Role within QSolid
In the QSolid project ParTec is engaged in the subproject "Integration of the Quantum Hardware into the HPC Infrastructure" as part of the work package WP10 ("HPC Integration"). This subproject is dedicated to the essential aspects of connecting the quantum hardware to existing MSA infrastructures. Besides the questions of system administration, user access, system monitoring, and issue tracking, the focus is on the management and allocation of the resources provided by the quantum hardware. ParTec is leading two of the five tasks to which it provides essential contributions.
Our vision for QSolid
The efficient integration of the QPU into a system built according to the Modular Supercomputing Architecture is a fascinating and challenging task. Using the ParaStation Modulo software suite this integration will bring together HPC and classical quantum computing, enabling quantum-hybrid workflows. My colleagues at ParTec AG and I are proud to be part of such an empowering and future-oriented project.- from Patrick Küven
