A Chinese industrial bank has joined Huawei openGauss open-source database community as a company contributor. Industrial Bank will actively participate in open source openGauss source code contributions. The latest joining will ensure will help openGauss to improve its attributes for the financial industry.

It will also resolve issues such as DB4AI, resource pooling, and heterogeneous database compatibility. Simultaneously, the new member could also organize in-depth technical discussions and practical innovations with other community contributors to introduce new features for better business architecture, and help in the implementation of openGauss in the financial industry.

During Huawei Connect 2019, Huawei launched its own database management system “GaussDB” with the Mulan PSL v2. In 2020, Huawei made its open-source code “openGauss”.

According to Huawei, The openGauss kernel was derived from PostgreSQL and focused on building advanced features for architecture, transactions, and storage engines with performance optimization. It is deeply optimized for ARM architecture and retains compatibility with x86 architecture.

Below you can check openGauss features:

  • Multi-core architecture for concurrency control, NUMA-aware storage engines, and SQL-Bypass (for intelligent path selection). openGauss delivers up to 1.5 million TPMC in the 128-cores scenario with 2 Kunpeng processors.
  • Quick failover with a recovery time objective (RTO) of less than 10s and whole stage data protection for security and reliability.
  • Intelligent parameter tuning, slow SQL diagnosis, multi-dimensional performance self-monitoring, and online SQL execution prediction for significantly simplified O&M.

Huawei is also an active contributor to open-source communities and projects. Developers from Huawei currently are holding more than 200 roles in major open-source communities, including TSC, PMC, PTL, Maintainer, and Committer. Huawei also has board member representatives for more than 10 open-source foundations and serves on many projects.

Huawei is building its own semiconductor ecosystem: Report

In the past year, Huawei ramped up efforts to explore the semiconductor world to build its own semiconductor ecosystem, reveals a new report.

Digitimes reports, Huawei is making a low-key entry into multiple semiconductor segments to build its own semiconductor ecosystem. In order to do so, Huawei is now making long-term agreements with equipment and materials suppliers from Taiwan. This is quite interesting development but there are no specific details revealed about the suppliers.

Ban and Progress:

In 2019, Huawei was added to U.S. Entity List, a program to ban the company. This restricts Huawei from accessing core U.S.-made technologies. The ban severely affected various businesses including telecom and smartphones.

In 2020, the U.S. blocked Huawei’s reach for chipset and restricted the ability to print designs with companies such as TSMC. This led Huawei to drop manufacturing of new Kirin smartphone chipsets.

That’s not it, US regime also tightened curbs on the Chinese semiconductor industry. In October this year, major Chinese companies were banned by the Biden administration citing national security risks.

Huawei is Preparing:

Despite being attacked, Huawei is continuously ramping up research and development on various technologies. Huawei increased R&D spending to 142.7 billion yuan ($20.65 billion) last year, which is equal to 22.4% of its total revenue.

The Chinese tech maker is expanding partnerships with other home ground semiconductor players and building producing facilities in various areas including – Qingdao, Beijing, and Wuhan.

It is a key base for developing silicon carbide chips, a type of power semiconductor that future cars will need in massive quantities.

On the flip side, Huawei is recruiting new global talent specialized in developing power semiconductors, in which, German chipmaker Infineon Technologies is the top player. Adding to this, Huawei is also looking for experts in central processing unit architecture.

Coming to China, Huawei is hiring processor chips, radio frequency components, and analog chips, as well as chip-packaging design and testing experts in Xi’an, Chengdu, Nanjing, Shanghai, Wuhan, Hangzhou, and Shenzhen.

A report from NikkeiAsia reveals that Huawei is focusing on breakthroughs and not the cost of the breakthrough itself.

Currently, the aim is to progress in the production of core chips for telecom base stations, surveillance cameras, automotive applications, and smartphones as soon as possible. Huawei is also pursuing rebuilding its whole supply chain. This includes manufacturing, packaging, and stacking, as well as chipmaking materials and equipment.

Analysts:

However, Industry analysts have their own opinion on this matter.

“It’s almost impossible that a complete semiconductor supply chain could be built all by one country without foreign help. It may need some political negotiations after all,” said Bernstein Research’s Li.

Conclusion:

The question is when Huawei will complete its own chipset ecosystem. The answer to that question depends on time because it’s a crucial element in the research and development of any technology. As for now, none of this information has been confirmed by Huawei via official channels.
