X-Connect provides high-speed, low latency, and secure connectivity capabilities across networks. It allows enterprises to deploy service systems across local data centers and public cloud, across regions and tenants within the cloud. Currently, this solution only applies to Mainland China.
Solution Advantages
  • Wide Coverage

    HUAWEI CLOUD has five main data centers and over 30 data centers widely connected by BGP networks for your use.

  • High Security

    Direct Connect helps you connect local data centers to VPCs with secure and high-speed networks.

  • High Performance

    Each single connection supports up to10 Gbit/s bandwidth, ensuring user experience with high-speed and low-latency networks.

  • Hybrid Deployment

    Direct Connect connects HUAWEI CLOUD as an extension to local data centers, forming a flexible and elastic hybrid deployment.

Business Challenges
  • Hybrid Deployment

    Hybrid deployment garners both security of local data centers and computing capability of public cloud. The public cloud is used as an extension of local data centers. Hybrid deployment requires a high performance network between local data centers and public cloud.

  • Disaster Recovery

    Storage on public cloud is secure and reliable. Enterprises can pay only for use and flexibly select regions for storage. However, disaster recovery systems on public cloud have high requirements on data transmission and Direct Connect connections.

  • Cross-Region Deployment

    Centrally deployed enterprise systems cannot provide fast and quick access experience for geographically distributed users. Deploying the enterprise system on nodes in different public cloud regions requires high speed private network connections.

Typical Scenarios
  • Hybrid Deployment

  • Remote Disaster Recovery

  • Cross-Region Deployment
