HUAWEI CLOUD and Microsoft Apps Embark on New Strategic Cooperation

HUAWEI CLOUD and Microsoft Apps Embark on New Strategic Cooperation”

"Huawei will work with our partners to build one of those five clouds, and we've got the technology and know-how to do it".

The goal is said to be to provide the "optimal experience of cloud services for enterprises" and to help them implement digital transformation, which isn't exactly ground-breaking, but it does highlight the growing importance of partnerships between the major cloud players.

We are told that "joint innovation by the two parties provide customers with trusted hosting and various enterprise applications as a service", with promising global business prospects emboldening both players to "jointly carry out market expansion and marketing activities on schedule".

We understand Huawei has developed its own Kirin 970 processor/chip set for AI on a smartphone.

Noting that "cloud has become a major cornerstone of the IT world", Ping said that Huawei is also committed to long-term investment in public cloud, which will largely be directed to, "building a hybrid cloud addressing the needs of both governments and enterprises".

Huawei and Microsoft are expanding their cloud strategies by signing a strategic memorandum of understanding on cloud services. "Huawei cloud does not monetize data or coerce customers to exchange data with Huawei".

Opening the Huawei Connect customer event in Shanghai today, acting CEO Guo Ping said the company believed the cloud business would evolve along similar lines to airlines, with the formation of global alliances of service providers.

This year's theme is "Grow with the Cloud", with Huawei "exploring how to realise new growth through digital transformation together with its customers and partners at this global platform for open collaboration".

"Huawei is not a great talker about ideas, but we are a great doer in making them happen", he said.

Huawei has laid out its bid to kick-start the next generation of cloud computing.

Huawei now has no official timeframe for rolling out the cloud services. It then started working with enterprises that wanted to build clouds.

In July, Microsoft also detailed plans to turn Azure into an artificial intelligence (AI) cloud.

Huawei is similarly focused on AI, earlier this week unveiling its Kirin 970 chipset with built-in AI and calling it the "future of smartphones". It has a dedicated neural processing unit (NPU), and was built using a 10nm advanced process with 5.5 billion transistors contained in an area of just one square centimetre.

In particular, the company claimed that its cloud technology would emphasise security. As ever, Huawei is assiduous about its partners. Huawei Cloud, he said, "will open up the world to its users".
