Huawei and partners launch the HUAWEI CLOUD Partner Innovation Program

At the Huawei Developer Conference (HDC.Cloud) 2021, Huawei not only launched six new products and services but also announced a US$220 million investment into its Huawei Developer Program 2.0 this year. The Huawei Developer Program 2.0 will include launched initiatives including the HUAWEI CLOUD Partner Innovation Program, Kunpeng OpenMind Project, and Ascend OpenMind Project.

Zhang Ping’an, president of Huawei Cloud BU and Consumer Cloud Service, said that:

“Huawei will invest US$100 million in HUAWEI CLOUD Partner Innovation Program, focusing on enabling SaaS and ISV partners, and providing cloud resources, technology enablement, and business promotion support. The program covers six technical fields, including containers/microservices, SaaS, big data, AI, video, and intelligent edge.”

Since the release of the Huawei Developer Program in 2015, Huawei says it has been committed to a philosophy of open hardware, open source software, partner enablement, and talent development, as it works to build a constantly prosperous industry ecosystem.

Up to now, HUAWEI CLOUD, Kunpeng, and Ascend have attracted 2.4 million developers. HUAWEI CLOUD IaaS ranks No. 2 in China and No. 5 in the world, making it the fastest-growing mainstream cloud vendor. Partner-shipped products based on the Kunpeng motherboard accounted for 52% of the total Kunpeng-based product shipment in 2020.

Three open source communities, openEuler, openGauss, and MindSpore, have been built around operating systems, databases, and AI frameworks. These communities are now taking shape and thriving.

Huawei has worked with the Ministry of Education of China to build an intelligent foundation for collaborative education of talent. To date, Huawei has worked with 72 universities in China, offering more than 1,000 courses, training more than 1,500 teachers, and the company plans to provide software development training to 3 million university developers over the next five years.

The annual event of Huawei’s ICT infrastructure business for global developers, the Huawei Developer Conference (HDC.Cloud) 2021 are held from April 24 to 26, 2021 in Shenzhen, a city on the South coast of China. Themed “You make all the difference”, this event brings together industry leaders, Huawei scientists, top experts, young talent, and developers to discuss the innovation and application of the latest ICT technologies, such as cloud, computing, and AI, across industries.
