As the only founding member of CNCF from Asia, Huawei Cloud continuously delivers cutting-edge cloud native services along with comprehensive products and solutions from Infrastructure as a Service, Technology as a Service, to Expertise as a Service.

Huawei Cloud released Pangu Models 3.0 this year. Sticking to its "AI for Industries" strategy, Huawei Cloud tailors its Pangu models for a wide range of industries, such as finance, manufacturing, mining, meteorology, and railway, empowering everyone from every industry with an intelligent assistant. In meteorology, the Pangu weather model is the first AI model to have surpassed state-of-the-art numerical weather prediction (NWP) methods. The prediction speed is also several orders of magnitude faster. In the past, predicting the trajectory of a typhoon for the next 10 days took 5 hours. Now, the Pangu weather model can do that in 10 just seconds. These results were published in renowned scientific journal Nature this July.

Huawei Cloud builds DataArts, a one-stop data governance pipeline to convert mass and complex disordered data into high-quality data for data-driven decision-making. Creditas, a major FinTech company in Brazil, leverages DataArts to maximize the value of financial data and evaluate loan requests from customers.

GaussDB, a ultra-distributed, ultra-scalable cloud database that has revolutionized the way we build databases, has been widely applied not only within Huawei but also in sectors like banking, insurance, securities, and energy. To illustrate its effectiveness, consider MV Sistemas, the largest medical information company in Brazil, which seamlessly migrated its data from on-premises databases to GaussDB to efficiently process and analyze complex data at scale. This migration has allowed them to intelligently manage their data while ensuring cost-effectiveness.

MetaStudio is Huawei Cloud's one-stop digital content production pipeline. Utilizing the Pangu virtual human model, MetaStudio redefines the productivity of virtual humans where a personalized virtual human can come to life from previously 9 person-days to just 3 minutes now.


Better Practices

Today, Huawei Cloud has established 84 availability zones (AZs) in 30 Regions and serves over 3 million customers in more than 170 countries and regions. Huawei Cloud is extending its digital transformation expertise into Brazil. Yang Hua, President of Huawei Cloud Brazil, shared insights on how to assist customers in expanding businesses through ongoing innovation on the cloud. He introduced five industry-specific solutions, namely e-commerce, media, finance, digital government, and carrier, which aim to expedite the digital transformation journey of Brazilian enterprises.

For e-commerce companies, Huawei Cloud is able to enhance their consumer analysis and search precision by 10%, speed up page loading by 30%, double the resource elasticity, and ensure smooth livestreaming with low-bit HD technologies.

In the media industry, Huawei Cloud is proficient in improving content productivity, enhancing user experience, and fostering innovation. During the 2022 World Cup, Huawei Cloud Low Latency Live (LLL) reduced the live latency from 3 seconds to 800 milliseconds.

Huawei Cloud has successfully accelerated the completion of a digital banking project from several months to just a few days. Moreover, DataArts enables banks to effectively combat fraud and manage risks associated in the pre-loan, in-loan, and post-loan processes. Banks can also use Huawei Cloud virtual humans for product introduction, customer services, training, and enablement.

In the government services field, Huawei Cloud eases the build of e-government clouds and unifies resource construction, application development, and data management. In China, Changsha has successfully established a digital government operating round the clock on Huawei Cloud. This advanced system accommodates a total of 397 government applications from 78 organizations. On the cloud, applications can run securely and stably and provide better services.

Huawei Cloud helps carriers go digital, improve efficiency, accelerate innovation, and increase revenue.
