The cloud is expanding in China. Huawei Technologies plans to launch a unique China public cloud service this July. Huawei is working to make its service stand out amid players like Microsoft, Amazon, and Chinese company Alibaba Group. They’re expanding with customer needs – Huawei already offers hardware and software products to clients for the cloud.
A global company, Huawei is keeping the cloud service local to China for now. Acting CEO Eric Xu says the company wants to develop public cloud services in international markets.
The new service doesn’t expect major competition from China’s three telecom operators, says Xu. If Huawei’s cloud launch succeeds, Xu hopes partnerships will result.
