In the application-centric Cloud 3.0 era, Huawei brilliantly combines mission-critical server, storage consolidation, Cloud Fabric SDN, modular data center, and other IT solutions into one highly flexible cloud data center platform. The highly anticipated offering enables carriers to fully realize unified resource management, elastic expansion, convergence, and visualized O&M in services, operations, infrastructures, and networks at their data centers. Huawei's cloud data center solutions lead the interconnection of public and private clouds, support deployment of multiple clouds, allow cross-cloud service migration, and provide fully stackable public cloud builds. These and other draws smash the silo-like structure of conventional IT and empower carriers with more choices in their cloud transformations. With the revitalized deployment strategies, telcos become strategically positioned as enablers of the digital economy.
At the conference, Huawei shared its successful practices in cloud migration for SAP, development of enterprise-class private cloud applications with Accenture, and the results of joint innovations with other partners in building a sustainable cloud ecosystem. Huawei is a strong advocator of standardizing interface architectures of cloud platforms and contributes significantly in this regard to OpenStack, Hadoop, Spark, and other open source communities. In January 2016, Huawei was elected as the OpenStack board of directors, affirming the technological powerhouse's contributions to the community. Zheng Yelai, President of Huawei IT Product Line had this to say, "Huawei continues to openly and enthusiastically build an everybody-wins cloud ecosystem with partners. Through continuous innovations and the results of focused efforts with our partners, we are building clouds that benefit carriers the most – clouds featuring shortened service provisioning, reduced OPEX, and automated O&M. These improvements allow carriers to develop new business in public cloud and effectuate their transformations."
