At present, cloud computing has become the three major telecom operators to deal with ICT integration challenges, to get rid of the dumb pipeline of a sharp weapon, three operators in the cloud computing investment is also continuing to increase.
However, because of the large scale of telecom operators ' cloud computing, high controllability and security requirements, traditional IT companies need an adaptive process to help telecom operators deploy cloud computing, while traditional telecoms device vendors have a natural advantage in helping operators deploy cloud computing.
So how does a telecoms device understand cloud computing? How to help operators build manageable telecommunications cloud? In this respect, Huawei Telecom cloud computing product line Marketing engineering director Wang in the interview with C114 for us to interpret.
Cloud computing: Huawei has no baggage
At present, the ICT revolution caused by new technologies such as cloud computing has been unstoppable, and Huawei has made strategic adjustment for customers in order to adapt to the revolutionary change and integration in the ICT industry. It is an important part of Huawei's innovation that extends from telecom carrier Network to enterprise business and consumer domain, and develops "cloud-tube-end" business together.
In Wang's view, "The Rise of cloud computing provides a good opportunity for Huawei to enter the IT arena without the cloud, and it may not be so determined." ”
Indeed, the rise of cloud computing has left the ICT industry with a new starting-point, and Huawei's biggest advantage in developing cloud computing is its lack of historical burdens and baggage. Wang pointed out, "because cloud computing is a revolution, since the revolution will certainly make changes to the old things or subversion, so the traditional IT companies have a lot of worries, and for Huawei is not too much historical baggage." ”
Of course, Huawei's development of cloud computing also needs to revolve around Huawei's overall strategy, according to Wang, "in Huawei's entire cloud-tube-end strategy, the end company is like a faucet, opened to allow information to flow smoothly to the end user's hands; The cloud is a practical technology or platform above to support large pipelines, Because of the cloud there will be more innovation, so that the cost of access to information is lower, faster, more kinds of more, and then the pipeline braces. ”
Huawei's strategic deployment in cloud computing has already begun, although it is a new recruit in the IT field. In 2008, Huawei will hold 51% of its h3c stake to 3Com, which has been acquired by HP, and Huawei has returned to the starting point of its business market; in November 2010, Huawei officially announced a massive foray into cloud computing; in October 2011, Huawei announced its formal establishment of the IT product line, Make it an important part of Huawei's development strategy, and the establishment of "2012 laboratories"; in March 2012, Huawei completed its acquisition of Huawei Symantec, enhanced its capabilities in corporate and security solutions, and in addition, Huawei has set up 23 research and development centers worldwide, including 6 in Europe and 5 in North America, And with customers set up 34 joint Innovation Center. Huawei's a series of initiatives in the IT field are fully prepared for the cloud computing.
Helping Telecom Cloud: being the person behind the operator
While Huawei continues to invest more in the IT enterprise network, Huawei's cloud computing has begun with operators, and the operator market is a cloud-computing market that Huawei attaches great importance to. In Wang's view, "Unlike a typical corporate network, cloud computing is a combination of both personal and external delivery services, and the operator cloud computing deployments are huge, complex, and demanding for reliability." Huawei's telecom cloud product line and enterprise network cloud computing product line is the sharing resources, including IT infrastructure, data center management software, but in the market, Huawei Telecom Cloud is still using the traditional way of direct marketing. ”
At present, the domestic three major operators have launched their own cloud computing strategy, but this and Huawei's cloud computing strategy does not conflict. Wang stressed, "Huawei in the development of cloud computing positioning or a standing behind the operators, Huawei's success must be in the operator's success, must be customer-centric." Huawei Telecom Cloud strategic positioning is through the excellent IT technology and services, to help telecom operators business innovation. ”
"With years of experience in cloud computing, Huawei has been able to accumulate a full range of telecom cloud capabilities, which is unique to Huawei as a provider of telecom cloud solutions, and Huawei already has full capabilities in telecom cloud solutions." "Wang said that Huawei's years in the telecommunications sector, and the establishment of long-term cooperation with operators, so that Huawei can more deeply understand the needs of operators, coupled with professional integration services and management services capabilities, so that Huawei can better help operators to achieve business cloud.
To match the carrier's appeal, Huawei divides the telecom cloud solution into a telecoms private cloud and a public cloud solution: The Telecom Private cloud solution provides IT services within the operator, including the new, modified and ITO and BPO outsourcing services of the carrier's IT Infrastructure Telecom Public Cloud solutions provide IT services to telecom operators, including providing it application services for small and medium-sized enterprises, providing IT outsourcing services and government cloud solutions.
First-scale income: Huawei Telecom Cloud Everywhere
According to Wang, Huawei has already had a lot of successful practical experience in telecommunication cloud, Huawei has participated in and successfully implemented the data center of the new and transformation, the telecommunications IT system cloud migration, government cloud construction, public cloud services and many other types of projects, applied to the world's top operators.
Huawei, for example, has achieved rapid delivery and deployment in the world's largest cloud data center built by China Mobile. Compared with the traditional data center, China Mobile saves investment of 30%, the application system on-line time from a few weeks to a few hours, the room density increased by 30%. In the all data Center for Guatemala's Tigo, Huawei saved 50% of its investment and achieved rapid deployment, saving 50% of business time.
Huawei has invested more than 10,000 people in the field of cloud computing since it fully entered the cloud computing field in 2008. As of April this year, Huawei has helped clients build 210 data centers worldwide, including 20 cloud computing data centers, including the world's largest cloud data center, China Mobile International port. Wang stressed that the telecommunications cloud input is a long-term project, first of all to do a large-scale second consideration of income.
