Huawei builds comprehensive ecosystem on its Cloud
Cloud is quickly emerging as the platform for innovation
A total of six solutions, covering hardware, software, data, connection, architecture, and hybrid cloud, are now available on Huawei Cloud.
Joy Huang, vice president of Huawei’s IT Product Line, in a keynote speech titled "All Connected, All Cloud, All Intelligent", announced the six solutions designed to help enterprises on their digital transformation journey at HUAWEI CONNECT 2017.
Hardware: Atlas is Huawei's new-generation intelligent cloud hardware platform. In the scenarios of the public cloud, artificial intelligence (AI), and high-performance computing (HPC), Atlas pools resources of graphics processing units (GPUs), hard disk drives (HDDs), and solid state drives (SSDs) using heterogeneous resource pools and intelligent orchestration. The platform provides on-demand hardware resources to meet the requirements of different service models, doubling resource utilization. In addition, logic servers can be deployed within seconds, supporting quick service rollout.
Software: Huawei DevCloud enables tools, capabilities, and process services on Huawei Cloud, sharing Huawei's accumulated development experience with enterprises.
Data: Huawei Cloud enterprise intelligence (EI) services assist enterprises in data innovation to create an intelligent world. Huawei Cloud not only offers platform services, such as deep learning, graph analysis, and search, but also AI services, such as image tagging, intelligent audits, graph rebuilding, automated handling of customs declarations using Optical Character Recognition (OCR), and intelligent packing, enabling smarter enterprises. To meet the enterprise requirements for a distributed IT architecture, Huawei introduced three secure and reliable distributed database services on Huawei Cloud, including the distributed Online Analytical Processing (OLAP) enterprise data warehouse LibrA, distributed Online Transaction Processing (OLTP) enterprise database Derecho, and distributed MySQL database Taurus.
Connection: Huawei Cloud Internet of Things (IoT) platform is a full-stack platform that includes SIM card management, device management, and application enablement layer, having features of secure connection, cross-industry ecosystem, and easy integration. The platform provides a wide spectrum of industry enabling suites and templates, so that Huawei Cloud better matches IoT and Internet of Vehicles (IoV) scenarios.
Architecture: Huawei Cloud released the FusionCloud Stack solution and introduced enterprise storage services with 99.9999% reliability. As an extended module of the public cloud, FusionCloud Stack can be deployed in enterprises' data centres. If the network connecting to the public cloud fails, the local system can continue to provide services to enterprises. This solution maintains a consistent user experience of the public cloud, more secure data sovereignty, low latency, and zero local maintenance, helping migrating enterprises' mission-critical services to cloud securely.
Hybrid cloud: The FusionBridge hybrid cloud solution is based on the OpenStack cloud platform, with an innovative injection cascading architecture that is used to implement homogeneous or heterogeneous hybrid cloud. This solution provides a cross-cloud unified service catalog to shield the differentiation of using multiple cloud platforms. With an undifferentiated cross-cloud service image using HyperContainer, cross-cloud Overlay network automation, and unified vAPP deployment service, the solution easily implements cross-cloud distributed deployment and on-demand expansion of customer services. FusionBridge also provides customers with a Graphical User Interface (GUI) or an Operation and Maintenance (O&M) portal to help customers reduce workloads and simplify cross-cloud management.
"The digital transformation in many industries will bring human beings to an intelligent world in the future, and innovation will be the driving force of the revolution," said Joy Huang. "Increasingly, innovation will take place in the cloud, and the cloud will need the all-round strength. Huawei Cloud is committed to be an enabler of intelligent world, delivering continuous innovations of technologies and capabilities on Huawei Cloud to help customers succeed in their digital transformation."
HUAWEI CONNECT 2017 is the company’s flagship event, currently taking place at Shanghai New International Exhibition Centre from September 5-7, under the theme ‘Grow with the Cloud’.
