Im very happy to receive the best birthday present today. Yu Chengdong, who has just finished his 60-minute speech on stage, shyly expressed his wishes to the media.
Over the past 10 years, more than 5,000 scientific researchers have been invested in Hong Meng OS, which was released ahead of schedule due to the unexpected U.S. sanctions. Especially coincidental is that the day of release is Yu Chengdongs 50th birthday. Fifty knows the destiny of heaven, at this time Lao Yu has occasionally had the idea of retirement. But it is also because of the US sanctions that he feels there is something else to do: especially in the beginning of Hongmeng, the Internet of All Things has just begun.
At this time, Yuchengdong made a wish: to be a world-class OS, to be the next generation of stronger operating systems in the world.
Hongmeng OS is a premature infant
On August 9, 2019, Hongmeng OS, the self-developed operating system of Huawei, which has been widely spread, finally came into being. For a long time, the outside world has speculated that Huawei is doing self-research operating system, which has never been officially confirmed. Until March of this year (2019), Huawei faced the blockade of individual western countries led by the United States. Yu Chengdong first exposed that Huawei was developing its own operating system, which had been developed for seven years. At that time, however, Yu stressed that the self-developed operating system was Plan B, which would only be used in emergencies.
With the tense situation, Huawei was listed in the entity list in May, and Huaweis spare tire plan was exposed, and the rumor of Hongmeng operating system began to emerge. Since then, Ren Zhengfei or Huawei executives have been asked about Hongmeng Operating System in every media interview. But Ren Zhengfei said that the Hongmeng system was not created for mobile phone use, but for the interconnection of all things and the future of an operating system for the intelligent society.
At the MWC Shanghai Exhibition in June this year, Hu Houkun, Huaweis rotating chairman, said it was inconvenient to disclose his own operating system and that there was no clear time for its launch. But as Android and Google services have not been restored, the need for Huaweis self-developed operating system is even more urgent.
Now the Hongmeng operating system is actually a premature infant. According to the plan, it is not released now. Choosing to release at this time is more of a game. Huawei insiders said.
Although it is a premature baby, Hongmeng Operating System is well prepared.
Yu Chengdong said that Huawei has been involved in the field of operating systems since 10 years ago, and has invested 4,000-5,000 R&D teams, especially in recent years. Over the past decade, Huaweis total investment in R&D has reached 73 billion US dollars.
So Huawei spends more than 10% of its revenue on R&D every year. In the past ten years, the total R&D investment has reached 73 billion US dollars.
Great Leap Forward Bid-to-Bid Google Fuchsia
At the Huawei Developers Conference on August 9, Yu Chengdong officially released his new Scenario-Oriented distributed operating system, Hongmeng OS, based on micro-kernels, to the world. As Ren Zhengfei has always mentioned, the original intention of Hongmeng Operating System development and design is applicable to the Internet of Things, such as industrial control, unmanned driving and so on.
Yu Chengdong said that with the advent of the era of full-scene intelligence, Huawei believes that it needs to further enhance the cross-platform capability of the operating system to support full-scene, multi-device and platform operating systems.
According to reports, Hongmeng Operating System for the first time uses distributed architecture in terminals, which can achieve seamless collaborative experience across terminals. Defining delay engine and high-performance IPC technology can solve the problem of inadequate performance of existing systems, which reduces application response delay by 25.7%, and improves process communication efficiency by five times compared with existing systems.
In addition, Hongmeng Operating System adopts micro-kernel design, which can have stronger security and low latency. Multi-terminal development IDE can achieve one development, multi-terminal deployment and cross-terminal ecological sharing.
In June of this year, the official developer website of Fuchsia, Googles new generation of operating system, was launched, displaying relevant technical documents, so that developers can better participate in the development process. According to Fuchsia OS details revealed by Google executives: self-developed micro-kernel Zircon, open source, is a platform-wide cross-device operating system from IoT to PC.
Yu Chengdong also mentioned Google Fuchsia OS again in the release meeting. However, Yu said that Hongmeng OS was the first full-scene distributed OS based on micro-kernels in the world.
When will it be a world-class OS?
It is not difficult to be technologically advanced. It is rare to build an ecosystem.
At the media communication meeting of the semi-annual newspaper on July 30, Liang Hua, chairman of Huawei Company, said that Huawei, like the rotten plane, still needs to continue mending holes. Operators almost fill the hole, the second half is mainly consumer business fill hole.
For this hole, Yu Chengdong said that the biggest hole is ecology. For an operating system, building ecology may be the biggest barrier and barrier.
Previously, Microsoft Windows Phone failed because the ecosystem was not built.
For Hongmeng OS, how to attract developers has become more important. Yu said Huawei would give developers more divisions to motivate them.
Zhang Ping, president of Huawei Consumer Cloud Services, revealed that Huawei Yaoxing plans to upgrade to $1 billion in the future to help global developers develop new applications.
According to the route plan of Hongmeng OS, the first product with Hongmeng OS will be the Glorious Wisdom Screen. In 2020, Hongmeng 2.0 will be used in domestic PC, watch bracelet or locomotive products. In 2021, Hongmeng 3.0 will be launched to optimize hardware and software collaboration, and will be applied to speakers and headphones.
Yu Chengdong said that the most important thing is Hongmeng OS open source. In order to promote the ecological development of Hongmeng OS rapidly, Hongmeng OS will open source to global developers, promote the establishment of open source foundation, establish open source community, work with developers to promote the development of Hongmeng OS, and make suggestions on industrial or technological development through discussion.
Hongmeng OS is not Huaweis own. We hope to build the worlds leading and stronger operating system for the next generation. Yu Chengdong Hope Road.
Eight years after taking over Huaweis consumer business, Yu Chengdong made a new wish on his 50th birthday: Hongmeng Operating System should be a world-class OS.
