On January 3, 2020, at the Enterprise Business and Cloud Business Conference, Ren Zhengfei (founder and CEO of Huawei) delivered a speech, which was recently released by the Huawei President’s office.
In his speech, Ren first proposed his goals and positioning of Huawei Cloud but the Huawei founder only pointed out the direction that Huawei Cloud needs to take to grow further.
Ren said, “We must do something not do something or not everything”.
By learning from the market giants such as Amazon and Microsoft, we must also accumulate Huawei’s 30-year network experience in the cloud service market and build new features for customers.
“We cannot simply take the same path as Alibaba and Amazon. We do not have so much money, they’ve inexhaustible money in the US stock market,” said Ren.
Huawei wants to build a leading ICT infrastructure and it must win in-network, computing and enterprise, and Huawei Cloud.
In his closing words, Ren emphasized that one is to reduce the combat surface, the other is to carefully figure out the combat structure/strategy. It’s necessary to be able to clarify the strategic policy of operations, to figure out what boats and bridges are used to cross the river, and not to run the enterprise with slogans.
Huawei Cloud is the cloud service brand of Huawei. Currently, Huawei Cloud has launched more than 200 services, developed more than 1.5 million developers and nearly 20,000 partners. By the end of June 2019, the HUAWEI CLOUD had 180+ cloud services and 180+ solutions.
Huawei launched first ever public diversified cluster computing solution in China
At Huawei Connect 2021 Conference, Huawei launched the first-ever public diversified cluster computing solution in China. Its application scenario includes AI computing centers, high-tech computing centers, and multicultural big data centers.
The company’s ICT product and solution line President Wang Tao informed that it’s first public diversified computing power service platform that can achieve energy efficiency PUE to provide a full computing usage effectiveness.
Computing power clusters provide large computing power to accelerate the latest technology adoption and industrial development in this digital economy epoch. Still, the low utilization rate of computing power and high threshold use are some problems current in the industry.
Huawei Cluster Computing Solution:
In order to tackle these problems, Huawei brought us the cluster computing solution with four major advanced properties compared with conventional data centers. Check the below-mentioned points.
- Diverse computing power scenarios: Huawei’s computing solution supports multiple scenarios such as AI, HPC, and big data that makes it a diverse computing platform.
- Fast Construction: With high-density complete cabinets and the prefabricated modular computer room, it reduces the construction period by 2 years to 6 months.
- Productive Computing Power Employment: Using the innovative and diverse computing power fusion scheduling, this computing solution has 50 – 80% productive employment.
- Convenient Power Use: Huawei’s cluster computing solution lessens the power acquisition from few weeks to few minutes.
Currently, the Wuhan Artificial Intelligence Computing Center project is using this cluster solution. Its main motive is to support the digital transformation of thousands of industries.
About Huawei Connect 2021:
On 23rd September, Huawei inaugurated the Huawei Full Connect 2021 Conference on the online platform under the theme “Deepening Digitalization”. At the event, it has introduced many advanced products of the company such as Virtual human- Yunsheng, 11 major scenarios based solutions, and so on.

Huawei releases Computer Vision Plan to help global AI Developers
At Huawei Connect 2018, Huawei released its AI strategy for the first time, focusing on AI basic research and collaboration with global research institutes and developers to build an AI ecosystem.
At Huawei Developer Conference (HDC) 2020 Cloud, Huawei showcased a holistic package of its base of research in computer vision and released the Computer Vision plan and invited global Artificial Intelligence (AI) experts to participate in the research.
The Atlas AI computing platform powered by Huawei Ascend AI processors will provide powerful computing to support this plan. The research results will be implemented in Huawei’s MindSpore, the all-scenario AI computing framework.
“Huawei has invested heavily in the basic research of computer vision with focus on data, knowledge, and models. In the past two years, Huawei has published more than 80 papers at leading AI conferences and journals such as CVPR, ICCV, NeurIPS, and ICLR. Huawei has made many groundbreaking achievements. These research results are opened to the industry in the forms of academic papers and source code. We invite global AI developers to research, develop, and deploy AI based on Huawei’s existing research results.” Said Tian Qi, Chief Scientist of Computer Vision, Noah’s Ark Laboratory at Huawei, and IEEE Fellow, shared the latest research progress in computer vision.
At the event, Professor Tian Qi introduced the computer Vision plan, which incorporates six sub-plans. They are the following:
- Data Iceberg Plan: Use a small amount of annotated data to unleash the potential of massive unannotated data and support model training in small sample scenarios.
- Data Magic Cube Plan: Use multi-modal quantification, alignment, and fusion strategies to enhance the learning capability of models in real-world scenarios.
- Model High-touching Plan: Build large models on the cloud to explore the performance limits of various vision tasks.
- Mode Slimming Plan: Build efficient computing models on the device side to help various chips complete the complex inference.
- Generic Vision Plan: Define vision pre-training tasks to build generalized vision models.
- V-R Integration Plan: Direct computer vision to real artificial intelligence via virtual-real integration.
“We welcome global AI researchers to join Huawei’s Vision Plan to innovate and explore the future together. The powerful computing capability of Huawei Atlas AI computing platform will accelerate the implementation of the Vision Plan. The research results will be fully implemented on Huawei’s all-scenario AI computing framework MindSpore and open to the industry, helping every AI developer.” Tian Qi added.
