 China Central Television (CCTV) - A leading information technology company on Wednesday unveiled China's first cloud computer, a major breakthrough for China's cloud computing.

The computer, developed by the Unisplendour Corporation Limited of Tsinghua University (UNIS), has a dynamically scalable function in computing power and storage capacity in accordance with customer requirements, according to a statement from the company.

"The cloud computer is a carrier of cloud computing. Most companies just provide partial resolution in terms of cloud computing, but we integrate the cloud computing technology and big data into one computer to satisfy our customers," said Zhang Lei, chief executive of Unisplendour Software System Co., Ltd..

The number of the computer's CPU can be expanded to 65,535 and its storage space can reach up to 85 PB bytes, with a throughput of 1.2 GB bytes per second, according to the statement.

It differs from personal computers and supercomputers in terms of distributed architecture and combines virtualization technology of cloud computing and computing resources with a lower cost.

The computer's software consists of virtualization, big data and automatically-deployed modules, all with independent intellectual property rights, the statement said.

The computer's completely open nature allows high compatibility with various general hardware and industry application software, it added.

"To complete a project in the past needed scores of people for as long as one year, but now with the help of the cloud computer, one person can finish the same project in couple of hours, raising efficiency by 80 percent to 90 percent," said Zhang.

Cloud computing generally refers to services, including software and storage, accessed by users through the Internet.
