Dialogue with Zheng Yelai: At the time of the new infrastructure, cloud was the “black land” provided by Huawei
“The combination of 5G, cloud, and AI new technologies has created a powerful engine that injects new kinetic energy into the new infrastructure. The core of kinetic energy is intelligent upgrade.On the evening of May 25th, at the video cloud forum of “New Infrastructure for the 2020 Two Sessions Economics” held by Sauna.com, the vice president of Huawei, President of Huawei Cloud Business Zheng Ye and Sauna, Yenet exchanged his views onunderstanding.Zheng Yelai said that for a long time, the significance of the new infrastructure is very far-reaching, and now it is the right time for the country to introduce new infrastructure construction.In the era of digital economy, data is the new means of production, and computing power has become a new perfection. 5G, cloud, and AI will become representatives of advanced production tools.In all aspects of enterprise production, including logistics, supply chain, research and development, etc., the original method is no longer competent.Over the past years, Huawei has continuously used digital and intelligent methods to transform itself. These accumulations will be opened to the society, the government, and all walks of life in the form of cloud services in the future. Cloud is the “black land” that Huawei provides to the society.The new infrastructure has a long-term significance, and it is also the right time to launch the sauna night network: In April this year, the National Development and Reform Commission for the first time clarified the scope of the new infrastructure, mainly divided into three levels.In your opinion, what is the significance of new infrastructure at different scales?Zheng Yelai: As far as I know, the first level is information infrastructure, including 5G Internet of Things, industrial Internet, satellite Internet, etc. These are relatively “hard” infrastructures.In the past few years, Huawei has been planning to build and use such facilities.We have two bases in China, Ulan Qab and Gui’an, which have built new large-scale data centers. At the same time, we have built new data centers in North China, East China, and South China to include Huawei ‘s own and Huawei ‘s consumption.Business, as well as external government and enterprise customers to provide cloud services.The second scale of the new infrastructure is converged infrastructure, which means that digital and intelligent technologies are needed to transform thousands of industries.The early advancement of our country was informatization, but now we have to realize digital and intelligent upgrades.The third breakthrough of the new infrastructure is innovation infrastructure, which is to provide society with some public infrastructure to promote the entire scientific and technological research in our country, especially some breakthroughs in technological theory.For a long time, the significance of the new infrastructure has proved to be very far-reaching. It is also the right time for the country to introduce these new infrastructure constructions.Sauna Night Net: On the whole, what role can the new infrastructure bring to socio-economic development and transformation?Zheng Yelai: The “new” of the new infrastructure is in five aspects: First, it means that a new world will be generated, and future data will become the core asset of the digital world.Second, it refers to new kinetic energy. Huawei is an important participant in 5G, cloud, and AI infrastructure. The combination of 5G, cloud, AI, and the traditional economy will definitely cause chemical reactions, accelerate the flow of data, and drive the development of new economic alternatives.Third, it refers to new factors. In the traditional economic era, land and labor are important production factors. In the digital economy era, data is new production materials, and computing power has become a new growth. 5G, cloud, and AI will become advanced.Representative of production tools.Fourth, new services, cloud, AI, and 5G have previously done everything to improve production efficiency.AI will definitely change the industry’s production structure, bring about industrial transformation and smart upgrades, and new services such as smart manufacturing, smart transportation, smart energy, and smart finance will be widely promoted and expanded.Fifth, it is a new model, medical, education, retail, these industries are transferred from offline to online, from traditional IT to the cloud, the epidemic soon ends, people are used to this new way, thisChanges in this model will profoundly affect people’s behavior, and thus affect all aspects of life.Cloud is a service-oriented infrastructure, and the ability to update in real time will continue to be distributed to customers. As a president of Huawei’s cloud business, how do you view the relationship between cloud computing and artificial intelligence and other technologies in the new infrastructure?Zheng Yelai: Cloud is actually a carrier. First, it is an infrastructure and a service-oriented infrastructure. It provides computing, storage, network, container and other information infrastructure to thousands of banks in the form of services.Baiye.At the same time, it is also a carrier of capabilities. For example, the most typical one is artificial intelligence capabilities.For example, in the chemical fiber industry, together with our partners, we use machine vision to improve the quality detection capabilities of synthetic fibers, achieving a leap from only the last 100 meters to 1000 kilometers, and the detection efficiency has also increased by 80%.During the epidemic, Huawei also cooperated with the State Grid, deployed the Huawei Cloud Stack, and quickly launched the resumption power index monitoring system within a week of the launch. This system collects electricity data from the distribution network and combines some of the entire power system.Quick analysis of basic data, dynamic monitoring based on the power curve of electricity used in the history of the enterprise, intuitive and true feedback of the entire enterprise’s resumption of work.At present, this system has managed more than 5 nationwide.With 300 million smart meters, the data collected every day exceeds 10TB (1TB = 1024GB).There are still many examples of such empowerment.Sauna Nightnet: What is the significance of Shangyun for traditional industries and traditional enterprises?Zheng Yelai: In recent years, after the changes brought by big data, artificial intelligence and other technologies, we have discovered that all aspects of enterprise production, including logistics, supply chain, research and development, etc., can no longer be done in the original way.Basically, if a company spends a lot of energy to build the entire infrastructure, it will not add value to most users.At the same time, the traditional IT service approach is a database, an operating system, plus a middleware, this model that can cover the world, is no longer suitable for the requirements of such a digital and intelligent era in the future.Especially artificial intelligence services.Enterprises will find that your application needs to continue to iterate and update to obtain services including artificial intelligence and internal blockchain. You need to use new business models and cloud services to give these capabilities to our customers.Capabilities can be updated in real time and continuously synchronized to customers, so that customers do not need to pay attention to all information infrastructure construction. He only needs to pay attention to his supply chain, his customers, and his applications.Huawei’s artificial intelligence services can provide full-stack, all-scenario solutions, and provide AI capabilities in the form of cloud services.From going to the cloud to being open to the society, cloud services are Huawei’s “black land” sauna night network: What is the positioning of cloud business within Huawei?Zheng Yelai: The combination of new technologies such as 5G, cloud, and AI has created a powerful engine that injects new kinetic energy into the new infrastructure. The core of kinetic energy is intelligent upgrade.Cloud is the “black land” provided by Huawei for society. Huawei used to sell products and boxes, but now it is open in the form of services.Huawei is currently operating in 170 regions around the world. Huawei has been transforming itself through digital and intelligent means in the past years. These accumulations will be opened to the society, the government, and various industries in the form of cloud services in the future.Sauna Night Net: Can you talk about how Huawei has undergone digital and intelligent self-transformation?How effective is this transformation?Zheng Yelai: Over the past three years, Huawei has made a lot of changes, including Huawei itself as a “tenant” of our cloud service, and handed over all the infrastructure including the data center to Huawei Cloud.Consumers of hundreds of millions of Huawei phones worldwide, their cloud services also exist on Huawei Cloud.Huawei uses cloud services to build the entire company’s information infrastructure, and all units feel that the efficiency is high and their capabilities have been improved.The problem that couldn’t be solved in the past, usually called the “data chimney” problem, was solved naturally.Therefore, Huawei dissects based on its own case to complete an iteration of itself. Boots opens this sequential capability to the society in the form of cloud services. This is a natural result.Sauna, Ye Wang promised Cheng Zijiao editor Xu Chao proofreading Liu Baoqing
