CEBIT 2018: Huawei launches hybrid cloud offering on Azure Stack

June 12, 2018


Huawei has launched a hybrid cloud service built for Azure Stack, Microsoft’s offering that brings Azure into customers’ datacentres as a private cloud.

Built on Huawei’s FusionServer V5 servers and CloudEngine switches, Huawei said the tool will allow enterprises to enable digital transformation projects by bringing Azure cloud services to on-premise sites where there is low connectivity, such as an aircraft or an oil rig.

Huawei is one of many firms working with Microsoft on producing services for Azure Stack, but speaking at CEBIT 2018, Microsoft partner director for Azure Stack, Vijay Tewari, labelled the vendor’s relationship with Huawei in particular as deep and strong.
