Telefonica Business Solutions have reached a global collaboration agreement with Huawei to help enterprises migrate their servers to the cloud, offering them services which include virtual servers, storage and physical servers, also known as 'bare metal' on a pay per use basis and with no infrastructure investment required.

The agreement will see Huawei deploying Telefonica’s Open Cloud service based on OpenStack across eight Telefonica data centers. The first countries where the service will be deployed are Brazil, Mexico and Chile during the first quarter of 2016, followed by five other additional locations during the rest of the year. 

Apart from the cloud collaboration, Telefonica is also teaming up with Huawei, in line with its strategy to make advanced technology solutions available to all its customers, on a Cloud innovation centre that will allow the telco to further contribute to the OpenStack community, supporting the OpenStack technology that underpins the deployment of the new cloud services, while reinforcing Telefonica’s support for innovation models and open standards.

Juan Carlos López-Vives, CEO Telefonica Business Solutions
With this agreement Telefonica will be better positioned to serve the needs of thousands of enterprises that require an easily scalable platform in the cloud at a competitive cost and with full reliability and security. 

Ryan Ding, Huawei’s Executive Director of the Board and President of Products & Solutions
This global collaboration agreement represents a unique milestone in our long successful partnership with Telefonica, and will certainly have a big impact in promoting the migration of enterprises to the cloud and the digital world in all Telefonica footprint.
