China’s Huawei, a quintessential network equipments provider, takes concerted efforts in high lighting its prowess in the field of IT infrastructure, where it provides all the key datacentre building blocks including servers, storage, networking and network security systems. However, as the cloud, big data and virtualization secure cardinal coordinates in enterprise IT environments, Huawai has come out with the policy of ‘One Cloud, One Lake, One Platform’ to help customers innovate services and create business value based on application scenarios of customers in the government and public utilities, carrier, finance, transportation, and manufacturing fields.
At the 15th Huawei Global Analyst Summit (HAS2018), Huawei IT Product Line explores the business and technology values of IT infrastructure during digital transformation with the concept of ‘Intelligent IT Inspires Digital Future’.
“Inspired by new IT technologies including cloud, big Data, and AI (artificial intelligence), IT infrastructure is not only a pillar of business, but also a driving force for creating business value,” said Hou Jinlong, President of Huawei’s IT Product Line. “The focus of enterprises has been shifting from effective utilization of resources to sustainable business development, and from cost effectiveness to value creation. We’re dedicated to tailoring innovative IT solutions to meet industry-specific requirements, to help enterprises solve problems and generate business value”, added Jinlong.
One Cloud refers to a converged cloud infrastructure. The converged infrastructure features unified delivery, management, and service provisioning. One Lake refers to a data lake. By aggregating data from all parties, a lake provides full-lifecycle data processing capabilities, including data collection, storage, computing, management, and utilization. The data lake allows enterprises to transform their data resources into data assets. One Platform is an application enablement platform that integrates basic data services, general-purpose middleware, and industry-specific middleware to enable customers and ISVs to achieve service innovation.
According to reports from IDC and Gartner, Huawei’s Big Data and e-Government Cloud solutions are in the leader’s position in China, and Huawei’s storage has been reaffirmed as a world leader. Huawei’s hyper-convergence infrastructure have also been seen as a challenger.
The first Huawei Global Analyst Summit was held in 2004, and has continued annually for 15 years. This year’s summit runs from April 17 to 19, with multiple parallel sessions. Attendees include industry experts from around the world, all of whom provide their unique insight into a variety of topics and trends.
