The data center virtualization technology project from Jinan Yinquan Technology, a wholly owned subsidiary of China VoIP & Digital Telecom, has received $73,000 from Shandong Economic and Information Technology Committee to finance energy-saving industrial technology projects in the Shandong Province in 2009.
Recognizing the need to conserve energy, the Chinese government has taken many initiatives to preserve the energy sources and encourage their wise usage. The country launched a comprehensive energy saving plan years ago that stretches till 2020.
CVDT believes that with the government’s support, industrializing virtualization in China will be expedited. Virtualization is fast transforming the IT landscape and fundamentally changing the way people compute. The current x86 computer hardware was originally designed to run only a single operating system and a single application. Virtualization makes it possible to run multiple operating systems and multiple applications on the same computer at the same time and breaks that boundary.
Li Kunwu, chairman and chief executive officer of CVDT, pleased with the government’s recognition, said, “The virtualization technology solution provided by Yinquan is in full compliance with the conservation-oriented society and Green IT concepts advocated by the country. Yinquan maintains a leading position in virtualization technology, and the government’s endorsement will accelerate our expansion in the virtualization market in 2009. I believe Yinquan should have bright growth prospects in virtualization.”
Various industries and professionals around the world make use of virtualization to save time and energy. This can benefit anyone who uses a computer and that’s the reason the Chinese government has announced such huge funding to encourage this technology.
Recently, the Shandong Virtualization Technology Promotion and Application Center, developed by Jinan Yinquan Technology, was inaugurated in the high tech region of China’s Jinan Province amid much celebration. The Chinese government had earmarked the center as the sole virtualization technology research, development and marketing unit in the country. Attendees included several prominent members of the government and the President of Vmware (News - Alert).
