Dell Technologies Testing Hybrid Emulation Platform for Quantum Computing

Dell Technologies said it has tested a hybrid emulation platform that can allow developers to run quantum applications on traditional infrastructure.

In a blog post, Dell Technologies CTO John Roese described the emulation platform, which uses the Dell EMC PowerEdge R740xd and IBM’s Qiskit Runtime, an open-source container service for quantum computers.

With technology teams exploring quantum computing for upcoming operations, Roese said simulators and emulators will be needed. Dell Technologies is betting that the quantum computer will not replace traditional computing. Access to quantum and classical computing will most likely be through the cloud, he added.

For developers, the gain is being able to use the Dell-IBM emulation platform to test applications, algorithms and other use cases. Details of Dell Technologies’ hybrid emulation platform are posted on Github.

Key points include:

  • The hybrid emulation platform performs classical and quantum processing on cloud-native platforms like Kubernetes. Previously, developers had to submit data and workloads for processing through the cloud.
  • Each quantum circuit no longer needs to be executed and queued separately.
  • Workloads can be performed on-site.
  • The hybrid approach can save money by giving developers choices to optimize costs.
