Inspur Group, a major cloud computing service provider in China, recently put into operation the country's first production line for high-end integrated circuit (IC) memory packaging and test, representing a significant step forward in the country's information technology industry.

Memory units are the "food" of the IT industry, and account for more than one-fourth of the output value of the IC industry. The IC memory industry is particularly important in the era of cloud computing.

At present, a few foreign companies monopolise the core IC technology, which is harmful to the development of China's IT industry and to its information security.
