Huawei to offer Microsoft cloud services

Huawei and Microsoft signed a strategic memorandum of understanding (MoU) on cloud service under which Microsoft applications will be released on Huawei Cloud.

The two companies will initiate in-depth cooperation on the public cloud to provide the optimal experience of cloud services for enterprises and help enterprises implement digital transformation.

Huawei and Microsoft are already cooperating in the field of cloud computing as the Huawei Cloud has provided Windows Server and RDS for SQL Server. In this new strategic cooperation, Huawei and Microsoft will bring more Microsoft enterprise-level products online.

Joint innovation by the two parties provides customers with trusted hosting and various enterprise applications as a service. Facing promising prospects in the global market, both companies will jointly carry out market expansion and marketing activities on schedule.

Promote smart city development

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

Alain Crozier, Chairman and CEO of Microsoft Greater China Region 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 organizations as they transform," said Crozier. "Our increased collaboration will drive innovation as we build a seamless platform to benefit customers through industry-leading technology."

The MOU was signed at Huawei Connect 2017, Huawei's flagship event for the global ICT industry, which was held at the Shanghai New International Exhibition Centre on September 5-7.
