Huawei Cloud IaaS has been listed among the top five Cloud IaaS providers in the world, after its revenue surged by a stunning 202.8 per cent.
According to a report from research firm, Gartner Inc., this is the second consecutive year the company recorded over 200 per cent growth in the IaaS market, breaking into the top five IaaS vendors with 4.2 per cent market share.
Huawei Cloud was one of the first vendors to invest in cloud-native technologies, the company stated on Tuesday.
A statement to Financial Street read in part, “Huawei Cloud helped establish the Cloud Native Computing Foundation in 2015, and is the only founding member and the first platinum member of CNCF, contributing more than 130 core features to the CNCF community.
“By December 2020, Huawei Cloud had launched more than 220 cloud services and more than 210 solutions. Through technology partnerships, it developed more than 20,000 partners, attracted 1.8 million developers, and launched more than 4,000 applications in the marketplace.”
Since its launch in South Africa, in 2019, Huawei Cloud has experienced exponential growth in the cloud market. Currently, the technology giant has four points of presence in Africa: two in South Africa, one each in Nigeria and Kenya.
“The impact of the Coronavirus Disease has resulted in an increased move to the cloud, and need for technology enablers. We plan to increase the number of local data centres, as the demand for cloud services grows. We currently serve customers in 12 countries, with plans to grow rapidly as the need arises,” said the new President for Huawei Cloud in Southern Africa, Stone He.
According to the statement, in South Africa, in 2020, Huawei saw great business growth in public and hybrid cloud.
