Huawei Technologies Co is continuing its drive for development of the OpenEuler operating system as part of its broader push to solve China's lack of homegrown operating systems for fundamental digital technologies.
The OpenEuler is designed for enterprise customers and can be used in devices such as servers, cloud computing and edge computing. Last year, Huawei donated the Euler operating system to the OpenAtom Foundation, a major open source foundation in China, to become an open-source OS.
Jiang Dayong, director of the OpenEuler Community, said the OpenEuler open source community has attracted more than 8,000 developers and 330 partners such as chip makers, software companies and hardware makers. At present, the cumulative installed capacity of OpenEuler is more than 1.3 million sets in industries such as finance, transportation and telecom, which has passed the ecological inflection point.
Jiang expected about 2 million sets of OpenEuler to be newly installed in 2022.
