Chinese manufacturer Huawei has launched its AI-native database GaussDB, alongside distributed storage solution FusionStorage 8.0. The aim of the launch, according to the company, is to "redefine data infrastructure through a data and intelligence" strategy.

According to the company, GaussDB has embedded AI capabilities, which make self-tuning, self-diagnosis, and self-healing possible. It supports multiple deployment scenarios, including local deployment and deployment on private or public clouds.

Speaking of the anticipated impact of the products, Huawei executive director of the board and president of ICT strategy and marketing David Wang, said: "Humanity is entering the age of an intelligent world. Data is the new factor of production, and intelligence the new productivity. Heterogeneous, intelligent, and converged databases will become the key data infrastructure of the financial, government, and telecoms industries.

"AI-native database GaussDB will help enhance Huawei Cloud's capabilities and fully unleash the power of diversified computing, which includes x86, ARM, GPU, and NPU. We aim to continuously push our AI strategy forward and foster a complete computing ecosystem."

According to a statement at the launch event, Wang stated the company's commitment to "advancing intelligent industries by innovating together with customers and partners and building a data industry ecosystem on the principles of openness, collaboration, and shared success."

News of the launch comes the same week in which president of the United States, Donald Trump, declared a national emergency, giving the government power to ban solutions and services from – unnamed – "foreign adversaries" considered to pose a risk to national security. Huawei responded by stating its commitment to communication and "product security."
