Huawei signs deal to put Microsoft apps on Huawei Cloud

An MOU has been signed by Huawei and Microsoft at Huawei’s Connect 2017 event for “in-depth co-operation on the public cloud” to help companies implement “digital transformation".

Huawei and Microsoft already enjoy deepening business co-operation and dealings in cloud computing, with Huawei Cloud offering Windows Server and RDS for SQL Server.

However, a new strategic co-operation has been entered into, with both companies bringing more Microsoft enterprise-level products online to Huawei’s Cloud platform, and an MOU signing ceremony sealing the deal.

We are told that “joint innovation by the two parties provide customers with trusted hosting and various enterprise applications as a service,” with promising global business prospects emboldening both players to “jointly carry out market expansion and marketing activities on schedule".

Zheng Yelai, president of Huawei’s Cloud BU and IT Product Line, said at the MOU signing ceremony, "Adhering to a customer-centered philosophy, Huawei is dedicated to enabling and promoting the development of a smart society.

“As a world-leading provider of software, services, and solutions, Microsoft has played an important part in the enterprise market all along. Huawei Cloud looks forward to co-operating with Microsoft to build an open and win-win ecosystem. The signing of this MOU marks the start of strategic co-operation between the two companies."

Alain Crozier, chief executive of Microsoft China, said, “The fourth industrial revolution, driven by technology innovation, is creating opportunities for customers to achieve more across nearly every industry.

"As a global leader in enterprise IT, Huawei is a strategic partner for Microsoft in the mission to empower organisations as they transform. Our increased collaboration will drive innovation as we build a seamless platform to benefit customers through industry-leading technology.

“Together, we are confident that we will lead, and win, in the era of digital transformation by focusing on what our customers need.”

Huawei is currently holding its Huawei Connect 2017 event, billed as the company’s “flagship event for the global ICT industry” at the Shanghai New International Exhibition Centre from 5 to 7 September.

This year’s theme is “Grow with the Cloud,” with Huawei “exploring how to realise new growth through digital transformation together with its customers and partners at this global platform for open collaboration".
