Chinese tech giant Huawei Technologies recently unveiled a new cloud database powered by artificial intelligence. According to Global Times, the move is set to accelerate the company’s full-scenario AI strategy and fire up competition with US rivals including Amazon, Microsoft and Oracle.
The database, called GaussDB, supports diversified scenarios such as private and public clouds and data services in sectors including finance, the internet, logistics and vehicles. The company also unveiled FusionStorage 8.0, a high-performing distributed storage to support enterprise applications.
According to the report, Huawei is challenging the database storage market, which has been dominated by US companies including Oracle and Microsoft.
“Our database products have been widely used in many countries and by various customers in many industries,” David Wang, executive director and chairman of the company’s investment review board, said at the launch event in Huawei's research and development (R&D) center in Beijing.
Huawei’s GaussDB and FusionInsight big data solutions have been used in 60 countries and regions, serving more than 1,500 customers.
