Amazon Rolls Out Quantum-Computing Service

2:40 PM ET

Amazon.com's cloud-services division is offering select enterprise customers the ability to experiment with early-stage quantum-computing services over the cloud, following other companies racing to commercialize the emerging technology.

Amazon Web Services Inc. said the new service, Amazon Braket, is "in preview" as of Monday. The platform lets enterprise customers explore how they could benefit from quantum computers by developing and testing quantum algorithms in simulations. Clients will also have access to different early-stage quantum-computing hardware from providers including D-Wave Systems Inc., IonQ Inc. and Rigetti Computing.

"Customers are asking for ways to experiment with quantum computers and explore the technology's potential," Charlie Bell, a senior vice president at AWS, said in a statement.

Braket refers to "bra-ket," a standard notation for describing quantum states. The service is expected to launch to all customers in 2020.

The tech giant joins Microsoft Corp., Alphabet Inc.'s Google and International Business Machines Corp. in announcing quantum-computing efforts. Microsoft and IBM are also allowing companies to experiment with quantum-computing hardware over their respective clouds.
