Since this year, affected by the epidemic “black swan” incident, people’s working methods and living and consumption habits have quietly changed, and new demands such as telecommuting, online education and online medical care have increased rapidly. On the one hand, it shows the great advantages brought by the digital economy, but on the other hand, it also poses unprecedented challenges to the infrastructure of enterprise data center.
It can be seen that in the top ten forecasts of China’s cloud computing market in 2020 released by IDC at the beginning of the year, it is pointed out that by 2021, more than 90% of China’s enterprises will rely on the combination of private cloud, multiple public clouds and historical legacy platforms to meet the needs of infrastructure.
In addition, by 2023, 90% of new digital services will use the services provided by public cloud and internal API to build composite applications, half of which will use AI (Artificial Intelligence) and ml (machine learning); By 2024, the amount of data driven by the needs of artificial intelligence automation, Internet of things and intelligent devices will exceed 30zb, and 20% of businesses will use it to achieve real-time results. ①
Such a set of data undoubtedly reflects the future trend that hybrid cloud is reconstructing the boundary of the data center and redefining the requirements of the data center infrastructure; More importantly, in the future, with the support of cloud computing, big data and artificial intelligence, the transformation of industrial intelligence will also accelerate.
So, how should we meet the arrival of the digital economy era today? Especially in the context of policy driven policies such as “new infrastructure” and “cloud intelligence”, how should enterprises build digital “immunity” and realize the real implementation of digital transformation and intelligent upgrading?
As we all know, with the acceleration of “new infrastructure” and the digital transformation into the 2.0 era, both industrial change and technological iteration are evolving at an amazing speed, which requires enterprises to complete the upgrading and upgrading as soon as possible from front-end equipment to back-end cloud infrastructure and key applications supporting enterprise operation, By re reconstructing to meet the new requirements, we can observe from three dimensions:
First, from the perspective of data center, in the past few years, with the promotion of enterprise Internet, a large number of enterprises have launched many key business applications, such as high-performance database, production application virtualization and artificial intelligence / big data analysis, so as to quickly respond to business needs. These applications undoubtedly have very strict requirements for the performance, scalability, security and reliability of the data center architecture.
Secondly, from the perspective of cloud infrastructure, enterprise cloud infrastructure architecture is also facing the migration from hybrid cloud to multi cloud. Nowadays, the migration to hybrid multi cloud has become an important direction for many enterprises. This is because the advantage of hybrid multi cloud is that it can adapt to different platform requirements, not only provide the security of private cloud, but also provide the openness of public cloud. It is the best computing environment for enterprises to obtain the best cost and achieve rapid response.
Finally, from the perspective of enterprise application, cloud digital intelligence is accelerating the integration. Today, many enterprises are moving from digitization to intelligence. They should not only realize the simple data collection process, but must filter valuable parts from massive data through the integration of cloud edge and end, and let AI algorithms Computing power and various capabilities can be flexibly invoked on the whole industrial link to truly realize the intelligent transformation of enterprises, and these applications also have very strict requirements for the scale, centralization and intelligence of the underlying architecture of cloud infrastructure.
It can be seen that in the digital era, enterprises are facing “increasing” upgrading and transformation needs in the fields of data center infrastructure, hybrid cloud and cloud digital intelligence integration. How to use new technologies to reshape the competitiveness of enterprises is undoubtedly a big problem that every enterprise is thinking about.
In this context, the “core” will be held on June 19, 2020 Intel data Innovation Summit and new product release will undoubtedly be the best opportunity and platform to understand and observe enterprises’ digital transformation, intelligent upgrading and the latest trend of ecological cooperation in the post epidemic era.
We know that Intel has been committed to building a data centric and efficient architecture, and continues to provide users with leading and comprehensive product portfolio and system level optimization solutions combined with software and hardware, which can better reflect customer value. It not only effectively resolved the major challenges faced by the data center, but also created a solid foundation for enterprise digital transformation and intelligent upgrading, and became the “engine” driving the acceleration of “new infrastructure”.
It is understood that this summit will be held in the form of online live broadcast. At that time, Intel will release a series of new data centric product portfolios, and work with many industry users and partners to jointly display rich practical application cases of its latest products and technologies in many industries, so as to share the successful transformation experience of top enterprise users.
Moreover, the summit is also brilliant in terms of speaker lineup, theme diversity and interactive participation, among which the highlights include:
First, in terms of guest lineup, the summit brought together leaders of digital transformation and intelligent upgrading of various industries, opinion leaders, analysis experts, technology experts and other wise people. In addition to Intel executives, Jin Qianxiang, chief information officer of Shenzhen Huada gene Co., Ltd., Zong Jie, general manager of Jinshan cloud CDN and video cloud product center, Xu Ji, chief architect of Zijin Technology team of Guodian NARI Group, Liu Ying, vice president of Tencent cloud Wen Fangzhi, director of server R & D division of Alibaba cloud intelligent business group of Alibaba group, and other guests will make a collective appearance in the keynote speech and share their insights on industry observation.
Second, in terms of theme content, the summit will also bring five thematic sub venues, 28 practical analysis of solutions and successful cases, and directly address the technical problems of digital transformation and intelligent change. In addition, at the sub venue of AI practice day, participants can also learn 3 College questions and 17 dry AI practical courses with a number of AI scientists and developers to jointly focus on technology, accelerate intelligent change and help customers better grasp the best opportunity for Zhiqiang’s future.
Among the five special sub venues, the big data sub venue will focus on the innovation of data analysis architecture and the importance of innovative software and hardware technology to data processing, analysis and artificial intelligence innovative solutions; The artificial intelligence branch will share the Intel Xeon extensible platform integrating AI acceleration, that is, new achievements in innovative software and hardware technology. At the same time, partners will also bring AI landing experience and best practices in multiple fields and scenarios such as manufacturing and medical treatment; HPC high performance computing branch will explore the trend of HPC’s evolution to standards and openness, display the new Intel full stack high performance computing product portfolio, and show the future product technology innovation blueprint of HPC and AI integration.
At the same time, the 5g cloud network integration sub venue will focus on 5g’s new infrastructure and edge application innovation, gain insight into 5g’s profound changes in communication network architecture, network construction mode, technology evolution and production mode of all walks of life from a forward-looking perspective, and exchange the experience and achievements of Intel and partners around 5g AI intelligent edge integration innovation in this field; Cloud computing and Internet sub venues will focus on reducing the complexity of “going to the cloud, using the cloud and managing the cloud”, as well as examples such as the full stack data center scheme and all-dimensional cloud platform launched by Intel and partners, as well as a series of exploration and innovation in new application fields such as video, heterogeneous computing and containers.
It is worth mentioning that on the Intel AI practice day, Intel specially organized three practical topics from cloud to end to solve the practical problems of AI developer solutions, and learned to do 17 online courses. Intel senior engineers act as lecturers, based on hands-on practice, share application skills, and teach the principles and processes of efficient and high-quality application development on IA architecture. A large number of code display and online hands-on demonstration make it easier to understand and master. Developers can carry out open innovation according to application requirements.
Third, in terms of interactive participation, the content of the partner zone must be worth seeing. The implementation of solutions and product express delivery of 23 partners will surely make participants gain something. In addition, the summit also opened an interactive area and the activity of “accumulate in points for gifts”. All 8 kinds of participants can get in points. Accumulated to in points, there are rich gifts that can be exchanged in the in point mall!
In general, through the precipitation and release of technological innovation for many years and the new momentum formed by the new ecology built with partners, Intel will undoubtedly make the digital transformation and intelligent upgrading of Chinese enterprises and the landing of China’s digital economy have more growth possibilities. Therefore, in the face of the upcoming 2020 Intel data Innovation Summit and new product launch, do you have more expectations like me?
