Win Together in the New Computing Era with Kunpeng
[Beijing, China, July 23, 2019] The Kunpeng Computing Industry Summit was held in Beijing today. Under the theme of "Unlock the New Computing Era with Kunpeng", the summit was jointly hosted by China Electronics Standardization Institute (CESI) and Huawei, and co-hosted by the Green Computing Consortium (GCC). With continuous, extensive accumulation in the computing space, Huawei has been actively fostering an open, collaborative, and win-win Kunpeng-based computing industry to embrace the era of diversified computing.
Driven by technological innovation, the computing industry has huge potential. After over 30 years of technological innovation, Huawei has laid a solid foundation in the connectivity field. In the future, Huawei will make laser-focused effort to build the intelligent computing industry, and bring ubiquitous intelligence through pervasive intelligent computing.
Eric Xu, Huawei's Rotating Chairman, said, "In the era of diversified computing, Huawei will work with industry partners to build a computing ecosystem around Kunpeng and provide leading IT infrastructure and applications based on the Kunpeng processors for various industries. Huawei will focus on technological innovation in the Kunpeng and Ascend processors, as well as Kunpeng and AI cloud services, provide open capabilities, and enable partners to jointly expand the computing industry."
To advance the Kunpeng industry ecosystem, Huawei plans to invest CNY3 billion in the next 5 years. Meanwhile, Huawei has built an online Kunpeng community that provides acceleration libraries, compilers, toolchains, and open-source operating systems, helping partners and developers quickly access capabilities regarding operating system, compiler, and application porting and optimization, together to build, share, and win in the new computing era.
