Frequently asked questions

Is the Boulder Opal license limited to a single user?

Boulder Opal cloud licenses can accommodate an unlimited number of users. We provide recommendations for different license tiers for different group sizes to ensure that internal competition among users does not lead to computational delays.

What is the Hybrid cloud platform of Boulder Opal? 

Hybrid cloud combines local deployment for low-latency execution with cloud acceleration for compute-intensive tasks. The Boulder Opal Scale Up package can be customized based on needs.

What is calculation concurrency?

Number of calculations can be run concurrently across multiple cloud-hosted machines to accelerate computation. Having a higher concurrency is useful when you want to speed up your calculations or share computational resources within your team.

What are the cloud machine hours? 

Number of hours of running a single cloud-hosted CPU machine in a year. You can buy additional machine time to supplement your Essentials, Performance or Professional plan. 

Are there resources to help my learning curve?

You can access a comprehensive documentation suite to help you on your journey, starting with Get started guide, and Tutorials

Are Boulder Opal results validated on hardware or software?

We have independently validated and published technical validation of key demonstrations on hardware through our research - this includes device-level demonstrations of improvements >10X.

We have also established a range of hardware validations with our customers and R&D partners around the world, collected in our case studies.
