[HK, China, Nov. 10, 2016] Huawei has been honored with “Cloud Journey of the Year” award at the Datacenter Dynamic Asia Pacific Awards 2016. The achievement was celebrated at a gala dinner on November 9 in Hong Kong.
The DatacenterDynamics Awards recognizes innovation, leadership and out-of-the-box thinking across the data center industry. Judging is rigorous, with an independent panel of experts from global data center authorities and organizations scrutinizing entries. All finalists are internationally regarded as exemplars for the industry, with winners displaying exceptional performance and making a world-class contribution to the sector.
Huawei won the Cloud Journey of the Year Award for its role in a comprehensive B2B hosting cloud project for China Telecom (Jiaxing). China is at a critical moment as it seeks to accelerate its economic transformation and upgrade its industries and business sector. Service-oriented municipal governments are vital to realizing the benefits of recent reforms and to the future development of China’s cities. The Jiaxing municipal government is positive in China to migrate to the cloud. As a pioneer, it is encouraging subordinate cities and government departments to build services in the cloud so as to create a public service platform using cloud computing technologies.
China Telecom (Jiaxing) has therefore joined hands with Huawei, through Huawei’s top down planning, cloud platform integration, business migration services to help the Jiaxing municipal government build a “one-center-four-platforms” infrastructure comprising an eGovernment cloud data center supported by a network integration platform, an information sharing platform, an application platform and a security platform. This model allows public services to be implemented under “one network” and improves the government’s ability to serve its citizens. As of October 2016, this project had enabled 124 businesses of 45 council offices to migrate to the cloud, including those of the Industry and Commerce Bureau, Audit Bureau, Human Resources and Social Security Bureau, Provident Fund, and Ministry of Land & Resources. The total cost of ownership has been reduced, while the efficiency of government services has been enhanced. For example, the time needed to process industrial and commercial registrations has been reduced from months to days.
Huawei has provided data center integration services and solutions to customers around the world since 2002. Its expertise spans research and development and the delivery and operation and maintenance (O&M) of data center solutions. Huawei’s extensive experience ranges from the early days of the data center market in 2002 to innovating in 2009 and commercialization in 2014. As of September 2016, Huawei had helped global customers deploy 830 data centers, including 420 cloud data centers.
