Partner-focused Approach Enables Large-Scale Cloud Computing Services
[MARKHAM, Ontario – 18 January 2011] Huawei, a leader in providing next-generation telecommunications network solutions for operators around the world, today announced its Cloud Computing strategy for the North American market. Designed to advance customers' journey to cloud computing, the strategy involves working with leading North American partners to deliver a solution that will enable customers to expand service offerings, reduce costs, and bring telecommunications services to the cloud.
"We see an exceptional opportunity to work closely with our valued North American partners and customers to take cloud computing to the next level," said Charles Ding, President of Huawei North America. "Huawei is developing a reliable, flexible, scalable and automated solution that will deliver our partners' cloud services and grow as this exciting technology evolves."
The explosive growth of information and the applications to access that information anywhere anytime is driving the need for cloud services. Affordable, standardized commodity servers that deliver astonishing performance with vast, inexpensive storage resources are easily accessible over the broadband network.
Organizations are quickly discovering the seemingly simple solution is quite complex to architect, deploy and manage and they need a partner to create and manage an efficient yet scalable platform that can facilitate common business or productivity applications online in an open, non-proprietary fashion. During the opening of its expanded Canadian headquarters today, Huawei plans to further discuss how the company will help its customers address their cloud computing needs.
Huawei's North American cloud computing strategy will be supported through a highly efficient and scalable platform, which will be open to partner cooperation in order to build a sustainable eco-system.
