Key words: open source
Keep the border, insist on doing something and not doing something
Nanfang Daily: Kuan Li
Zhang Xiwei: the purpose of the new infrastructure is to promote the high quality development of the digital economy. Data is the means of production, computing power is the new productive force, and the abundance of computing power will determine the efficiency of the ICT system. Thus ultimately affect the whole industry intelligence and information level. So, from computers to calculations
We have made a deduction. For example, in the manufacturing industry, every dollar invested can bring us $10 in final output, while retail and transportation can bring us $5 in final revenue. Computing power has gradually become an important indicator to measure economic and social development as GDP. However, at present, China's per capita computing power is still at the average level of medium-sized developing countries, so there is unlimited space for future development of computational power.
Nanfang Daily: in response to the huge demand for computing, Huawei proposes to open source. What kind of goal do you want to achieve?
Zhang Xiwei: The domestic basic software lacks the core competence in the operating system, the database and so on domain, needs to break a
The main reason is that China lacks independent and controllable competitiveness in the field of basic software and uses a large number of foreign commercial software. Domestic R & D personnel with basic software kernel technology are scarce, the country may have only a few thousand people, but also scattered in different enterprises. R & D personnel in different enterprises are scattered, and the status quo of fighting on their own needs to be broken. Huawei hope to build a cooperative and win-win cooperative development relationship through the open source model, give play to the technical strength of the whole industry, and realize it togethe
Huawei open source the operating system (openeuler), database (opengauss) and openlookeng (data virtualization engine) that Huawei has built for more than ten years to open up and share Huawei's technology accumulation in basic software to all industry partners. At the same time, Huawei adheres to its own business boundary, does not make its own commercial products in the fields of operating system, database and other basic software, helps its partners to issue commercial products, and gives full play to the differentiated advantages of its partners to serve customers in various industries.
Key words: trust
The sales volume of Kunpeng server is self-made
Nanfang Daily: what is the most difficult part in ecological construction?
Zhang Xiwei: Huawei has 17 years of server hardware R & D and production capacity. Huawei is good at making its own products and is a product-oriented enterprise. Now it wants to turn to be an ecological enterprise, and requires us to share our capabilities with our partners to reach the highest level in the industry. It's easier said than done!
For example, partner capacities are uneven and need to be addressed to short-capacity partners
Nanfang Daily: how to build an environment of mutual trust in ecological construction?
Zhang Xiwei: at the beginning of last year, many partners doubted whether Huawei would really open the motherboard and whether it would really give up such a large market and corresponding revenue in the server business field. By June 2020, the sales volume of Kunpeng server produced by our partner has exceeded that of Taishan server produced by Huawei, which has really achieved the priority of market partners.
For example, China Mobile is a very important customer group in Huawei. In 2020, the technical route of Kunpeng in the project of China Mobile server collection obtained nearly 20,000 servers, accounting for 70% of the total collection. Throughout the Kunpeng procurement space, partners' servers have gained nearly 70% of the share, Huawei their own brands of TaiShan servers only account for a small proportion. Huawei demonstrate, with practical action, the commitment to meeting the priorities of the partners and to bringing them to bea
Nanfang Daily: what is Huawei's plan for Kunpeng talent cultivation?
Zhang Xiwei: at present, we have set up 18 Kunpeng ecological innovation centers throughout the country. Among them, Guangzhou and Shenzhen have already started operation, and the next step will be to add new planning in Zhuhai. We hope to speed up the integration and innovation by combining the industrial advantages of various cities. For example, there are many Internet enterprises and financial enterprises in Shenzhen, and many industrial solutions have been created based on Kunpeng. Guangzhou colleges and universities are rich in resources, so we will cooperate with colleges and universities to realize the integration of production, learning and research in the field of basic software and core algorithm.
We have always focused on the development of thick technology empowerment, while facing the national colleges and universities to deepen the talent ecology. After the school starts this autumn, Kunpeng shengteng's courses will become compulsory courses in more than 20 colleges and universities, and will gradually penetrate into 211 / 985 universities and various professional colleges next year. In the future, we will develop more than one million Kunpeng developers in three years through Kunpeng online community and offline serial Kunpeng Technology Salon.
