Building and owning a quantum computer is hard. It’s expensive, difficult to maintain, and requires a very rarefied level of expertise. Owning one is not feasible for individuals, or even most companies. Enter quantum-as-a-service (QaaS), a cloud-based subscription to quantum computing capabilities. Amazon Web Services provides such a service, Amazon Bracket, to individuals and academics. IBM also offers a QaaS platform called IBM Quantum, which allows users to run quantum algorithms, debug and optimize quantum circuits, and access quantum training. Other players include D-Wave, Rigetti Computing, and Google.
