Huawei has announced its participation at the four-day OpenStack Summit 2013 in Hong Kong. During the Summit, Huawei will join in-depth discussions on OpenStack technological trends and development of a healthy cloud computing industry with global technical experts, customers, industry analysts and media.


Just before the start of the Summit, on November 4, 2013, Huawei was granted Gold Membership by OpenStack Foundation and became the first China-based vendor to receive such honor. This is a testament of industry recognition of Huawei's ongoing efforts and contributions to the establishment of global standards of cloud computing.

"Huawei is a top 20 code contributor and has been working to build the OpenStack community in China. As a Gold Member of the OpenStack Foundation, we look forward to their continued contributions to develop OpenStack globally," said Jonathan Bryce, Executive Director of OpenStack Foundation.

"Within three years of its launch, OpenStack has gained widespread support in the industry with its advanced structure, efficient operation and flexible licensing model, and has become one of the most influential open-source projects in cloud computing today," the company mentioned in itsstatement.


"During the OpenStack Summit, Huawei will share updates of the company's OpenStack strategy and internal use case through a number of keynote speeches and panel discussions with fellow industry experts," it said.

Huawei will also discuss its perspective on Software Defined Network (SDN) and network evolution strategy in the cloud-computing era, as well as Network Function Virtualization (NFV), challenges facing OpenStack in ICT integration, and recommendations for addressing such challenges.

"Over the years, Huawei has already established an efficient research and development (R&D) team for the development of OpenStack-based cloud computing solutions. We will continue to share our achievements with the community to help accelerate the maturity of OpenStack technologies, and work with other partners to promote the adoption and development of OpenStack in the industry,"said Mr. Ren Zhipeng, President of Huawei's IT Cloud Computing Division.

In addition, Huawei will collaborate with Mirantis, the world-renowned OpenStack company, to demonstrate an all-in-one OpenStack solution, which allows customers to deploy one-stop OpenStack-based applications, accelerating the commercialization of OpenStack technologies.
