Welcome to Quantum Cloud Services
Quantum Cloud Services (QCS) is Rigetti’s quantum-first cloud computing platform. With QCS, our quantum processors (QPUs) are tightly integrated with classical computing infrastructure and made available to you over the cloud.
If you don't already have a QCS account, you can request one.

Forest SDK

The Forest SDK is a set of software tools that allows you to write quantum programs in Quil, then compile and run them via QCS or a simulator.
The SDK is comprised of the following:
  • pyQuil: A Python library for building and executing Quil programs
  • quilc: An optimizing Quil compiler
  • QVM: A quantum virtual machine (quantum computer simulator)

Try it!

You can try out the Forest SDK against a QVM with zero setup, thanks to our Binder tutorial!
GitHub: rigetti/forest-tutorials/master
When you're ready, continue on to learn how to start using QCS and the Forest SDK.
