Optimizing stability and performance of cloud-based quantum systems

View publication


Since the launch of the first five-qubit device on the IBM Q Experience platform in 2016, we have made steady increases in the number of devices available for cloud access, as well as their fidelity, stability, speed and uptime. Here we will discuss some of the challenges encountered, lessons learned, and best practices adopted in the bring-up, operation, and maintenance of these devices.
