Back in April, Zapata, a quantum computing startup debuted Orquestra, its end-to-end, unified software platform for designing and running quantum circuits. Previously available in Early Access only, Zapata announced Orquestra's full commercial release today, making the software more accessible to enterprise, government, and academic teams.
The full release brings with it some key developments. First, you will now have access to Honeywell's 6-qubit quantum computer, the System Model HØ, making it the first platform to provide what they call "value-added access to Honeywell’s system". This will allow you to run quantum workflows directly on the firm's quantum computer using Orquestra. Vis-à-vis the initiative, the President of Honeywell Quantum Solutions, Tony Uttley said:
“Through our value-added partnership with Zapata, users now have the unique opportunity to run quantum workflows directly on the Honeywell system. This allows them to get familiar with our system’s all-to-all connectivity and differentiated capabilities."
Orquestra now also integrates with quantum hardware from IBM and Amazon Braket, allowing you to run your algorithms across a range of quantum hardware. The inclusion of Amazon Braket extends your reach to trapped ion processors from IonQ, and superconducting quantum processors from Rigetti as well.
The original cohort of features in Orquestra will be integrated into the full release too. You will have access to modules written in libraries like Cirq, Qiskit, PennyLane and PyQuil. Optimized open-source (VQE, QAOA) and proprietary (VQF) algorithms will also be available. Usage and feedback from the Early Access phase have fueled "major improvements to Orquestra’s features, integrations and interactions,” said Christopher Savoie, CEO and co-founder of Zapata.
