Paris, France – November 13, 2023 – Eviden, Atos Group’s business leading advanced computing today announces significant enhancements to its recently launched quantum offering, QaptivaTMincluding a new contract.
Eviden is strengthening its quantum capabilities and continuing its mission to make quantum computing accessible to everyone by introducing several new features to its Qaptiva offering. Qaptiva software now offers emulation capabilities of more than 100 qubits, two brand new tensor network QPU simulators, and a new framework for integrating high-performance computing (HPC) with quantum computing. In addition, a new consulting service is now available.
Development environment platform
Eviden also raises the bar in quantum emulation with its latest Qaptiva software upgrade. The latest version of Qaptiva 800’s software offers immediate benefits for validating algorithms through noise-free simulations and providing a virtual environment to test the performance of Quantum Processing Units (QPUs) with outstanding fidelity, all through noise simulations. As a result of Evidence’s R&D activities, completely new simulators have been introduced that significantly reduce computation time while providing an accuracy at least as good as today’s quantum processors.
Eviden goes a step further towards Fault-Tolerant Quantum Computation (FTQC) by introducing Q-Pragma, a framework that helps HPC centers use quantum algorithms and implement HPC-Quantum hybridization. This hardware-agnostic technology enables HPC applications to use quantum acceleration and effortlessly integrates existing C++ programs, streamlining workflow and increasing productivity. Q-Pragma also enables heterogeneous computing by allocating memory and scheduling workloads to different processors. It can be extended with Quantum Error Correction (QEC) modules.
The Qaptiva 800, formerly known as the Atos Quantum Learning Machine (QLM), can emulate over 100 qubits depending on the algorithm and emulator used. This improvement confirms the relevance of emulators for developing and testing different classes of algorithms.
The National Laboratory for Scientific Computing (LNCC) in Brazil has chosen to use the Evidence Quantum Computing appliance (QLM 38E) for its research in computer science. LNCC will develop solutions for complex problems in various domains with the appliance. With this new customer win, Eviden has expanded the Qaptiva appliance customer base to over 36 worldwide references, strengthening its customer portfolio and confirming its position as a trusted choice for companies worldwide.
Through HPCQS1 project, co-financed by EuroHPC JU, France and Germany, Eviden plays a crucial role in unlocking the potential of HPC and Quantum hybridization. The programming and emulation environments, which include Qaptiva, will be available in Germany through the Jülich Supercomputing Center (the Q-solid initiative) and in France through GENCI and CEA – the French Commission for Alternative Energies and Atomic Energy – (the HQI initiative).
In order to fully utilize the power of quantum computing, it is important to carefully select the right components, identify use cases and evaluate various criteria for implementing solutions. Eviden has launched a new consulting service supported by a team of quantum experts providing advice to various industries, universities and high-performance computing centers. They help create actionable strategies that enable the adoption of quantum computing, identify relevant use cases, and solve complex problems. The consulting services bring together a strong network of partners with specialized knowledge in various industry sectors, such as finance and energy. This consultancy is expanding in France, with an increased footprint in Brazil, Germany, India and Spain, as it looks to grow globally.
With its strong partnerships and joint go-to-market strategies, Eviden realizes its commitment to provide access to a true QPU and offer end-to-end solutions.
In France, Le Lab Quantique has launched the first Maison du Quantique, further highlighting the importance of quantum computing in the French ecosystem. Eviden is proud to be one of the founders of this project and is committed to creating new synergies that will accelerate the growth of quantum computing in France.
Dr. Cédric Bourrasset, Global Head of HPC-AI and Quantum Computing, Eviden, Atos Group said: “This new customer and portfolio development is a great marker of success, just a few months after the launch of our new Qaptiva offering. This shows that the market is ready to turn to the first quantum applications and to trust Eviden’s team and technologies. We look forward to supporting many new customers in their quantum journey with our technologies, services and ecosystem of partners.”
Bob Sorensen, principal analyst for Quantum Computing at Hyperion Research marked “There is a growing demand to integrate Quantum and HPC technology, as it has the potential to greatly increase computing power. This indicates a genuine interest in the potential benefits of quantum computing. I applaud Eviden, a leader in the field, for showing up their continued success in the industry at SC23. Their Qaptiva platform is designed to emulate hundreds of qubits, and Eviden has introduced a new framework that supports the optimization of HPC programs and the acceleration of classical supercomputers – both important areas of development.”
Qaptiva is a powerful quantum computing application development platform offered by Eviden, enriched with a software and hardware partner ecosystem. This platform is aimed at customers looking for solutions to develop quantum applications and run them as a service or on-premises. By leveraging Eviden’s significant experience in hybrid computing, Qaptiva enables companies, organizations and research centers globally to harness the potential of quantum computing and take application development to the next level to solve complex business and scientific challenges. With Qaptiva, they can access all the quantum technologies they need to program, optimize, compile, emulate or run code on a Quantum Processing Unit (QPU) and can quickly achieve tangible results without waiting for FTQC.
