BEIJING: Alibaba's cloud computing unit is making its Apsara operating system compatible with processors based on Arm, x86, RISC-V, among other architectures, the company has said. Alibaba Cloud is one of the fastest-growing businesses for the Chinese e-commerce giant and the world's fourth-largest public cloud service in the second half of 2020, according to market research firm IDC.

"The IT ecosystem was traditionally defined by chips, but cloud computing fundamentally changed that," Zhang Jianfeng, president of Alibaba Cloud's Intelligence group, said at the conference on Friday.

"A cloud operating system can standardise the computing power of server chips, special-purpose chips and other hardware, so whether the chip is based on x86, Arm, RISC-V or a hardware accelerator, the cloud computing offerings for customers are standardized and of high-quality," Jianfeng added.
