Adobe and Google Announce a Digital Type Breakthrough
|By Business Wire
|July 15, 2014 06:01 PM EDT
Adobe (NASDAQ: ADBE) today announced the release of Source
Han Sans, an open source typeface supporting Japanese, Chinese and
Korean, as well as Latin, Greek and Cyrillic alphabets. It was developed
in collaboration with Adobe’s key partner Google and contracted foundry
partners across East Asia (Changzhou SinoType, Iwata Corporation, and
Sandoll Communication). Source Han Sans marks a record-breaking typeface
in terms of size, scale, complexity and support for Japanese, Chinese
and Korean all within the same font family. It provides designers and
developers creating content for international audiences one uniform font
to use in print and Web files no matter the language - eliminating the
need to license multiple fonts.
First Open Source Typeface to Support Chinese, Japanese and Korean in
While the Japanese kanji, Chinese hanzi and Korean hanja characters
share historical derivation, the typefaces have typically been
individually created to support each language, with separate sets for
Traditional and Simplified Chinese. Source Han Sans marks the first open
source font family to support each of the languages, as well as regional
variants, within the same font family, supporting languages spoken by
1.5 billion people.
Source Han Sans supports Japanese, Traditional Chinese (including
Taiwan and Hong Kong SAR), Simplified Chinese, and Korean (with hangul
syllables), as well as Greek, Latin and Cyrillic alphabets.
Source Han Sans is available in seven weights in full fonts, as well
as region-specific subsets, equaling a total of 42 typefaces, designed
for screen devices and print.
Web Leaders Collaborate on Largest-Ever Open Source Font
In order to account for all regional variations, Adobe, in collaboration
with Google and foundry partners Changzhou SinoType, Iwata Corporation,
and Sandoll Communication, designed 65,535 glyphs for each font, the
maximum number for the OpenType format. The development and design took
more than three years, with a team of more than 100 people, motivated by
a common goal to help unify the international design and development
Dr. Ken Lunde, senior computer scientist, CJKV Type Development, Adobe
"Before today, designers and developers building websites or
applications intended to support or display content in Chinese,
Japanese, and Korean would need to license multiple fonts of different
designs in order to convey correct content to their target audiences -
this is both a time-intensive and cost-ineffective process. The
development of Source Han Sans was the most extensive and complex in our
30 years of font development at Adobe, and would not have been feasible
without the collaboration of Google and our foundry partners. We are
incredibly pleased to introduce a typeface that streamlines the workflow
for content creators as well as enriches the experience of users,
particularly those in East Asia."
Linus Upson, VP, engineering at Google
"We're excited to release Noto Sans CJK* — a new open source font for
Chinese, Japanese, and Korean. This new addition to the Noto family is a
major step towards complete coverage of all languages. Noto Sans CJK is
the result of a joint development by Adobe, Google, and our in-country
foundry partners, and provides harmonious text for Chrome OS and many
other Google products."
* Google is releasing this font under the name Noto
Sans CJK as part of their Noto pan-Unicode font family.
Source Han Sans is available for immediate desktop use via Adobe Typekit

Fact: storage performance problems have only gotten more complicated, as applications not only have become largely virtualized, but also have moved to cloud-based infrastructures. Storage performance in virtualized environments isn’t just about IOPS anymore. Instead, you need to guarantee performance for individual VMs, helping applications maintain performance as the number of VMs continues to go up in real time.
