Will Chinese companies surge to the top of the public cloud market?

Bombast and vaulting ambition are common themes amongst technology companies. But when Huawei announced recently that it wanted to be one of the “top five” public clouds, it seemed part and parcel of a far bigger picture.

Chinese culture in based on an extreme work ethic and emphasis on quantifiable achievement, this means they tend to demonstrate less of the bluster you may typically expect from a North American company. The upshot is a certain reticence when it comes to big, vague statements. Interestingly, when quizzed about specifics, Huawei proved very cagey.


What is Huawei hoping to achieve in the public cloud market?

The actual words used by Guo Ping, Huawei's Rotating CEO, during the kickoff keynote for its “Grow with the Cloud” event in Shanghai was: “We predict there will be five major clouds in the world. Huawei will work with our partners to build one of those five clouds, and we've got the technology and know-how to do it.”
