Sep 19, 2019

[Shanghai, China, September 19, 2019] At HUAWEI CONNECT 2019, David Wang, Executive Director of the Board and President of ICT Strategy & Marketing, gave a speech at the summit in the Shanghai World Expo Exhibition & Convention Center. He said, "Data and intelligence are changing the way we work and live. Data is becoming a new resource and intelligence is driving productivity. In the next ten years, Huawei is ready to solve application problems in data and intelligence convergence, develop intelligent data, and lead data infrastructure innovation. We'll also advance the database industry by opening up our GaussDB infrastructure and working with top universities in the upcoming GaussDB Golden Seeds Development Program to help cultivate the data infrastructure talents of tomorrow. We are committed to collaborating with customers, partners, and universities to build an open and cooperative ecosystem that benefits everyone and creates business success."

During its presentations on Empowering Converged Data Infrastructure with Kunpeng, Huawei proposed three intelligent solutions for converged data infrastructure powered by Ascend and Kunpeng processors: data lakes, Storage-computing synergy and data edges. Huawei and industry partners also announced the establishment of a Database Industry Working Group based on the Kunpeng Intelligent Data Industry Alliance. The group will launch the GaussDB Golden Seeds Development Program for Academia to promote the database industry ecosystem.

150 Million RMB Funds Golden Seeds Development Program for Academia

Cultivating talent is critical to developing the database industry. Peter Zhou, President of the Intelligent Data and Storage Domain, stated, "Our GaussDB Golden Seeds Development Program for Academia will promote database innovation. We will invest 150 million RMB in research and university partnerships to provide GaussDB training, internships, and job opportunities. We also plan to build 10 GaussDB innovation labs on college campuses, four of which were unveiled today with East China Normal University (ECNU), Wuhan University (WHU), Chongqing University of Posts and Telecommunications (CQUPT), and National Engineering Laboratory for Big Data Software of the Tsinghua University (NELBDS). Working with top experts, we will establish world-class databases and a mature database industry."

Kunpeng Data Industry Ecosystem and Database Industry Working Group Advance the Digital Revolution

The digital economy is a modern industrial revolution, changing not only the global financial system, but also society. Huawei's Global Industry Vision (GIV) 2025 report estimates that the annual volume of global data will reach 180 ZB, and enterprises will capitalize on 86% of their produced data. Embracing the digital economy and transformation is vital for every enterprise. Huawei is working with industry partners to build a Kunpeng data industry ecosystem. Their goal is to power industry applications and converged data infrastructure with Ascend and Kunpeng processors for every industry. Huawei and its partners also announced the establishment of the Database Industry Working Group based on the Kunpeng Intelligent Data Industry Alliance to promote database industry development.

Converged Data Infrastructure Achieves Zero Data Migration for Tens of Thousands of Clusters

Peter Zhou, Vice President of the IT Product Line and President of Intelligent Data & Storage Domain, said, "Enterprises usually don't understand the value of the vast amount of untapped data in their systems. Huawei's converged data infrastructure fully leverages that potential with data storage, processing capabilities, and cutting-edge technologies. New technology, such as in-storage computing and chip passthrough, processes massive amounts of multi-format data in real time to meet enterprise requirements for instant service analysis and decision-making. The infrastructure also establishes efficient data interconnections between GaussDB's databases and FusionInsight's big data platform to achieve zero data migration for tens of thousands of large clusters."

The advantages of Huawei's converged data infrastructure with Kunpeng:

Huawei also provides ROMA solution for multi source access and DAYU for data enablement.
