Shang Haifeng, President of Huawei Cloud Stack
Shang Haifeng, President of Huawei Cloud Stack, said: "We have been stepping up efforts to dive into industries by sticking to our AI for Industries strategy. Today, only a few companies are able to build large models. With robust capabilities and extensive expertise of Huawei Cloud Stack and Pangu Models, we hope to empower every enterprise to build their own large models."
Building On-premises Large Models for Every Enterprise in One Stop
Huawei Cloud Stack, a hybrid cloud platform, can be used to deploy AI cloud services and key products of large models at on-premises data centers of enterprises. It helps enterprises build on-premises large models in one stop. Huawei Cloud Stack 8.3 provides a comprehensive AI pipeline, covering AI computing power, compute architectures, frameworks, development platforms, development suites, foundation models, and a wide range of professional services, which lowers the barriers to entry when building large models. Huawei Cloud Stack has also leveraged software-hardware synergy to optimize operator fusion and mixed precision. It has improved the training efficiency by 45%. Pangu models have been used by customers across more than 10 industries.
An Industrial Internet Architecture with Five Core Capabilities
Huawei Cloud, backed by their extensive industrial expertise, developed an industrial Internet architecture using Huawei Cloud Stack. The architecture enables industrial cloud-edge synergy, industrial data collection, industrial data convergence, industrial AI Cortex, and industrial application development. It can accommodate a broad spectrum of use cases and boost full-link industrial production from data collection to intelligent applications.
Trusted Data Circulation
Huawei Cloud launched a data circulation solution based on their data governance capabilities and data circulation practices. The solution includes data-AI convergence, blockchain, and privacy computing capabilities provided by Huawei Cloud Stack 8.3. It helps enterprises develop high-quality data products and make data available while invisible. Plus, the Exchange Data Space (EDS) service enables trusted circulation and authorized operations of data. It also enables data sharing within a domain.
At HUAWEI CONNECT 2023, Huawei Cloud and Shanghai Data Group launched joint innovation projects for building distinguished city data spaces. Through the projects, the two parties will enhance collaboration in seeking ways to promote data circulation. They envision high-quality development of the data industry.
More Trustworthiness in Software Supply
Huawei Cloud leveraged powerful processes and tools plus the vast experience of Huawei's Integrated Product Development (IPD) transformation to develop CodeArts, a software development pipeline. Huawei Cloud Stack 8.3 has enriched CodeArts capabilities. It can now provide more than 30 Huawei-developed core capabilities for the full links of software supply from infrastructure and software dependencies to tools.
CodeArts has won trust from Haizhou System Technology Co., Ltd. Using CodeArts, Haizhou System Technology has established an industry-leading industrial software R&D platform. The platform enables structured processes and contractual R&D for zero-defect deliveries based on IPD models. It lets over 1,000 developers closely collaborate with each other and creates a technical cradle for independent innovation in large-scale industrial production.
Huawei Cloud Stack 8.3 will be commercially available on September 30, 2023. Huawei Cloud looks to joining hands with customers and partners in all industries to embark on a new cloud journey and accelerate intelligent upgrade.
