The data center is expected to be operational by 2024,With multiple IBM quantum computing systems, each equipped with utility-scale quantum processors, or processors with more than 100 qubits

In addition, the establishment of the data center also marks the completion of IBM Quantum European Cloud area. The move is aimed at ensuring that IBM complies with EU regulations that allow all EU work data to be processed within the EU. This is the second quantum data center and quantum cloud area built by IBM worldwide, after New York City.

Jay Gambetta, vice president of IBM Quantum, said: "Europe has some of the most advanced quantum computing users in the world, and interest in quantum computing is only going to grow with the advent of the utility-scale quantum processor era. IBM's new quantum data center and cloud area will provide European users with a new option to help them harness the power of quantum computing to solve some of the world's most challenging problems."

IBM has more than 60 quantum computing clients in Europe, including Bosch, Germany's Federal National Defense University, CERN, and T-Systems, a unit of Deutsche Telekom, according to a review of IBM's website.
