"Online paid medical treatment", "parking space guidance", "government affairs one-network office"... Various digital applications not only facilitate the majority of residents, but also witness the wisdom of the city and its future development prospects.

However, with the advancement of smart cities, each city has a different focus on digital applications, and as the foundation of the digital economy, it puts forward higher requirements and more personalized needs for cloud services. So is there an "optimal solution" for cities in the process of digital development?

Smart city development adapts to local conditions and takes the lead in consolidating the cloud foundation

According to the "China Digital Economy Development Report (2022)", the scale of China's digital economy will reach 2021.45 trillion yuan in 5, accounting for 39.8% of GDP. This shows the importance of developing a smart city digital economy.

For example, Beijing pointed out that it actively explores joint construction models such as artificial intelligence city service (promotion) centers, promotes artificial intelligence services to empower thousands of industries, and "one network unified management" urban governance intelligent collaboration.

Chongqing pointed out that the comprehensive management of cities is "unified management of one network", urban operation safety is "one-screen overview", integrated intelligent scheduling is "one-click linkage", and "one-end service" is convenient for the people and benefits the people.

According to incomplete statistics, more than 300 cities across the country have proposed to carry out smart city construction. However, in the rapid development of smart cities, many problems have also been exposed, such as the lack of top-level design, information islands abound, and multiple threats to information security.

Lv Benfu, vice president of the China National Innovation and Development Strategy Research Association, recently pointed out that the top-level design of smart city construction should be strengthened to achieve data interconnection, "In the past, there was a problem of scattered data in various departments in the construction process of smart city, and it was difficult to achieve effective information refinement, real-time feedback and accurate management due to the lack of unified institutional integration information." ”

Each city has different focuses on the development of smart cities, and with the deepening of construction, higher requirements are put forward for the cloud services of the foundation of smart cities. For example, Beijing pointed out that it is necessary to consolidate the cloud network and computing power base; The needs of "one-network unified management" in many other cities can only be realized on this basis.

"One City, One Cloud" creates a new benchmark, and the advantages of the cluster are fully displayed

In the process of smart city development, many cities have begun to explore their own paths, among which Wuhan's digital achievements are eye-catching. The 2023 Wuhan Municipal Government Work Report pointed out that in 2022, the innovation and breakthrough of the digital economy will be accelerated, 247 digital economy application scenarios will be launched, and more than 7,2500 small and medium-sized enterprises will "go to the cloud and use data to empower intelligence". The operating income of Wuhan's software and information technology service industry exceeded <> billion yuan.

It is worth noting that in 2022, the added value of the core industries of Wuhan's digital economy has reached about 10%. This has been achieved in advance in the "2025th Five-Year Plan" for the development of the digital economy issued by the State Council, and the added value of the core industries of the digital economy will account for 10% of GDP by <>.

Among them, Wuhan Cloud provides a solid foundation and reference value for its digital construction. It is understood that Wuhan Cloud "led by the Wuhan Municipal Government and jointly built by Wuhan Industrial Investment and Development Group and HUAWEI CLOUD, Wuhan Cloud has attracted upstream and downstream scientific and technological innovation enterprises and technical service enterprises to settle in and build a digital economy headquarters area." At the same time, it can form a linkage with Wuhan Artificial Intelligence Computing Center and Wuhan Supercomputing Center through Wuhan's 'one network', revitalize Wuhan's digital assets, strengthen digital service capabilities, form a cluster effect, and create a real urban intelligent twin."

As a typical case in the "one city, one cloud" model, Wuhan Cloud has obvious advantages. Its resource pools such as equipment are located in Wuhan, and data is stored locally, which has unparalleled advantages in security compared with the public cloud that uses non-local servers for national users or even private users.

Some people point out that the construction of cloud computing centers in a city or region can better serve local enterprises and institutions, reduce data transmission delays, improve response speeds, reduce investment costs of enterprises, promote digital transformation, and become an important engine for the rapid development of local economy.

In addition, with the establishment of the State Data Bureau in this institutional reform of the State Council, the importance of data elements is self-evident, and with the support of "cloud", it will undoubtedly accelerate the release of the potential of data elements, and play an important role in government digital governance, regional industry integration, and expansion of the digital economy industry.
