OVHcloud inaugurates quantum laptop and provides academic assist for the European quantum ecosytem


Europen cloud supplier OVHcloud recentlybrought collectively the European Quantum ecosystem in Croix France to inaugurate the commissioning of the primary Quantum laptop accessible from a European Cloud service supplier.

At a time when European’s nations specific a rising aspiration in spearheading innovation, regaining management over their future, preserving sovereignty and upholding their values, OVHcloud says it understands the significance of investing in state-of-the-art options to assist Europe’s strategical autonomy.

In presence of Sylvie Retailleau, Minister of Higher Education and Research, Marina Ferrari, Secretary of State for Digital Affairs, and Thomas Skordas, Deputy Director-General DG CNECT at European Commission, the occasion celebrated the commissioning of Quandela MosaiQ Quantum Computer at OVHcloud’s amenities hinting at what the way forward for innovation in Europe might seem like, leveraging skills and applied sciences accessible regionally.

Paving the way in which for the way forward for cloud computing with Quantum

Demonstrating dedication in direction of innovation, OVHcloud bought the Quandela Quantum laptop in March 2023, sending a transparent message of assist to the entire Quantum ecosystem via France’s “Choose French Tech” program. The Group is dedicated to growing and selling a strong ecosystem of gamers united by the identical values of innovation, knowledge safety and openness. The MosaiQ system was the primary Quandela laptop to ship from the manufacturing facility, was delivered to the datacenter on the finish of 2023 and has now been arrange and configured accordingly. Today, it is among the few Quantum computer systems at present accessible within the cloud.

Sylvie Retailleau, Minister of Higher Education and Research, mentioned: “Through the acquisition of the MosaiQ quantum computer developed by the French start-up Quandela, the French company OVHcloud illustrates the strengthening of our digital sovereignty. It embodies the dynamism of our quantum research ecosystem. OVHcloud’s approach is remarkable, at the cutting edge of technology and innovation, and will also benefit selected French higher education and research establishments to benefit from computing hours.”

The MosaiQ system is among the first of its variety and makes use of beams of lights due to photonics ideas to run quantum purposes. OVHcloud is now main the way in which for European organisations to spend money on Quantum know-how, which may be utilized in areas together with optimization, simulation and safety. The Group goals to make use of the Quantum compute energy for its inside analysis and growth efforts to advance new safety methods, take a look at new ideas and additional lay down the groundwork for tomorrow’s European applied sciences for use by industrial gamers. Quantum computing is anticipated to offer options to unsolvable issues within the fields of cryptography, simulation of latest medicines or advanced molecular techniques in addition to optimization of transport and logistics.

Marina Ferrari, Secretary of State for Digital Affairs, mentioned: “With the inauguration of this computer, quantum computing will be more accessible and closer: our businesses must seize MosaiQ to accelerate their calculations and exploit its full potential. It is thanks to the innovation and boldness of cloud providers such as OVHcloud and startups like Quandela that our country will be able to consolidate its position as European leader in quantum technologies in an increasingly competitive global ecosystem.”

Niccolo Somaschi, co-founder and CEO Quandela, mentioned: “We are extremely proud that the first quantum computer manufactured in our factory is now installed in one of OVHcloud datacenters and connected to their cloud. It’s a major step to develop use of our technologies within the European quantum and research communities. It confirms both our ambitions and our commitment to democratize access to quantum compute for the industry, research and the whole academic community in order to build a strong European ecosystem.”

Granting Universities entry to Quantum Computing via the Cloud

OVHcloud is proud to announce an academic program to grant choose college students from greater schooling establishments and universities, together with the members of the QuanTEdu-France consortium comparable to Telecom Paris. As a consequence, after reviewing their purposes, college students will get free entry, via the Cloud, to OVHcloud’s Quandela QPU. Students will get 80 hours of entry to the Group’s unmatched lineup of Quantum notebooks together with Alice & Bob, C12, Eviden, Pasqal and Quandela notebooks.

Through this new academic program, that was praised by Bettina Stark-Watzinger, German Federal Minister of Education and Research, the Group is actively contributing to the event of skills and skillsets at a European stage. It provides college students distinctive and groundbreaking know-how to assist develop European software program for brand spanking new use instances and new challenges.

Michel Paulin, CEO OVHcloud, mentioned: “We are convinced that Quantum is a technology for the future and we have shown unwavering support to ensure Europe doesn’t miss the next technological revolution. With the arrival of this first Quantum Computer in our datacenter we are pleased to make it accessible to students through the cloud, sending a clear signal of support to the broader ecosystem, playing our part in strengthening Europe’s strategic and technological autonomy.”
