OQC Believes in a Brighter Future for All Made Possible by Quantum
Quantum computing is not only reshaping and transforming entire industries. It is a world-changing $1.3 trillion opportunity with the power to ignite and catalyse entirely new industries. Today, quantum computers are predominantly located in laboratories, making secure access the biggest barrier to wider business adoption of this groundbreaking technology. OQC Toshiko, an upgradeable 32-qubit platform, brings quantum computing into commercial data centres, providing secure and easy access for customers. It is especially important for customers who process sensitive data in sectors such as financial services, pharmaceuticals, energy, defence and public.
The introduction of quantum into data centres makes it possible to bring hybrid computing, integrated quantum and HPC to market. Oxford Quantum Circuits has achieved this by adopting Digital Fabric Interconnect, an advanced network infrastructure to enable secure, hybrid computing for customers. OQC is collaborating with leading global companies such as Equinix, NVIDIA, AWS and McKinsey to bring quantum from the lab to the enterprise. OQC Toshiko is available as a private preview today, with expanded availability in the public cloud and data centre fabric in the coming months. OQC believes in a brighter future for everyone made possible by quantum and is passionate about supporting diversity in technology. OQC Toshiko is named after Toshiko Yuasa, the first female Japanese physicist.
