Huawei has announced a blitz of cloud-based digital transformation solutions for enterprises, ranging from hardware and software to IoT connections, architecture, and hybrid clouds.
First up is Atlas, 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, hard disk drives and solid state drives 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.
Huawei DevCloud enables tools, capabilities, and process services on Huawei Cloud, sharing Huawei’s accumulated development experience with enterprises.
Huawei Cloud enterprise intelligence (EI) services assist enterprises in data innovation. 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, and intelligent packing, enabling smarter enterprises.
To meet the enterprise requirements for a distributed IT architecture, Huawei introduced three distributed database services on Huawei Cloud, including the distributed online analytical processing enterprise data warehouse LibrA, distributed online transaction processing enterprise database Derecho, and distributed MySQL database Taurus.
Also announced was the Huawei Cloud Internet of Things (IoT) platform, a full-stack platform that includes SIM card management, device management, and application enablement layer.
On the architecture front, 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 enterprise data centers. If the network connecting to the public cloud fails, the local system can continue to provide services to enterprises.
And finally, Huawei introduced its FusionBridge hybrid cloud solution, which 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 implements cross-cloud distributed deployment and on-demand expansion of customer services.
All of the solutions were introduced on stage at the Huawei Connect 2017 event in Shanghai by Joy Huang, VP of Huawei’s IT Product Line.
“Increasingly, innovation will take place in the cloud, and the cloud will need the all-round strength,” said Huang. “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.”
