Forrester also identifies that Huawei offers competitive options and is a new entrant into this evaluation with its OpenStack-based platform, delivering a solid solution with best-in-class support options.
Mr. Ren Zhipeng, President of Huawei Cloud Computing Product Line, said, "Huawei is committed to becoming our customers' best partner for transforming from the traditional architecture to the cloud-based architecture.
