HUAWEI CLOUD

Another Jigsaw Puzzle Piece of Globalization

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 manufacturing, e-commerce, gaming, finance and Internet of Vehicles (IoV).

Huawei Cloud and Huawei partner public cloud are available in 14 countries and regions, and will be available in most of major the regions around the world by end of 2018.

Referring to globalisation strategy, Deng Tao, Vice President of Huawei Cloud BU said, HUAWEI CLOUD was globalised since its inception because Huawei had been providing its products and technologies in the form of cloud services to partners like Deutsche Telekom (Germany), Orange (France), Telefonica (Spain) and China Telecom.

“Based on Huawei’s 30 years of ICT infrastructure experience and nearly 10 years of continuous R&D in cloud computing technologies, Huawei Cloud can provide a one-stop 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.” Deng said.

From AI to EI

To turn AI into a practical reality, Huawei come up with the concept of EI. The company believes that a cloud will prosper only when it helps customers create value on an ongoing basis.

Talking about how to combine industry insight with AI, Jia Yongli; General Manager of EI Product Department of Huawei Cloud BU said, Huawei Cloud EI is a scenarios-based service.

“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,” according to Jia.

On April 17, 2018, Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF), the world’s top open source community in cloud technology, officially announced Huawei election to the Technical Oversight Committee (TOC), making Huawei the first Asian company to be admitted into the CNCF TOC. In May, HUAWEI CLOUD became an SAP-certified platform for deploying SAP HANA and SAP NetWeaver.

Huawei predicted that there would be five major cloud platforms in the world and promised that it would be one of those five. HUAWEI CLOUD is positioned to be an open, cooperative, mutually-beneficial and customer-centric ecosystem that creates values. The needs of enterprises in business development have become more complex and diverse, as they need not only to develop new applications on public clouds but also migrate some of their traditional services to public clouds, while continuing to provide support for these services. Huawei Cloud is committed to working with partners to build sustainable partnerships that can lead to an open ecosystem to better meet customers’ needs.

(Bloomberg) — Amazon.com Inc. agreed to sell some of its Chinese cloud assets to its local partner but said it's committed to a domestic market for internet-based computing that could be worth $30 billion.
Beijing Sinnet Technology Co. will buy servers and other unspecified "operational assets" in the country's capital from Amazon Web Services for as much as 2 billion yuan ($302 million), it said in a filing to the Shenzhen stock exchange. The sale is intended to comply with government regulations and improve service, it said.
Amazon's business in China has been hollowed out by the rise of local rival Alibaba Group Holding Ltd., which has come to dominate e-commerce and is expanding in cloud computing with new data centers. Amazon, the global leader in internet computing, is vying for a slice of domestic spending on cloud services and gear that IDC estimates will reach $30 billion by 2021. But the U.S. company has to deal with laws introduced this year that mandate the storage of data within the country and bolster government control over the movement of information.
On Tuesday, the e-commerce giant rejected media reports tying its asset sale to an imminent departure from the Chinese market. It said instead it was selling hardware to comply with laws that forbid ownership or operation of certain types of cloud technology.
"AWS did not sell its business in China and remains fully committed," the company said in an emailed statement. "We're

Cloud computing companies in the U.S. could lose more than $10 billion by 2020 as a result of the Trump administration's reputation regarding data privacy, according to Swiss hosting company Artmotion.
A whitepaper published by Artmotion suggests that growth rate in U.S. cloud revenue relative to the rest of the world will decline significantly more than previously forecast by IDC.

IDC's Worldwide Public Cloud Services Spending Guide predicts that the U.S. will account for 60 percent of cloud revenue worldwide to 2020. The same research, however, suggests revenue growth in the U.S. will be lower than that in all seven other regions analyzed by IDC, and according to Artmotion does not take into account the sharply falling confidence businesses have in the capacity of U.S. companies to protect the privacy of data in the cloud.
"While these figures may be concerning for U.S. service providers already, they don't take full account of the scale of the disapproval of President Trump's actions since taking office," according to Mateo Meier, CEO of Artmotion.
Artmotion's own research shows that half of U.S. and U.K. citizens feel online data privacy is less secure under President Trump. Further, 24 percent are most concerned about their own government, while only 20 percent consider the Russian government most concerning, and 15 percent fear the Chinese government. Both Russia and
