Oxford Quantum Circuits is setting up the first Quantum Computing-as-a-Service (QCaaS) in the United Kingdom. They will create a private cloud for strategic partners and customers who want to experiment with their quantum computer. The initial offering will be using their Sophia quantum computer which has four qubits, but OQC is working on more advanced machines which we expect to be also available on their service in the not too distant future. In addition, clients of the service will also be able to access Cambridge Quantum Computing’s Ironbridge quantum random number generation which produces verifiable quantum randomness for cybersecurity applications. The company is now accepting registrations of interest for those who wish to be included in the beta list of clients that can access OQC’s cloud service. For additional details about this service, you can view a news release posted on the OQC website here.
