Winnersh Triangle occupier Cyxtera which provides data centre colocation, enterprise bare metal, and interconnectivity services has recently announced their partnership with Oxford Quantum Circuits (OQC). 

Together OQC has launched the world’s first commercial quantum computer at Cyxtera’s data centre in Winnersh Triangle. 

The companies said this is the world’s first integration of a quantum computer into a colocation data centre. The two companies announced that customers will soon have access to quantum computing-as-a-service via Cyxtera’s Reading Data Centre Campus LHR3. 

Currently quantum computing is only accessible via a public cloud. This will now be delivered as a co-location service and customers can integrate seamlessly without having to change their own systems. Data tech companies looking to analyse and test algorithms and data can now do so on a large scale. 

Randy Rowland, Chief Operating Officer, Cyxtera explained: “Quantum computing will enable organisations across a wide range of industries to access unprecedented calculation speed and deeper analytical capabilities.” He added “We’re thrilled to partner with OQC, providing our customers access to the UK’s most advanced quantum computing platform.”

The system is being installed at the moment and will be available to customers in the new year.
