Huawei Cloud has launched a new Huawei Cloud Stack (HCS) offering specifically designed to provide cloud services in local data centers for government and enterprise customers.

According to Huawei Cloud, the company is focused on making itself the go-to choice for government and enterprise organisations looking to go through the process of intelligent upgrade.

Huawei Cloud states HCS provides three main capabilities: unified management, data governance, and application enablement.

Due to federated cloud technology, customers can have refined management of cross-cloud resource pools and obtain the industry's multi-level O&M capabilities. Through refined rights- and domain-based management, they can control resource access by region, department, and application.

For data governance, HCS allows enterprises to build enterprise data platforms. For instance they can use FusionInsight to create intelligent data lakes and use DAYU and ModelArt.

Huawei Cloud Roma allows enterprises to integrate multiple types of applications and data for full-lifecycle digital asset governance.

It is fully open to partners and developers who wish to run applications on a single, unified network, the company states. The offering also provides instant access to cloud services and marketplace applications.

Huawei Cloud president of Hybrid Cloud Lv Yangming says, based on the unified Optimus hardware-software synergy architecture, HCS and Huawei Cloud provide the same APIs that make it possible to let government and enterprise customers use cloud services in their local data centers.

In fact, according to Yangming, more than 70 cloud services from Huawei Cloud, such as AI, big data, IoT, and blockchain services, can be used if required.

To meet the operational needs of customers, Huawei Cloud has launched a remote hosting program, a remote service support program, and a local service support program.

After obtaining authorisation from the customer, Huawei provides support. All operations are visible, monitorable, manageable, and controllable, the company states.

Furthermore, Huawei Cloud Marketplace provides a new hybrid cloud zone where customers can obtain a large number of industry applications. The company states that partners from various industries are able to join up and build out this hybrid cloud zone.

As for security, Huawei Cloud provides intelligent encryption cards for on-demand encryption for scenarios such as big data, data warehouses, and block storage.

In addition, it connects with third-party key systems to implement independent key management and control.

HCS is delivered in integrated cabinets where hardware, cables, and cloud service software come preinstalled. After the equipment arrives, customers need less than 24 hours to commission and roll out services.

Huawei vice president and Huawei Cloud president Zheng Yelai, says, "In this age of new infrastructure, computing power has become a new source of productivity, data are the new raw materials; cloud, AI, and 5G are the new tools of production, and a new digital infrastructure is injecting momentum into the digital transformation.

“Cloud services are the only way forward for smart upgrade of government and enterprise organisations. Leveraging a wealth of experience in the industry, along with their experience with digital transformation, Huawei Cloud has released the Huawei Cloud Stack, aiming to accelerate digitalisation and intelligent upgrade of government and enterprise organisations alike."

According to Huawei, at present there are four major challenges facing organisations wishing to move forward with intelligent upgrade.

First, traditional IT services are insufficient and evolve too slowly. Organisations need to quickly acquire cloud service capabilities and innovate faster.

Second, organisations need widespread access to applications available in an open ecosystem. Third, data needs to be deployed locally for enhanced security in order to better meet management and compliance requirements. Fourth, organisations need to be able to gain rapid access to professional O&M.

HCS and Huawei’s cloud portfolio is designed to meet these challenges and further aid digital transformation and intelligent upgrade operations.

In addition to HCS, Huawei Cloud and Computing CTO for China Region Xiao Yi, officially launched the Huawei Cloud Marketplace Hybrid Cloud Partner Program, inviting partners to release applications in the hybrid cloud zone.

Huawei Cloud will also provide consulting services and solutions, including design support for digital transformation, enterprise cloudification consulting, data governance consulting, and AI solutions.

The company states, going forward, Huawei Cloud will continue to leverage cloud, AI, and 5G and the full-stack technology advancements to provide stable, secure, and sustainable cloud services, and will continue to work with partners in a bid to accelerate intelligent upgrade in every industry.
