News: Companies will collaborate on deploying a cloud innovation centre.
Huawei and Telefonica are collaborating on a global scale to promote migration to the cloud.
The two companies will work together to help businesses to migrate their servers to the cloud, using Telefonica’s data centres for computing, storage and backup services.
The services are being made available without infrastructure investment and on a pay-per-use basis.
Huawei‘s role in the partnership will see it deploy Telefonica’s Open Cloud service, which is based on OpenStack, in eight of its partner’s data centres.
Telefonica will tap into Huawei’s knowledge in the public cloud market in China.
The collaborative services will be rolled out firstly in Brazil, Mexico and China during the first quarter of 2016, with five additional locations later in the year.
The services on offer will include virtual servers, storage and physical servers.
A further element of the collaboration will see the two companies deploy a cloud innovation centre, the purpose of this will be to allow the telco to further contribute to the OpenStack community.
