Huawei announced the launch of its data infrastructure strategy, as well as the decision to open source its data virtualisation engine called HetuEngine at the 2019 Global Intelligent Data Infrastructure Forum hosted by Huawei in Shenzhen.

HetuEngine is Huawei’s proprietary data virtualisation engine designed to help customers and partners better connect data and applications. The open-source HetuEngine is called openHetu, and its launch is scheduled for June 2020. With an open-source kernel, developers will be able to customise this engine, including data source extensions and SQL execution policies, to allow fast interoperability and development.
