HUAWEI CLOUD's global layout is accelerating and will be launched in Indonesia and Ireland



On September 19, the Huawei Connect Conference 2022 kicked off in Bangkok, Thailand. At the meeting, HUAWEI CLOUD CEO Zhang Ping'an announced that Indonesia and Ireland will be launched in the near future. In addition, HUAWEI CLOUD's more than 15 innovative services in cloud native, AI development and other fields will also be launched globally for the first time.


  The Huawei Connect Conference has always been the "year-end report" of its To B business. It is worth mentioning that this is the first time that Huawei has chosen its venue overseas. Most of the guests attending the conference are from countries in the Asia-Pacific region.


  This may be a signal that Huawei is accelerating its expansion into overseas markets.


  Hu Houkun, the rotating chairman of Huawei, said in his speech that the global digital infrastructure still needs to be strengthened. For countries and enterprises that have just started digital transformation, the infrastructure for connection and computing is still relatively weak, and countries and enterprises that have undergone digital transformation earlier and faster have higher requirements for connection and computing. This may be an opportunity for Huawei.


  Huawei has already established a presence in the Asia-Pacific region. Since 2018, HUAWEI CLOUD has successively built local nodes in Thailand, Singapore, Malaysia and other places. This year, it will deploy access points in the Philippines, Vietnam, India, Japan and South Korea. By the end of this year, HUAWEI CLOUD will deploy 29 regions and 75 availability zones around the world, covering more than 170 countries and regions.

Zeng Xingyun, President of HUAWEI CLOUD Asia Pacific, said that HUAWEI CLOUD has become the fastest growing cloud among the top 5 cloud service providers in Asia Pacific, ranking 2nd in the Chinese market, 3rd in Thailand, and 4th in emerging Asia-Pacific markets.

 According to data disclosed by Huawei, in 2021, HUAWEI CLOUD's key customers in Asia Pacific will increase by 156%, the number of ecological partners will increase by 90%, and partner revenue will increase by 150%, which is higher than the revenue of HUAWEI CLOUD itself. Currently, HUAWEI CLOUD's customers in Asia Pacific include CT Crop, an Indonesian enterprise group , SCB Bank of Thailand, and Sarawak Energy Corporation of Malaysia.


  Huawei's annual report shows that in 2021, Huawei's revenue in the Asia-Pacific region will be 53.67 billion yuan, accounting for 8.4% of total revenue, second only to China and Europe, Central Africa (Europe, Middle East, Africa).


  Accelerating overseas expansion is almost a common practice of domestic leading cloud manufacturers. In addition to Huawei, Alibaba Cloud and Tencent Cloud have also successively deployed nodes around the world.


  In the past, Internet companies supported a huge cloud service market, but with the slowdown in the growth of the domestic Internet industry, there is a high cost of learning when traditional industries migrate to the cloud. Southeast Asia has become the preferred destination for cloud manufacturers to attack overseas due to factors such as geographical proximity to China, more convenient layout, and closer user behavior to China.


  "From the first day of definition, the goal of HUAWEI CLOUD is to be one of the 'five clouds' in the world, and to be a global cloud is our very clear strategic positioning from beginning to end." At this year's Huawei Global Analyst Conference, Shi Jilin, President of HUAWEI CLOUD Global Marketing and Sales Services, said this.
