Amazon Braket is a fully managed service that makes it easy for scientists, researchers, and developers to explore, build, test, and run quantum computing algorithms. Amazon Braket helps you get started learning about quantum computing by providing a development environment to build quantum algorithms, test them on simulated quantum computers, and run them on your choice of different quantum hardware technologies.

Quantum computing has the potential to solve computational problems that are beyond the reach of classical computers by harnessing the laws of quantum mechanics to build more powerful tools for processing information. This approach to computing has the ability to transform areas such as energy storage, chemical engineering, material science, drug discovery, optimization, and machine learning. But defining those problems and programming quantum computers to solve them requires a new set of skills. At the same time, gaining access to quantum computing hardware to run your algorithms and optimize your designs can be expensive and inconvenient. This has made it difficult to evaluate the current state of the technology and plan for when to invest your resources to maximize its potential.

Amazon Braket lets you design your own quantum algorithms from scratch or choose from a set of pre-built algorithms. Once you define your algorithm, Amazon Braket provides a fully managed simulation service to help troubleshoot and verify your implementation. When you are ready, you can run your algorithm on your choice of different quantum computers from our quantum hardware providers, including D-Wave, IonQ, and Rigetti, all accessed through a single user experience. To make it easier to develop hybrid algorithms that combine classical and quantum tasks, Amazon Braket helps manage classical compute resources and establish low-latency connections to the quantum hardware.

How It Works

Amazon Braket provides step-by-step guides, tutorials, and a resource library to help you get started quickly with quantum computing.


To design quantum algorithms, you can use fully managed Jupyter notebooks directly from the Amazon Braket console. Sample notebooks give you access to pre-installed developer tools, example algorithms, and documentation that makes it easy to get started.


Simulators running on classical hardware can be used to accelerate algorithm development by making it easy to troubleshoot code and optimize designs. Amazon Braket runs simulations as a fully managed service, automatically setting up the required compute instances, running the simulation, publishing results to Amazon S3, and turning off resources when complete.


You can execute your quantum algorithm on your choice of quantum hardware, paying only for the time that you use. If you chose to run hybrid quantum algorithms, Amazon Braket can automatically set up the required classical compute resources and manage the workflow between classical and quantum tasks.


After completion, you will be automatically notified and your results will be stored in Amazon S3. Amazon Braket publishes event logs and performance metrics such as completion status and execution time to Amazon CloudWatch.

With Amazon Braket you can explore quantum computing, evaluate its potential, and build expertise for the future.
