In the smartphones market, Huawei is a highly respectable name across the world, and it holds the pole position in the China smartphones market. Riding on its recent success and noticing the prosperity of the cloud computing market, the Chinese company has decided to throw its hat into it via strategic alliances and emerge as one of the top five cloud computing companies in the near future.
Huawei has decided to share information internally with its alliances. In Europe and Latin America, the company has joined hands with Deutsche Telekom, France Télécom, and Telefónica, whereas in the domestic Chinese market, the company is in talks to partner with Tianyi cloud, China Telecom’s cloud computing department. Guo Ping, Huawei’s CEO, revealed at the Huawei Connect 2017 on September 5 that the expanding field of cloud computing platforms will soon take over the sales of hardware. As per the projections of the company, the Internet of Things (IoT), artificial intelligence (AI), big data, and video analysis will soon be delivered in the form of cloud computing.
Data Sovereignty to Keep Cloud Computing Market Concentrated Only Among a Few Companies
In the near future, Huawei is forecasting a centralization of cloud computing technologies. However, owing to the data security concerns, the Chinese smartphone giants expect that only a few cloud computing companies will be able to serve efficiently to the consumers and it aspires to be one of them. As of now, Microsoft Azure, Amazon Web Services, and Alphabet’s Google are the leading providers of cloud-based services for businesses in the U.S., while Alibaba Cloud leads in China.
