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).

In 2018, HUAWEI CLOUD officially launched the Hong Kong, Russia and Thailand Stations.

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.

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.
