Quandela updates its quantum computing cloud service


The company says that Quandela 2.0 offers significant enhancements to its previous release, and provides users with the most powerful platform for developing photonic quantum applications

Quandela, a quantum computing startup using photonic technology, has announced the release of the new version of its quantum computing cloud service, Quandela Cloud 2.0, which it says provides end users with the most powerful platform for developing photonic quantum applications.

The company initially launched Quandela Cloud in January 2023, and says it now comprises hundreds of corporate users, offering a comprehensive platform to discover, learn, test, and develop quantum solutions. Quandela adds that the platform gives users access to the most advanced quantum servers available at the company, easy-to-use software for generating and manipulating quantum circuits, and middleware for executing hybrid quantum-classical workflows in heterogeneous computing environments.

Quandela says that the update has multiple benefits for developers, researchers and quantum engineers, including significant improvements in circuit construction, compilation times, and memory consumption compared to the earlier release. Additionally, the company says that Perceval, the open-source framework to programme photonic quantum computers, provides developers with versatile and powerful user tools for mapping circuits to quantum hardware and executing them on simulators or actual QPUs. Meanwhile, the introduction of new application-centred SDKs and APIs aims to facilitate seamless integration into cloud system dataflow and hybrid computing with classical processors (CPU and GPU) in datacentre infrastructures.

Among the key enhancements in Quandela Cloud 2.0 that the company highlights are: Quantum Toolbox, a comprehensive suite including pre-optimised primitives tailored for specific applications, aiming to expedite time to production of quantum algorithms for industry-specific use cases; Exqalibur, a new emulator for photonic qubits that leverages the capabilities of powerful GPUs; an exclusive service offering premium users an intuitive reservation platform to secure QPU time at designated times; significant enhancements to the quantum computing hardware in the form of Altair, the latest 10-qubit quantum processor; and two patented error mitigation techniques built in to push further the fidelity and quantum gates speed.

According to Quandela, this release follows the successful launch of two quantum computing systems with cloud providers in Europe and North America. As the company continues on its path, it says it remains dedicated to timely deliveries and ongoing technical advancements.
