Cyxtera, a global leader in data centre colocation, interconnection services and digital infrastructure, has announced the launch of its new AI + Quantum Center of Excellence (COE) in the company’s LHR3 data centre in Reading, UK.
Cyxtera designed its COE to serve as a testing and activation hub for companies exploring how to leverage AI and Quantum Computing in their environments. By providing access to a wide breadth of best-of-breed technology providers and strategic partners – as well as the ability to knit them together via its Digital Exchange network fabric – Cyxtera has established a secure testing lab for AI and Quantum workloads.
“The demand for AI and Quantum capabilities continues to grow, but many companies don’t know where to start, are overwhelmed by vendor options and lack internal resources to properly tackle these initiatives,” said Holland Barry, Senior Vice President and Field Chief Technology Officer at Cyxtera. “Our vision for the COE is to provide a controlled lab environment where our customers can explore, test and validate technologies alongside our team and experts from our partner organisations, to help define and realise benefits from their AI and Quantum strategies.”
Founding partners of Cyxtera’s COE include Fujitsu, Boston Limited, Oxford Quantum Circuits (OQC), SECQAI, Amulet Hotkey and Asperitas.Click below to share this article
