Huawei Cloud, the cloud computing arm of Huawei Technologies Co, announced its plans to unveil new service regions in Indonesia and Ireland, as part of its broader push to expand overseas presence.
Zhang Ping'an, CEO of Huawei Cloud, said the company is committed to building one global network, which allows services on Huawei Cloud to be accessed within 50 milliseconds from anywhere on the globe. Enterprises will no longer need to build their own data centers.
By the end of this year, Huawei Cloud will operate 75 availability zones in 29 regions, covering more than 170 countries and regions, Zhang said at the ongoing Huawei Connect 2022, a company conference in Bangkok, Thailand.
Hu Houkun, rotating chairman of Huawei, said organizations should embrace the cloud for leapfrog development as digital smart tech is the future. Huawei Cloud has integrated more than 240 services and more than 50,000 application programming interfaces to bring the latest AI, application development, and big data technologies and development tools to the cloud. The innovation and expertise of Huawei Cloud will help more organizations move to the cloud faster and more efficiently.
Huawei Cloud said it sticks to the approach of "by local, for local" for building a global digital ecosystem. Over the next three years, Huawei Cloud will provide support for at least 10,000 promising startups around the world, with support including cost optimization, technical support, entrepreneurship training, and other business resources. More than 120 enterprises in Asia Pacific have joined the Huawei Cloud Startup Program.
