Huawei’s proud of its Public Cloud
HUAWEI, a Chinese multinational company, is set to provide cloud services to the sub-Saharan African region through a Public Cloud to be built and launched in South Africa.
This is another significant move by the leading global information and communications technology (ICT) solutions provider to accelerate its cloud business across the world.
Huawei will hold a launching ceremony for its first African station to be located in Joburg on Wednesday, at an event in Cape Town.
“Based on Huawei’s 30 years of ICT infrastructure experience and nearly 10 years of continuous research and development (R&D) in cloud computing technologies, Huawei Cloud can provide a onestop solution to large enterprises; addressing their challenges in digital and cloud transformation, as well as to small and medium-sized companies that aim to expand their business,” said Deng Tao, vice-president of the Huawei Cloud business unit (BU).
He was referring to the Huawei Cloud globalisation strategy.
Huawei has been providing cloud services to partners like Deutsche Telekom (Germany), Orange (France), Telefonica (Spain) and China Telecom.
Since it was established in March 2017, the Huawei Cloud BU has unveiled more than 120 cloud services in 18 major categories.
These cover more than 60 general solutions including SAP, high-performance computing (HPC), Internet of Things (IoT), Security, DevOps and more than 80 industry scenario solutions covering various sectors such as manufacturing, e-commerce, gaming, finance and the internet of vehicles (IoV).
Huawei Cloud officially launched its Hong Kong, Russia and Thailand stations this year.
By the end of September, Huawei Cloud had provided services in Asia Pacific and partner public cloud services in Europe and Latin America, outside of the Chinese market.
Huawei Cloud and Huawei partner public cloud are available in 14 countries and regions, and will be available in most of the major regions around the world by the end of this year.
This month, Huawei launched its comprehensive Artificial Intelligence (AI) strategy and full-stack, all-scenario AI portfolio, which is designed to provide powerful support for Huawei Cloud Enterprise (EI), an AI service platform for enterprises and governments, released in September 2017.
Jia Yongli, general manager of the EI product department of Huawei Cloud BU, said Huawei Cloud EI drives industry modernisation in three scenarios, including repetitive and high-volume work, tasks that require expert experience and work that needs multi-domain collaboration.
“These will help improve efficiency, pass on expertise, and break the limits of human intelligence,” Yongli said. |
