fly-image networkWith the development of new technologies such as AI, big data, cloud computing and other new technologies, the digital transformation of services and services in all walks of life. At the same time, more and more people realize that data is wealth, intelligence is productivity, and so
To realize the application of an innovative database technology, the personnel training is a crucial link. To this end, Huawei has announced that it will launch the university
The data industry has a broad prospect
Statistics show that the overall size of China's digital economy in 2018 is about 31 trillion. Huawei predicted in its Global Industry Outlook GIV 2025 report that by 2025, the amount of global storage data will be as high as 180ZB, and the data utilization rate of enterprises will reach 86 percent. Embracing digital economy and realizing digital transformation will be the only way for enterprise development. Such a huge digital economy needs a huge data infrastructure to support, and different industries, areas, data infrastructure requirements are different. For example, the ecommerce industry, mainly real-time trading data applications, requires high stability and performance of the system, while the financial industry needs a very strict risk control mechanism. In addition, with the commercial application of 5G, the amount of edge data is getting larger and larger, so it is necessary to make the application of edge data simple and intelligent.
Zhou Yuefeng said Huawei's own information systems handle more than 600 applications a day, bringing together business data support businesses from more than 170 countries around the world, so Huawei is well aware of the importance and complexity of data infrastructure.
In recent years, Huawei has been working with industrial partners to build Kunpeng data industry ecology, that is, based on Shengteng, Kunpeng processor, to build integrated data infrastructure and industry applications. Zhou Yuefeng told reporters that Kunpeng data industry is one of Huawei's strategic priorities and is currently committed to building data infrastructure solutions on this basis.
GaussDB is an important link in the ecology of Huawei Kuipeng data industry. Since its official release in May this year, the outside world has paid great attention to GaussDB's actions. Because AI is integrated into the whole life cycle of distributed database, GaussDB has the ability of self-operation and maintenance, self-management, self-tuning, fault self-diagnosis and self-healing, and supports X86, ARM, GPU, NPU and other heterogeneous computing. According to industry reviews, GaussDB is an advanced database product with advanced technology and suitable for large data and AI fusion applications.
In order to promote the wide application of GaussDB database, Huawei announced that it will open source GaussDB. OpenGauss will be officially launched in June 2020, when it will synchronously implement GaussDBOLTP single-machine version of open source. In addition, Huawei plans to cooperate with universities in talent training and innovation research and development, laying a sufficient talent foundation for the wide application of GaussDB.
Face the future and sprinkle
Zhou Yuefeng said that in order to popularize a new technology, it must be applied in the
Huawei hopes that cooperative colleges and universities will have the foundation and resources of database research and development, and will finally see the results, including student training, subsequent scientific problems research and so on. Zhou Yuefeng told reporters that compared with the advanced level of foreign countries, there is no small gap between China's database industry and foreign advanced levels, from engineering implementation, algorithms to mathematical fundamentals, but Huawei believes that this situation can be completely changed through several years of efforts.
In addition to the joint universities, Huawei also announced that it will set up a database industry promotion group with industry partners to jointly promote the development of the database industry on the basis of Kupeng Intelligent Data Industry Alliance. Zhou Yuefeng said that from the Golden Seed Program of Universities to the Industrial Alliance and Promotion Group, they are all to promote innovation and talent cultivation, jointly explore the market and seek greater development space, so that the individuals and enterprises involved can develop better and apply better.
Hope brews in a change
In recent years, AI and big data have been used more and more widely. Because of the great differences between AI and big data, traditional high-performance computing and database systems are facing challenges. This change brings hope for the rise of new and cutting-edge forces.
Zhou Yuefeng said that from the point of view of database, the kernel of GaussDB is independently developed by Huawei, and innovatively integrates AI and database deeply, and will have unique advantages in data scale, data structure and other issues.
From the infrastructure point of view, compared with the traditional Intel X86 architecture, Kuipeng chip has more kernels, more suitable for parallel computing, AI computing, and complements each other with GaussDB database. Of course, from Intel Ecology to Kuipeng Ecology, the latter is a new thing after all, there are still imperfections, customers need to pay the cost of migration to adopt. However, Zhou Yuefeng believes that Kuipeng chips and GaussDB databases can bring new value to customers, such as better performance, lower cost and so on. They will not simply provide an option.
Huawei hopes to have more business partners to participate in the construction of Kunpeng Ecology, but also will be committed to building a completely open ecology. On the one hand, Kuipeng Data Infrastructure needs more applications in order to win more market space. On the other hand, Huawei always focuses on Kuipeng Chip, and other hardware and software products are serving this goal. Huawei self-research server and GaussDB database based on Kuipeng chip will not only run Huawei's software, but also open to software developed by other enterprises, so that partners who join Kuipeng Ecology can live better.
