The biggest winner of the Winter Olympics is Alibaba, which designed the torch and provided the cloud service
The Olympic Torch design comes from alibaba tmall genie team, by Alibaba research institute Li Jianye, Tmall genie designer Hu Er participated in the design, the whole team only seven people.Li Jianye: “I didn’t think much of it at first, but later I went to study the visual landscape of the Whole Winter Olympics. I saw the vast sky and earth in the main visual image from the ‘Map of Thousands of Rivers and Mountains’, including mountains, wind and snow, as well as man-made things like the Great Wall.The concept of “following nature and integrating man with nature” gives a direction to the design, and also sets the concept of the fluttering shape and the burning way of the ribbon edge, which is a poetic expression of The Olympics in China.However, “when the concept is confirmed, the challenge of turning it into a more concrete shape is very, very big. Every time I go to report it, I am almost rejected. Then I have to report a new proposal the next day, which is very tiring and difficult.”Later, a slightly curved leaf allowed the team to find a concrete way to realize the design concept.June 8, 2015, Alibaba Northern Cloud Base data port Zhangbei data Center project started in Zhangbei Xiaoertai Town.At that time, the Zhangbei Cloud data center was mainly established to bear the business pressure like Double 11.Unexpectedly, just over a month later, on July 31, 2015, at the 128th SESSION of the IOC held in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, Ioc President Thomas Bach announced that Beijing, China had won the right to host the 24th Winter Olympic Games in 2022.The two events, seemingly unrelated at the time, were joined.This is the origin of the Beijing Winter Cloud data center.Behind it, there is not only the extended meaning of green Olympics, which uses clean energy such as wind and solar to provide continuous computing power, but also the unique taste of science and technology Olympics as the first “Cloud Olympics” in history.At present, the core system of the Winter Olympic Games is 100% running on Aliyun. The Aliyun Winter Olympic Team has completed the last exercise of the Winter Olympic Games. It took 25 minutes to remove the risk parameters that may be encountered during the Winter Olympic Games.At the same time, it also verifies the stability and reliability of the technical infrastructure of the Winter Olympics.
