A HUAWEI CLOUD team worked closely with Rain during the COVID-19 Pandemic, making sure that the proposed solution would meet the customer's business and technical requirements, and at the same time keeping Rain ahead of competition.
While working with Rain, the HUAWEI CLOUD team managed to win the customer's trust by proving that we were able to deliver the proposed solution with all the promised benefits. HUAWEI CLOUD's local technical teams continue to support Rain 24/7, always responding to any issues within the agreed SLAs, making sure that Rain was able to deploy on HUAWEI CLOUD fast.
How HUAWEI CLOUD Benefits AFGRI
High availability and improved security
Secure, high-performance resources back by SLAs met their security and high availability requirements. Regional data centers with security certification matched customers' compliance and globalization strategies.
New capabilities unlocked to diversity and expand
With a range of easy-to-deploy cloud products and services, development roadblocks were overcome, and the ability to scale and switch to an agile service model was achieved.
Cost-effective pricing, with no upfront hardware investments
The flexibility of billing methods to either fully utilize resources with pay-per-use pricing, or save money with pre-allocated packages helped reduce costs and improve return on investment (ROI).
With AFGRI’s business going global, they needed to get out of the performance bottlenecks of their current hosting environment and gain new technical capabilities to match their rapid expansion. At the same time, AFGRI had begun the transformation towards intelligent agriculture, and needed new AI and Big Data services to rapidly meet their customers’ future requirements.
The current hosting platform had many limitations on scalability, high availability, and disaster recovery.
There was a need for end-to-end security and assurance, and international cybersecurity certification.
New smart products and services would be needed to meet future digital transformation requirements.
Without changing AFGRI’s existing network structure, HUAWEI CLOUD seamlessly interconnected with the point of presence in South Africa (Direct Connect), meeting the requirements of AFGRI's multi-office access architecture and improving the scalability of the customer's network. High-performance dedicated infrastructure products (DeHs) were provided with flexible backup policies (CBR) to automate management and reduce infrastructure service costs. In addition, to meet AFGRI’s high availability requirements, asynchronous storage replication (SDRS) was implemented. A suite of new smart products (microservices and AI) was made available to drive forward the aim of intelligent digital transformation. The rich partner ecosystem in South Africa supported reliable migration plans, while HUAWEI CLOUD’s VIP customer service ensured stable service.
