Huawei's distributed OS system – Hong Meng, is using blockchain technology?

At the beginning of the world, it began in Hongmeng. In the past, Hong Meng was only a mythological image, but Huawei gave another meaning to “Hong Meng”.

On August 9th, Huawei held the 2019 Huawei Developer Conference in Dongguan Songshan Lake Headquarters, officially releasing a new distributed operating system: Hongmeng!

Yu Chengdong, CEO of Huawei Consumer Business and Managing Director of Huawei Technologies Co., Ltd., delivered a keynote speech titled “New Experience and New Ecology in the Whole Scene Era” . Yu Chengdong introduced that Hongmeng OS is a distributed operating system for the whole scene based on microkernel. It will serve as a product of Huawei's arrival in the era of full scene experience.

It is worth noting that in the introduction of Yu Chengdong, the word “distributed” was mentioned dozens of times.

"Distributed" is no stranger to people who understand the blockchain. It is one of the cores of blockchain technology. In other words, does Huawei's Hongmeng system also adopt blockchain technology?
In fact, from the introduction of Yu Chengdong, the “distributed” in the distributed operating system of Hongmeng refers to the distributed architecture, which can realize the hardware calling across terminals and enable the mutual cooperation and seamless coordination between the terminals.

So what is the "distributed" of the blockchain?

The first thing to understand is what is the blockchain.

In a narrow sense, a blockchain is a chained data structure in which data blocks are sequentially connected in a chronological order, and cryptographically guaranteed non-tamperable and unforgeable distributed ledgers.

Broadly speaking, blockchain is a distributed infrastructure model that combines distributed data storage, point-to-point transmission, consensus mechanism, and encryption algorithms.

The distribution in the blockchain can be understood from the following three aspects:

1. Distributed information distribution and transmission : Each node participating in the system can initiate information, and each participating node can exchange information with neighboring nodes, and publicly transmit valuable information throughout the network.

Second, distributed accounting : each participating system node can complete the workload setting according to the consensus mechanism, the database can be obtained, and the records can be traced back, but can not be falsified.

Third, distributed storage : After distributed accounting, adding a timestamp to the processing of recorded information will generate block data. After the network is broadcast, it will be formed in the blockchain, and each node can choose to store it completely. The data is part of the data. Moreover, each node can have a complete real-time update of local data storage.

Therefore, Huawei's Hongmeng distributed operating system does not use blockchain technology . Although Hongmeng did not adopt blockchain technology, the attention of blockchain has been heating up day by day. Nowadays, both listed companies and Internet giants have already early Into the blockchain industry, it has gradually begun to apply to its own industrial system. I believe that in the near future, the blockchain will open a new era!

In addition, Yu Chengdong also announced a number of data sets in the conference. In the context of trade wars, Huawei still maintained rapid growth, and the global mobile phone market share ranked second in the world. Yu Chengdong, who has always been surprisingly speaking, is very "real sincerity": "But this year it will become the world's number one, I am afraid I can't do it."

Come on, Huawei! Come on, Hong Meng!
