On November 22, the Chinese Academy of Engineering was published in 2019 by the academician of the Chinese Academy of Engineering. By 2050, the Chairman of the Alibaba Technology Committee and the founder of Alibaba Cloud are the academician of the Engineering Management Department. In 2019, the Chinese Academy of Engineering conducted the 14th Academician and the 13th foreign academician to increase and select. A total of 75 academicians and 29 foreign academicians have been elected.
Wang Jian wants to be low-key, but the power is not allowed. In a press release, Alibaba said Mr. Wang was elected as a representative of the private-run technology leader, and the “It means that the scientific research force of the private enterprise gradually becomes an important part of the national scientific and technological capability”. Mr. wang’s elected academician is the best present for the founder of Alibaba Cloud, who is always a check-over shirt, who was born in October,1962, who had just finished his 57-year-old birthday last month.
Now, Wang Jian has long sealed the gods in Ali, but a decade ago, he suffered huge criticism at Alibaba. 11 years ago, Wang Jian, then executive vice president of Microsoft Research Asia, was hired by Jack Ma to take charge of cloud computing. Ali’s idea of cloud computing was first put forward by Jack Ma at Alibaba’s B2B executives’ meeting in June 2008. At that time, there was a great controversy and great opposition, but Ma Yun said at that time: “I don’t know what the specific use of cloud computing will be in the future, but what I know is that we must do it right away, cloud computing will certainly help small and medium-sized enterprises in the future.” So Peng Lei found it. Wang Jian. In September 2008, Wang Jian joined Alibaba. At the end of 2008, Wang Jian first created a data-centric cloud computing architecture, which was identified as Feitian’s architecture.
The reason why it is called Feitian, Wang Jian later explained: “in Chinese mythology, Feitian is actually a god who brings happiness and auspiciousness, which is also our awe of this technology and the future.” At the same time, this God needs a clean water environment to grow well. Hangzhou has a unique river and a West Lake, which may grow best here. This is the reason why we may do this, but at that time, cloud computing is far from becoming everyone’s will and everyone’s real action. So such a god was raised in this place. ”
At that time, under the leadership of Wang Jian, Alibaba began a vigorous “go to IOE”, which also triggered a lot of controversy in the industry. A lot of criticism comes from inside, from executives to employees are questioning Wang Jian’s voice, some people say he is a liar, some people doubt that he can not write code, some people question a philosophy does not understand cloud computing. As a result, he also won the title of “Ali outsider”. A video of Wang Jian wiping tears at Ariyun’s annual meeting was placed in the Dream Maker documentary and in the promotional film of Alibaba’s 20th anniversary annual meeting.
How proud Wang Jian is now, how much he suffered in that year.
But there’s a key, Mr. Ma. At that time, Mr. Ma has been the one who has been the most powerful man in the face of a variety of disputes from inside and outside. Without the trust of Mr. Ma, there may be no current Alibaba Cloud, and there’s no Wang Jian’s position. No one has a pair, and both have been regarded as a liar.
In 2017, in the Science and Technology Award of the China Electronics Society, the “Core Technology and Industrialization of Feitian Cloud Operating System” project led by Alibaba Cloud is awarded the special prize of the Science and Technology Progress Award, which is the first special prize issued for the first time in the first 15 years of the award. The current Alibaba Cloud is the third largest in the world, with the first largest cloud computing vendor in the country, next to Amazon and Microsoft. The two-year-old is the most exciting and most tense of Alibaba Cloud, because the massive data on the same day is the biggest practice of Alibaba Cloud. Now, Wang Jian, also retired to the second line, became the chairman of the Alibaba Technical Committee, mainly in the busy city brain project, He wants to move the city to the cloud. In the past few years, every time this voice is hoarse, the people who wear the check shirt all year come out to give a speech, there will be some very sharp and time-free speech, the product has a lot of inspiration. Of course, there are many people who can’t understand what he said.
“Yunqi town is not an administrative concept, Yunqi town is not a town, Zhongguancun is not a village,” he said at the Yunqi conference in 2015. This town is in the West Lake District, do not speak Chinese people do not know what the West Lake District is, even those who speak Chinese do not know what the West Lake District is like. I said Xihu District is the Haidian District of Beijing, what is the only difference? The lake of Haidian is gone, and the lake of West Lake is still there. What we want to pursue is a natural environment. “
