government announced plans to launch quantum cloud services in the second half of 2024 and commence urban air mobility test flights in August.
