Huawei launches cloud data centre in Saudi Arabia

Huawei opened a cloud data centre in Saudi Arabia’s capital city Riyadh, a move to grow its cloud services in the Middle East, Central Asia and North Africa.

Reuters reported the cloud data centre is Huawei’s 30th globally and it will enable the Saudi government to tap into AI applications and language models for its services.

The Arab nation had previously stated it would not sign contracts with foreign companies that did not have regional HQs in the country.

Huawei president of cloud global marketing and sales service Jacqueline Shi said in a statement: “Huawei Cloud aims high, aims global and aims here in Saudi Arabia. Saudi Arabia Region will be our focus in serving the Middle East, Central Asia and Africa, providing innovative, reliable, secure, and sustainable cloud services.

“We hope to create a better choice for advancing intelligence. This cloud gives you more choices to stay innovative, inclusive, and open.  This cloud will help you succeed in the digital and intelligent era. This cloud is for everyone.”
