Microsoft Azure Quantum IonQ Aria

IonQ Aria is the latest quantum computer that has achieved a record 20 algorithmic qubits and it is now the most powerful quantum computer in the industry based on standard application-oriented industry benchmarks. Microsoft today announced that IonQ Aria is now available exclusively on Azure Quantum. It is important to note that IonQ Harmony is already available on Azure Quantum.

IonQ’s dynamically reconfigurable systems, ranging from 11 to 23 fully connected qubits, enable you to run a two-qubit gate between any pair.

With this availability, anyone with access to the Azure Quantum platform can process jobs on Aria. Aria is available under a subscription model for monthly access on Azure. Also, you can now try IonQ Aria on Azure Quantum, with an automatic free $500 credit towards IonQ QPUs or up to $10,000 in free credits through the Azure Quantum Research Credits program.

“The availability of both IonQ Aria and IonQ Harmony on the Azure Quantum platform ensures that enterprise customers and research institutions have a choice when it comes to selecting which quantum system is best suited for their specific needs,” says Peter Chapman, President and CEO, IonQ. “Using our systems to entangle any pair of qubits is a capability that is unique at this scale and which enables faster and more accurate execution of quantum algorithms.”
