On September 17, the cloud habitat 2020 Conference opened online. This is the first time cloud habitat conference has been held online.
At the conference, Alibaba cloud officially announced that it had entered the era of 2.0. Feitian cloud, the “supercomputer”, would be equipped with a digital native operating system, providing a windows like interface, so that people who do not understand the code can also use the “cloud” capability.
Zhang Jianfeng, President of Alibaba cloud intelligence and President of Dharma Institute, said that in the past 10 years, Alibaba cloud has developed its own Feitian cloud platform and built a “supercomputer”.
It is reported that Alibaba cloud 2.0 is equal to Feitian cloud platform + Digital native operating system, so that more enterprises and organizations can have the ability of cloud, data, intelligence, mobility and IOT without understanding the code.
At the conference, Alibaba cloud released the first cloud computer “shadowless”. According to the official saying, “shadowless” can do things that computers can do and things that computers can’t sit on. In the future, everyone will have their own computer in the cloud.
According to reports, “shadowless” is a “supercomputer” in the cloud. There is no host in the local area, and there is no shadow of the computer CPU and hard disk. All hardware devices are concentrated in the data center on the cloud.
Users only need a C-key the size of a business card, and they can open nearly infinite computing power.
Zhang Jianfeng demonstrated at the launch site that on a C-key the size of a business card holder, the cloud computer service can be accessed after login through fingerprint.
Just connect a screen, you can enter the desktop of the exclusive cloud computer, access a variety of applications and files, design modeling, animation rendering and other operations.
“Shadowless” supports unlimited capacity expansion. A single application resource can be flexibly expanded to 104 core CPU and 1.5T memory, which can easily meet the needs of high-performance computing.
In addition, “shadowless” supports on-demand configuration of performance, the price of which is half of that of traditional PCs under the same performance. At the same time, it supports unlimited upgrade, and it does not need to replace it every 3-5 years. Shadowless all data is stored in the cloud, so it is not afraid of computer loss or virus. It enjoys the same level of security protection as Alibaba cloud data center.
In addition, “shadowless” also uses the “cloud flow” technology developed by Alibaba cloud, which can control the data downlink delay within 70ms under 2K 60Hz blue light quality. In the office network environment, shadowless experience is very smooth.
It is reported that at present, no shadow only to the business office market. Services will be provided to individual users in the future.
