Huawei Ups Its Bet On Cloud Computing With Broader Support For Microsoft Apps
Huawei’s bid to be a player in China’s cloud computing scene got a little stronger Tuesday with the signing of a deal with Microsoft to host more of the software giant’s apps on its cloud.
Just five months into the making of Huawei’s public cloud strategy, the two companies signed a deal that will see more of Microsoft’s enterprise technology software become available on Huawei’s public cloud. Huawei launched its public cloud service in April with support for Windows Server and RDS (relational database service) for SQL Server, but customers running other Microsoft apps on-premises will now be able to take advantage of a cloud option for those apps through the new partnership.
