The Huawei Cloud Computing Platform:A Self-made Parachute

After more than a year of hard work, Huawei's self-developed cloud computing platform finally fulfills the stringent requirements of its IT department and the company becomes, effectively, its own chief IT cloud infrastructure supplier. Rigorously tested by its own IT team — which must support one of the largest multinational companies in the world — using the platform internally has laid a solid foundation for deploying the cloud computing platform in many more industries.>>

A Wealth of Knowledge at Your Fingertips

Understanding the world's oceanic ecosystem — and perhaps even helping to save them — is an ICT-intensive endeavor. Shanghai Ocean University recently constructed a storage architecture, supported by Huawei's OceanStor N8000, that is poised to quickly address the University's future challenges. This clustered Network-Attached Storage (NAS) system is supplemented with data protection software and constitutes a complete data storage and protection solution. The university also expects to realize savings of more than US $700,000 just by using the system's Dynamic Storage Tiering feature alone.>>

But Huawei's education cloud solution enabled all of the schools in Guangzhou to share educational resources, significantly reducing the costs of making terminals widely available and increasing the utilization of educational hardware resources. This solution provided a brand new platform to promote the balanced development of education in both urban and rural areas in Guangzhou.>>
