Length: 3 pages
The French Government recently announced a national program worth over 1.8 billion euros (US $2.18 billion) over five years targeted to propel France into a global leadership position in a wide range of quantum technologies, including quantum-based computers, sensors, post-quantum cryptography, and communications. Specific quantum computing budgets are shared across near-term quantum simulator and NISQ system development as well as longer-term universal error corrected quantum systems. Albeit a strong comprehensive plan, France is one of the last major nations to come out with a wide-ranging national plan to spur innovation in quantum technologies and could be in catch-up mode for at least the next few years.
A Vendor Shares View of the 2018 HPC Market
Hyperion Research recently closed the books on the 2018 year for the high performance computing market in our market tracking database, the QView. 2018 was another high growth year, with the server market reaching $13.7 billion, and the total market (servers, storage, software and technical support service) totaling more than $27.6 billion. The market has continued to grow at a steady rate of around 6% for the past 5 years.

Cloud-based Quantum Computing: A Growing Assortment of Opportunities for QC Application Developers
Bob Sorensen, Steve Conway, Alex Norton and Earl Joseph
This Quick Take looks at the growing availability of commercial cloud-based quantum computing (QC), supported through either direct access to true QC systems or QC simulators based on traditional digital hardware. In addition to QC hardware, most cloud-based QC providers are also rolling out their own software development environments to help existing and new QC software developers more effectively explore QC programming. The choice of options for potential QC users is growing, and each of the QC providers offers a distinct take on QC architecture and programming.
