D-Wave announces the launch of first Advantage Quantum Computer built for business


D-Wave Systems Inc., s the world’s first commercial supplier of quantum computers and a leader in quantum computing systems, software, and services announce the general availability of its next-generation quantum computing platform, integrating new hardware, software, and tools to allow and quicken the delivery of in-production quantum computing applications.

The platform encompasses the Advantage quantum system, with more than 5000 qubits and 15-way qubit connectivity, moreover to an expanded hybrid solver service that can run difficulty with up to one million variables. The union of the computing power of Advantage and the scale to label real-world problems with the hybrid solver service in Leap permits businesses to real-time, run performant, hybrid quantum applications for the first time.

The mission of D-Wave is to unlock the power of quantum computing for the world. They do this by bringing customer value with practical quantum applications for difficulties as diverse as logistics, drug discovery, artificial intelligence, materials sciences, cybersecurity, fault detection, and financial modelling.

These systems are being used by some of the world’s most advanced organizations, inclusive of  NEC, Los Alamos National Laboratory, USRA, Volkswagen, DENSO, Lockheed Martin, USC, and Oak Ridge National Laboratory. The new system will be made accessible to business customers over the Internet via the Leap quantum cloud service.

The D-Wave Launch program gives support to recognize the best applications and to translate business difficulties into hybrid quantum applications. The additional support helps customers advance designing, building, and running their most dominant and complex applications while delivering quantum acceleration and performance.

The company also declares a new hybrid solver called discrete quadratic model (DQM) solver which provides developers and businesses with the capability to apply the benefits of hybrid quantum computing to new problem classes. It will be normally available on October 8.

The Advantage quantum computer and the Leap quantum cloud service were inclusive of new topology, increased qubit count, greater performance and problem size, expansion of hybrid software & tools in Leap, flexible access, and ongoing releases.

Alan Baratz, CEO of D-Wave stated that the general availability of Advantage delivers the first quantum system built specifically for business, and marks the expansion into production scale commercial applications and new problem types with our hybrid solver services. He is incredibly proud of the team and the customers and partners who have cooperated with them to build hundreds of early applications and who were now putting applications into production.
