Huawei counting on resellers in public cloud battleground


For Connect 2017 Huawei promised to focus on the practical implementation of its cloud plans, which it said centre on providing technology and services rather than trying to analyse customers' data itself.

"In the future, we predict there will be five major clouds in the world".

According to Huawei Consumer Business Group CEO Richard Yu, the company's mobile AI is made up of a combination of cloud AI and on-device AI. Huawei's public cloud partners will determine their own operating model.

The Chinese vendor says it will be able to partner with other cloud providers - rather than compete with them - because it wants to provide the underlying technology: the infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) and the platform-as-a-service (PaaS).

Huawei and Microsoft are expanding their cloud strategies by signing a strategic memorandum of understanding on cloud services.

Four cloud alliance partners were featured: BT, DT, Orange and Telefónica. Facing promising prospects in the global market, both companies will jointly carry out market expansion and marketing activities on schedule. Although Huawei is already providing Windows Server and Microsoft RDS for SQL Server, Microsoft at the moment is not detailing which specific enterprise apps will be coming to the HUAWEI CLOUD in the months ahead.

The donation follows Chance's other acts of charity this year. "I'm going to do what I can.' We need more students like this". The musician made the announcement at the Harold Washington Cultural Center, where a line of people waited to hear it.

Clement Teo, Ovum's principal analyst, at the time commented that Huawei's small United States cloud footprint meant it was missing out on a large revenue stream.

Huawei now has no official timeframe for rolling out the cloud services. We monetize from our own technologies.

Ping likened the company's cloud ambitions to alliances between airlines such as SkyTeam, Oneworld, and Star Alliance.

The firm said 12 automobile companies, including Volkswagen and Mercedes-Benz, as well as Philips, the Commercial and Industrial Bank of China (ICBC) and several government service platforms have chosen to use Huawei Cloud and cloud services offered via Huawei partners. "The signing of this MoU marks the start of strategic cooperation between the two companies", said Zheng Yelai, President of Huawei's Cloud BU and IT Product Line.
