Some public cloud platform operators have recently launched QaaS (Quantum as a Service) business, seeking synergies between software and hardware suppliers and enterprise users - a move which will help explore potential applications and accelerate the integration of new and old computing technologies, according to Digitimes Research.
Major public cloud service providers, including IBM, Microsoft and AWS (Amazon Web Services), have successfully launched QaaS, allowing enterprise users to access quantum computing resources on public cloud platforms.
This business model allows quantum computing technology providers to solicit more customers and meets the needs of enterprise users for high-speeding computing services, which is favorable to the quantum computing industry's development.
The growing deployments of QaaS services and related ecosystems by these public cloud service providers also mean that commercialization of quantum computing has arrived, according to Digitimes Research.
As a feasible solution for accelerated data computing in the post-Moore's Law era, quantum computing is not replacing traditional computing processes but is optimizing the high-speed computing performance of the old and new computing technologies, Digitimes Research notes.
While most quantum computers are still being operated in highly constrained environments, the availability of QaaS in the form of remote access has helped alleviate the scarcity of quantum computing resources.
