US bans Chinese firms – including one linked to HPE’s China JV – for feeding tech to Beijing’s military

The US Dept of Commerce’s Bureau of Industry and Security has added 27 companies to its list of entities prohibited from doing business with the USA on grounds they threaten national security – and one of the firms is associated with HPE’s Chinese joint venture H3C.

A preliminary announcement of the bans lists a company named New H3C Semiconductor Technologies Co., Ltd on the grounds of its “support of the military modernization of the People’s Liberation Army.”

H3C is still the exclusive provider of HPE servers, storage, and associated technical services in China.
