Guo Wei, Chairman and President of Digital China Group, said: Infrastructure construction has always been a driving force for the unity and development of nations and civilizations since ancient times. Today’s “new infrastructure” is how to use modern digital technology to make the entire society more closely connected. In the future, cloud and digital technologies will play a key role in promoting the construction of a “manufacturing power”, “quality power”, and “digital power”. At the same time, in the process of global competition, achieving a global leader in computing power while simultaneously taking into account high efficiency and low cost will also be an important manifestation of core competitiveness. Since its establishment in 2000, “Digital China” has been the original aspiration and mission of Digital China. At present, Digital China has strong competitiveness in all aspects of the operation of supercomputing centers. It has also been used for finance, agriculture, government, etc. Many industries provide mature solutions and services. In the face of major changes unseen in a century in the digital age, Digital China hopes to work with partners to build a more powerful supercomputing center and cooperate in more regions to jointly promote the construction of Digital China.
As one of the largest listed companies in the cultural media sector in the domestic A-share market, after years of development, Century Huatong has not only continued to deepen the development and distribution of Internet games at home and abroad, but also closely followed the development of cutting-edge technology and technology in the digital age, and launched cloud games, Frontier exploration and layout in cultural industry chain and other fields. In 2020, Century Huatong will invest in Shanghai Longrui to actively develop new digital infrastructure and a new track. At present, Century Huatong has joined hands with the Songjiang District Government of Shanghai and Tencent to build Tencent’s Yangtze River Delta artificial intelligence supercomputing center and industrial base complex, providing professional cloud computing based on strong data processing and storage capabilities and Tencent’s leading artificial intelligence capabilities At the same time of serving, it has also jointly promoted the construction of the AI industry Internet innovation and entrepreneurship ecosystem, which has become an important force in the field of “digital new infrastructure”.
Wang Ji, CEO of Century Huatong, said in his speech that digital applications have become the “new normal” of the national economy and life, and the supercomputing center has become the “hydropower and coal” necessary for ordinary people’s daily life. As a “light asset” game company, Century Huatong hopes to align with the country’s “pulse”, “reloading” new infrastructure construction, and strive to become an industry leader in the digital economy.
Wang Ji emphasized that on the road to a smart future, he is very pleased to have the help of Digital China, China’s leading cloud and digital service provider partner, with the help of the supercomputing center of Century Huatong as the carrier, combined with the leading technology of Digital China With advantages and rich experience in cloud and digital services, the two parties will jointly build a complete supercomputing center industrial chain. Wang Ji predicts that the future strategic cooperation with Digital China is expected to revolutionize supercomputing technology and open up a new lifestyle of “walking through the cloud” for everyone.
Riding the clouds to open up a new future for the “new infrastructure”
It is precisely based on the complementary advantages of the two parties in the field of cloud computing and “new infrastructure” that gave birth to an ecological win-win combination of strong and powerful. In the future, the two parties will work together in multiple dimensions to launch new cooperation arrangements and practical explorations.
In terms of the iterative construction of supercomputing centers, Digital China will organically integrate its rich experience and full-stack capabilities in the construction and operation of proprietary clouds and new cloud-based supercomputing centers with the large supercomputing centers under Century Huatong.
