Japan’s RIKEN and Fujitsu recently announced the opening of the RIKEN RQC-Fujitsu Collaboration Center to support joint research and development of foundational technologies necessary to the development of quantum computers (QC), with a near-term goal of producing a 1000 qubit superconducting quantum computer. RIKEN has world-class skills in leading-edge scientific research including a range of quantum technologies while Fujitsu has demonstrated long-standing expertise in developing and fielding some of the highest performing advanced computing systems in the world. Such a combination could yield significant technology gains in the sector and open new areas of quantum computing applications and end uses. If able to successfully transition the results of this collaboration into commercial offerings, Fujitsu stands to become a strong competitor to leading commercial QC developers in the US and EU.
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.

Seasonal Changes in Q1 HPC Server Growth from 2004 to 2018
Alex Norton, Bob Sorensen, Earl Joseph and Steve Conway
First quarter 2018 HPC server revenues were strong, with notable high quarter over quarter growth from the first quarter of last year. Hyperion Research has been analyzing the data to ascertain what these numbers mean and what they may indicate about full-year 2018 in HPC. These assessments incorporate Hyperion Research discussions with a global base of people in the HPC sector as well as an analysis of the Hyperion Research QView database, a long-standing collection of quarterly revenues and projections for the major HPC vendors.
