HUAWEI Restricts Technology Shipment to Russia

While the war between Ukraine and Russia continues, the number of sanctions against Russia continues to increase. In addition to AMD, Intel, NVIDIA, TSMC, numerous companies had made decisions for the country. Judging by the official announcement, HUAWEI is joining these technology giants.

HUAWEI has stopped all shipments of high-performance storage and server equipment to Russia. reported. But the decision is probably not due to a political disagreement with Russia’s actions. HUAWEI had serious difficulties in accessing US technology as part of the Sino-US trade wars. The company is now protecting itself, possibly to avoid facing similar sanctions again.

The current sanctions against HUAWEI are so severe that the company has begun to look for alternative revenue markets. Perhaps more importantly, it launched an in-house 3D chip development process to improve silicon performance in older generation manufacturing technologies.

While the US sanctions against Russia primarily aim to restrict military practices, the decisions taken by the companies negatively affect the end consumers. For example, AMD Ryzen or Intel Core products will not reach the country. HUAWEI, on the other hand, seems to suspend its technological partnership with Russia until the geopolitical climate calms down. The tech giant has previously built an ARM-based data center in Moscow and has taken steps to improve Russian infrastructure.

It has become increasingly difficult for Russia to scale and even maintain high-performance computing systems already deployed. If this difficult process continues, the country may have to resort to illegal means to stay technologically afloat.
