Rigetti Launches the Public Beta of Its Quantum Cloud Services


Rigetti Computing, a start-up in the quantum computing space, has announced the public beta of its Quantum Cloud Services (QCS) platform. This will give developers access to their quantum processors, as well as all the classical computing resources necessary to build and test quantum algorithms on this hybrid platform. Users will also get $5,000 in credits toward running their programs on the platform that consists of classical computing resources along with Rigetti’s quantum chips. These include two of its latest Aspen quantum processors.

Users will need to book time using the service’s online booking system to get a chance to run their algorithms on those chips.

Rigetti’s Quantum Machine Image, which features all of the company’s tools for building quantum algorithms, is the core of this user experience. This image runs on a regular server in Rigetti’s cloud, and is tightly coupled with the company’s quantum computing resources which include its Forest SDK and a simulator for testing code.

Developers also get access to the first set of quantum applications written by various Rigetti partners. One brand is Zapata Computing, specializing in algorithms for quantum computing. Those applications range from a tool for compressing quantum data to QuantumFreeze to some basic ML applications.
