NVIDIA partners with ORCA and PSNC in quantum push

ORCA Computing and the Poznań Supercomputing and Networking Center (PSNC) have announced a collaboration with NVIDIA to accelerate the development of hybrid quantum-classical high-performance computing.

ORCA will provide PSNC with the first Quantum Computers in conjunction with NVIDIA GPU-based clusters. The parties will use PSNC’s developer environment and the NVIDIA CUDA-Q open-source quantum computing platform, all functioning within a specialised hardware and software ecosystem.

ORCA is a leading quantum computing company and PSNC an internationally renowned research and development supercomputing centre. Statements from the teams emphasised the “necessity of hybrid computing to unlock the full potential of quantum computing.”

The initiative will use multiple quantum computers, the ORCA PT-1 Series quantum photonic systems recently installed at PSNC.

NVIDIA's advanced GPU and quantum software will be a propulsiev addition to PSNC's robust infrastructure and high-performance computing expertise. Their collaborative efforts will concentrate on building the necessary infrastructure for algorithm development, performance characterization, and addressing grand challenge applications.

"This is an important step toward realizing the full potential of quantum-accelerated supercomputing," said Timothy Costa, Director of High-Performance Computing and Quantum at NVIDIA. "This collaboration will accelerate developments in the most important use cases, fostering groundbreaking discoveries and driving technological advancements that help shape the future of computing."

"The quantum leadership that the Poznań Supercomputing and Networking Center, ORCA Computing, and NVIDIA bring to this pivotal collaboration is unparalleled,” said Steve Conway, Senior Analyst at Intersect360 Research. “The potential outcomes would be market changing.”
