CAPE TOWN – Huawei announced that it is preparing to launch its own cloud in South Africa
Huawei told Business Report in an email response: " We are working on the data centres with local telecom partners. We are very excited to have the service up and running by March. This will offer our customers lower-latency, reliable, and secure cloud services. We will be ready for trial use from next week based at the local data centre."
The data centres are set to launch in Johannesburg initially and later in Cape Town.
Huawei will deploy localised public cloud services based on local industry policies, customer requirements and partner conditions.
