According to a statement, the company places a particular focus on desktop cloud applications and the different application of cloud computing in different industry scenarios.

"This includes some of our latest solutions developed to provide enterprises with components of a data centre that are able to run and process at a reduced cost, saving on both CAPEX and OPEX in the long term," says Dong Wu, VP, Huawei Enterprise, Middle East.

"We will also be introducing our latest HVS high-end storage solution and our Cloud Engine series of switches as part of our cloud computing initiatives."

To address the demands of cloud computing, Huawei has developed solutions such as HVS storage systems and the Cloud Engine series of enterprise switches. Cloud Engine enables high-density and high-speed traffic on business networks, supporting cloud-based applications and reducing power consumption. The HVS storage solution allows utilities to adopt a virtualised approach to storing data, conserving resources and saving energy and floorspace.  

In addition to showcasing products, GITEX allows Huawei to meet partners and customers. A Hot Topics forum at the Huawei stand will address a range of topical ICT issues. The company's main stand is located in the Gulfcomms area and it will be present in the Cloud Confex.
