Huawei, the Chinese electronics giant, recently announced a new collaboration. The company will work with Sberbank, which is Russia’s largest bank, to develop cloud services in the country for businesses.
For those who don’t know, Huawei is much more than just a consumer electronics brand and is also well known in the telecommunications industry, being a leader in 5G networks. Through collaboration with Sberbank, Huawei plans to create a cloud computing service for Russian businesses.
The service is called SberCloud.Advanced and will target customers who are small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) and even start-ups. In other words, cloud services are not aimed directly at customers but at customers who could use their services in the country. These customers will have access to 37 new cloud services servers that will be integrated into a single streamlined system.

Wang Wei, Huawei’s chief executive officer in Russia, said the partnership with Sberbank should significantly advance Russia’s digital outlook. In other words, strengthen its presence in electronic commerce in a global sense. He also said that “this partnership is truly a milestone for the Russian cloud services market.” In recent years, Sberbank has gradually turned into an online service provider alongside its banking services. Thus, it marks a bold change, particularly from a state-run organization.
SberCloud General Manager Evgeny Kolbin said that “this is an exclusive offer for the market, consisting of interconnected cloud services that complement each other, giving the customer a unique practical approach to using these services, a variety of the most modern IT platforms, as well as integrated tools to monitor and control the cloud infrastructure. “
In simpler terms, the interconnectivity and platform provided is a major goal of the new cloud service in development. Its implications would be broad and the infrastructure provided would correspond to modern IT platforms, with advanced technology and support from Huawei.
