Phoenix Network Science and Technology News October 22 news, in the "2021 IDEA Conference" of the "academic dialogue" link, the Chinese Academy of Engineering, Alibaba Cloud founder and Alibaba Group Technical Committee Chairman Wang Jian said that when the creation of Alibaba Cloud, in fact, do not want to call it cloud computing.The word cloud computing is popular because it's on the cover of BusinessWeek, called out by business people, not just academic discussions, so I've always had a bit of a heart in it.
Wang Jian revealed that at that time want to name "Alibaba Cloud" general computing company, a bit like today's GE. "Why GE was called GE at the time, because the change in power to the world is to turn it into a universal power, which is remarkable."
Mr Wang is proud that Alibaba Cloud is one of the few cloud computing companies with its own clear architectureAnd that's very important. "In addition to cloud customers, Alibaba's own business is running on Alibaba Cloud, but few companies in the world have done so, just as Amazon's own business is not running on its own cloud, and Google's biggest challenge is its cloud services and its own business, and there are differences."
At that time, while working at Microsoft Research Institute, Wang Jian and Shen Xiangyang discussed that to do one thing successfully, there is a very simple rule that everyone can do, that is, focus and patience. "When I first started doing cloud computing, I realized the help of both things." Wang Jian said.
Wang Jian believes that only those who can focus have the capital to say patience, and patience is cyclical, because technological innovation is cyclical, and basically every ten years is a cycle. "People who shoot in a different place are not qualified to talk about patience."
In view of the development of Guangdong, Hong Kong and Macao, Wang Jian believes that Guangdong, Hong Kong and Macao were important bridgeheads for China's reform and opening up. At the same time, compared with the Yangtze River Delta, the culture of Guangdong, Hong Kong and Macao is more diverse, and the culture of diversity is more suitable for innovation. "It's actually a place where global innovation can be made, and if it's labeled something else, I think it's a shame."
