Ziguang Group received 150 billion yuan in investment and financing from China Development Bank and national funds
On March 28, China Development Bank and Huaxin Investment Management Co., Ltd. respectively signed the "Thirteenth Five-Year Plan for Development Financial Cooperation Agreement" and "Strategic Cooperation Agreement" with Ziguang Group. According to the agreement, during the "Thirteenth Five-Year Plan" period, China Development Bank will provide Ziguang Group with various financial products and services, and intends to support Ziguang Group's total financing of 100 billion yuan.
In addition, as the sole management agency of the National Integrated Circuit Industry Investment Fund, Huaxin Investment intends to invest no more than RMB 50 billion in Ziguang Group, with a focus on supporting Ziguang Group's development of IC-related business segments.
Two years ago, Ziguang Group had a total investment and financing cooperation of 30 billion yuan with CDB and Huaxin Investment.
This time Ziguang Group received investment and financing support of up to 150 billion yuan, which will inevitably accelerate the technological upgrade and core competitiveness of the integrated circuit industry, so that Ziguang continues to rapidly expand its industrial scale and has obtained strong support.
An innovative breakthrough in the field of integrated information as the core of the new generation of information and communication is a national strategy explicitly listed in the "13th Five-Year Plan" of the country. It is pointed out that comprehensive implementation of strategic emerging industry development plans, accelerated research and development and transformation of technologies such as artificial intelligence, integrated circuits, and fifth-generation mobile communications, and enlarge and strengthen industrial clusters.
As a leading enterprise in China's integrated circuit industry, Ziguang Group is committed to the entire industrial chain layout and market-oriented breakthrough of independent chips. In recent years, with the two-wheel drive strategy of independent innovation and international cooperation, Ziguang Group has completed the industrial structure from "core" to "cloud", ranking among the top three in the world in the field of mobile communication chips, and has invested in Wuhan, Nanjing and other places. He has invested heavily in building advanced memory and semiconductor manufacturing bases, determined to promote the strong rise of China's integrated circuit industry in global competition, and provide basic products, key technologies and services for China and the global Internet industry.
In Q4 2016, the external storage market continued to shrink, and the all-flash market grew by 60%.
Since the all-flash memory fire, I mentioned that the disk storage array felt that it was being hacked every time. There was no way. Huanghua treated this yesterday.
According to IDC data, the global enterprise storage system market fell by 6.7% in the fourth quarter of 2016, with a market size of $ 11.1 billion. Although the market size has decreased, the market demand is still growing. Shipment capacity in the quarter reached 52.4EB, with an annual growth rate of 18.3%.
Liz Conner, research manager of the IDC storage system department, said: "2016 was a year of major changes in the enterprise storage system market." The enterprise storage system market is generally under pressure, and many companies have begun to invest in new technology areas, such as Software-defined storage, cloud-based storage, all-flash and converged systems.Late Tang
The reduction in the size of the storage market is mainly due to the decline in market demand for traditional disk storage systems. As we all know, this market is very oil and water, and it can be said that it is a huge profit. Times dozens of times.
Although the overall market size has shrunk, all-flash arrays have lived up to expectations, and the market size has increased by 61.2% to $ 1.7 billion.
TOP5 in the global external storage market in the fourth quarter of 2016
This phenomenon is even more pronounced in Europe, the Middle East and Asia (EMEA).
Sales of external storage systems in the EMEA region decreased by 10.6%, of which disk system demand decreased by 37.9%. Hybrid arrays, hybrid storage containing disks and flash memory, fell 4.7% year-on-year.
In contrast, sales of all-flash arrays increased by 53.6% compared to the same period last year.
IDC research manager Silvia Cosso said in a statement: "EMEA external storage market revenue decline is mainly dragged down by traditional disk systems." But the impact of next-generation data centers is starting to show: all-flash arrays contribute four One-half of income, and one-fifth of total annual income. In addition, although hyper-convergence is currently only a small part, it is maintaining a rapid growth trend. "
In Q4 2016, Dell technology dominated the market with sales of 2.1 billion U.S. dollars, accounting for nearly a third of the overall market, mainly due to the acquisition of EMC last year.
HPE / H3C ranked second with IBM and NetApp respectively, with revenue of US $ 640 million, accounting for about 10%. Hitachi market revenue was $ 451 million, accounting for 7%.
