Amazon Machine Image(AMI)

“SQBM+ for AWS,” a version of SQBM+ software customized for the AWS Marketplace operated by Amazon Web Services, Inc. is available.
We have also released a proof of concept(PoC) version of SBM for free. (The PoC version of SBM is the previous version.)


  • SQBM+ for AWS is provided as an Amazon Machine Image (AMI). Providing SQBM+ as a software module will allow customers to incorporate SQBM+ into their business applications and systems.
    An AMI is a template containing a software configuration (e.g. an operating system, an application server and  applications) that is used to launch an instance—a copy of the AMI running as a virtual server in the AWS Cloud.
    • Starting to use SQBM+ is quick and easy, as the preconfigured AMI launches the instance. There is no need to install SQBM+.
    • The SQBM+ instance is dedicated to the user and quickly processes all requests. As it is a dedicated copy, users can freely control the resource (e.g. auto-scale, redundancy, start/stop).
    • Can be embedded in the customer's system to reduce network overhead.
  • SBM runs on a new algorithm that significantly improves speed, accuracy, and scale of use in the AWS Cloud.
  • SBM’s characteristics realize an Ising solver capable of handling Ising problems with up to 100,000 variables.
  • Availability on AWS Marketplace. AWS Marketplace is a curated digital catalog that customers can use to find, buy, deploy, and manage third-party software, data, and services to build solutions and run their businesses. Its pre-configured software can be launched with just a few clicks. If you have an AWS account, you can use it immediately.
  • Two SQBM+ for AWS plans are available: Learn & Development is limited to use for familiarization; Business Standard is designed to support business operations. Both plans have hourly and monthly pricing models.

the PoC version of SBM

Software module for the on-premise environment

FPGA version

The SB algorithm is implemented in a dedicated high-speed processing circuit that operates on an FPGA (Field Programmable Gate Array).
The dedicated high-speed processing circuit in the system can be accessed directly without a network connection.
Real-time systems with SQBM+ can be built on various devices (general-purpose computers with Linux OS) equipped with FPGA boards.
For application development, API (Application Interface) functions for C and Python languages ​​familiar to many system developers are provided.
In order to prototype and demonstrate innovative real-time application systems, we offer a service (test marketing version) that provides IP licenses that operate on commercially available FPGA boards (Intel® FPGA PAC) for research purposes only. Three sample applications are pre-packaged to facilitate application development by users. Each of these is expected to be applied to autonomous driving and robot control systems, to delivery route search and disaster emergency response systems, and to financial transaction systems.
Please contact us for details.
