Cloud computing is booming. Changes in the tech landscape have allowed it to flourish and become a key part of the company’s IT strategy alongside some of its most prominent tech cousins, such as AI and IT. IoT.
The ability to connect to a wide variety of internet data sources in a fraction of a second was unthinkable even a few years ago. And the technology is now so well integrated that cloud-based operations are the lifeblood of tens of thousands of businesses around the world, fueling their growth and expansion.
Huawei is playing its role in the growth of cloud computing, creating an ecosystem to include partners of different types to explore innovative ways to deploy the cloud.
The growth of the cloud is being driven by the rapid increase in internet usage around the world, as Mark Chen, director of Huawei Cloud’s international affairs department, believes. The number of Internet users exceeds 480 million in Southeast Asia, 380 million in the Middle East and North Africa and 450 million in Latin America. Despite these figures, there are still vast opportunities to explore. Huawei Cloud is leveraging its technical advantage, know-how, and partner programs to provide support to internet companies who want to take advantage of the opportunity.
Gaming company NetEase has also been able to grow rapidly thanks to the robust cloud services provided by Huawei. The “Conqueror’s Blade” online game produced by NetEase runs entirely on Huawei Cloud nodes outside of China. These cloud service nodes are also deployed in Latin America to provide network coverage there.
Indeed, Huawei’s services cover the whole world. Huawei has deployed more than 2,500 content and POP delivery nodes around the world, as well as 45 Availability Zones offering more than 210 advanced services to accelerate the digital transformation of all industries. We are also proud to announce that Middle East services will launch in November.
While these are just a few of the many success stories, Huawei is looking to provide its partners with even more assistance both financially and technically as part of its HMS Ecosystem Support Program. Incentives include development and testing coupons, as well as cloud resources and migration tools.
