Over the years, several players have emerged in the quantum computing market, offering a variety of approaches to the technology.

From trapped ions to photonic or superconducting, these systems all show promise and all face significant challenges to becoming commercially viable.

In this Zero Downtime podcast episode, we are joined by Yuval Boger of QuEra, a neutral atom-based quantum computer company, to talk about the different types of quantum computers and the challenges in making them powerful and accurate enough for widespread adoption and deployment.

In addition, we talk about some of the uses that quantum computing may be more appropriate than traditional supercomputing.

We also discuss some of the practicalities of deploying quantum computers in data centers, with some such systems requiring powerful cooling systems.

So, which type of quantum computer will win out in the end?
