At this Huawei developer conference, Yu Chengdong did not mention the new developments of Hongmeng. However, it is not disappointing that Huawei cloud has ushered in another update. At the meeting, Yu Chengdong released six innovative technologies: Huawei cloud CCE turbo, Huawei cloud cloudide, Huawei cloud gaussdb (for opengauss), tics trusted intelligent computing service, Huawei cloud Pangu model, and diversity computing basic software. At the same time, Huawei announced that it would invest US $220million in “fertile soil plan 200” in 2021 to continuously promote industrial ecological development around Huawei cloud, Kunpeng and shengteng.
According to yuchengdong, with the support of more than 20000 partners and 2.4 million + developers around the world, Kunpeng / shengteng has increased sixfold, and storage ranks first in China’s market share and fourth in the world. Huawei cloud continues to maintain the highest growth rate among the world’s mainstream cloud service providers (168%). At the same time, he also expressed his prediction on the development trend of the cloud service market. “By 2025, the global enterprise cloud technology utilization rate will reach 100%, and the full cloud is unstoppable.”.
One of the five clouds in the world
The year 2020 is a special year. It is this year that Huawei cloud flies against the trend. The Gartner public cloud global IAAs market report shows that in 2020, Huawei cloud’s global IAAs market ranking rose to the top two in China and the top five in the world, becoming one of the five clouds in the world.
From the layout to now, Huawei cloud has been “updating dynamically”. At the 2017 Huawei China ecological partnership conference, Xu Zhijun, vice chairman and rotating CEO of Huawei, announced Huawei’s plan to enter the public cloud market and launched the cloud partnership plan; In 2019, Huawei cloud officially released the SaaS “cloud” cultivation plan; In 2020, Huawei cloud released the government enterprise strategy, cloud native 2.0 concepts and solutions, etc; Some time ago, Huawei cloud launched a new 2021 product launch plan, and released a full range of distributed cloud product portfolios. Each update shows Huawei cloud’s ability to globalize products, technologies and services and its open ecology, and it is moving towards the concept of inclusive AI.
Yuchengdong pointed out that Huawei cloud’s strategy is to be the black land of the intelligent world, and is committed to creating the best application construction platform for developers to make applications thrive. Adhere to the cloud and give priority to providing it basic platform services for customers in the cloud mode; Continue to focus on system and architecture innovation, strengthen software, and make the black land more fertile; Fully support developers to build applications for thousands of industries based on “black land”.
In recent years, under the internal driving forces such as external pressure and 5g technology development, enterprise digital transformation has become a trend. Gartner predicts that the traditional data centers of enterprises will be closed by 90%. Yu Chengdong believes that the cloud must be the future of ICT industry and the base of every enterprise’s digital transformation.
At present, AI has become a new productivity. Huawei process it fully uses cloud native technology, 100% of new applications use containers, and the R & D system deployment and resource utilization rate have been increased by more than 10 times. Yu Chengdong gave an example. Huawei delivers more than 3 million sites every year, and more than 50million installation items need to be inspected. After the introduction of AI, the single site acceptance efficiency is increased by 8 times, and the annual cost savings exceed RMB 6billion. This is the value of Huawei cloud.
Yu Chengdong said that since Huawei established the AI enabling department in 2018, it has invested US $1 billion a year and has been applied in all main business processes and scenarios. By 2025, the AI utilization rate of large enterprises will reach 97%, and the AI utilization rate of enterprise production process will also reach 75%.
USD 220million “fertile soil plan 2.0” upgrade
At this Huawei developer conference, Huawei brought six innovative technologies: Huawei cloud CCE turbo, Huawei cloud cloudide, Huawei cloud gaussdb (for opengauss), tics trusted intelligent computing service, Huawei cloud Pangu model, and basic software. Help developers to upgrade their intelligence from six aspects: cloud infrastructure, application enabling, AI enabling, data enabling and diversified basic software.
At the same time, Huawei announced that it would invest US $220million in the “fertile soil plan 200” in 2021, including the Kunpeng Zhongzhi plan and the shengteng Zhongzhi plan, and continue to promote the industrial ecological development around Huawei cloud, Kunpeng and shengteng.
In 2015, Huawei officially released the “fertile soil plan” at the first Huawei developer conference, which aims to help partners grow rapidly with the purpose of “opening up”, and plans to invest US $1billion in the fertile soil plan in five years. Just six years later, the “fertile soil program 200” invested US $220million, increasing support and investment.
According to Zhang Ping’an, President of Huawei cloud Bu and President of Huawei consumer cloud services, in 2020, Huawei plans to invest US $200million to build 120 Huawei cloud innovation centers and 24 Kunpeng shengteng innovation centers around the world, bringing together 2.4 million + developers.
Huawei has been trying to open up for nearly ten years. In the past development, the data directly shows the success of Huawei’s “fertile soil plan”. In 2020, Huawei’s cloud partners accounted for 60% of the revenue, with a growth rate of 188%. Under the “partner +ict”, the path of digital survival and enterprise digital transformation is becoming more and more stable.
Zhang Ping’an said that Huawei’s cloud fertile land cloud innovation plan will focus on enabling SAAS and ISV partners to provide cloud resources, technology empowerment and business promotion support, covering six major technology fields, including container / micro service, SaaS, big data, AI, video and intelligent edge.
Yuchengdong mentioned that, like developers, innovation has always been Huawei’s DNA, and the growth history of Huawei is an innovation history. Next, how will Huawei cloud be updated? Let’s look forward to its new developments.
