Alibaba is working to make its Apsara cloud OS compatible with a variety of architectures in an effort to future-proof it.
Alibaba started as an online marketplace, but has grown to be one of the biggest companies in the world. The company is a leader in AI, e-commerce and, increasingly, the cloud market.
The company is working on its Apsara cloud OS, and is learning from the challenges its fellow Chinese firms have faced. Huawei, ZTE and Xiaomi have all experienced setbacks as a result of sanctions by the US government and its allies. Huawei, in particular, has struggled due to being cut off from the semiconductors it relied on for its products.
