IQM’s vision is that we are no where near the computational limits of our time. With our quantum solutions, we are bringing quantum-accelerated high-performance computing capability to supercomputing centers. This capability makes it possible for our customers to combine the best of both worlds, classical high-performance computing and quantum computing, in which certain computational tasks are specifically assigned to quantum processing units (QPUs), both technologies running in parallel. This combination will speed up overall computational performance where specific parts of exceedingly difficult computations are addressed by a QPU, exponentially accelerating those tasks.

In collaboration with Leibniz Supercomputing Centre, we are excited to present our latest whitepaper, which delves into the road ahead for integrating quantum acceleration into supercomputers. This paper explores the critical steps and decisions required to build the quantum future of high-performance computing, paving the way for important strides towards green computing.

Soon, all HPC centers will be Quantum accelerated – the time to act is now.


  • Time to output is too long
  • To find sustainable computing solutions
  • High capex requirements
  • Inadequate computing power for large research projects

Quantum technologies hold the promise of addressing key sustainability issues, including:

  • Reducing the energy consumption of data centers and servers that contribute significantly to the growing climate crisis.
  • Limiting the energy requirement for complex computations even as demand continues to rise in data-centric applications, AI, simulation, and more.
  • Accelerate the development of new innovations to solve global sustainability such as carbon capture and efficient battery breakthroughs.
  • Minimize quantum computing’s own potential climate and environmental impact, with technological breakthroughs.
