HUAYAN Data Group: Comprehensive Hybrid Cloud Management
Market intelligence provider, IDC predicts that hybrid cloud will account for more than two-thirds of the total cloud market in the near future, while Gartner’s view is more radical, that by 2020, 90 percent of organizations will adopt hybrid infrastructure management capabilities. As the enterprise application landscape becomes increasingly complex, pure public or private clouds are more unlikely to fulfill organizations’ business and IT development requirements. On the other hand, hybrid cloud promises to offer the agility and flexibility necessary to meet today’s ever-changing business demands. Organizations that adopt hybrid cloud can optimize costs, boost efficiencies, simplify IT management, as well as achieve faster resource expansion. However, selecting the right toolset to deliver end-to-end services in a hybrid, multisource environment can be a tedious and complicated task. China-based HUAYUN Data Group provides a one-stop shop for comprehensive hybrid cloud management solutions that encompass both public and private cloud as well as disaster recovery, second-level capacity expansion, application-oriented optimization, and more.
HUAYUN Data Group is dedicated to providing “autonomous, secure, and controlled” cloud computing services, helping organizations transform their businesses and improve IT capabilities. Back during the 2000s, HUAYUN’s founder, chairman, and CEO, Xu Guangbin, had foreseen a bright future for cloud computing. Corroborating his belief, he set up one of China’s first cloud computing team in 2007 and established HUAYUN Data Group in 2010, offering high-quality public cloud products across both data- and compute-intensive categories. “These products help enterprises quickly build flexible, stable, and easy-to-use public cloud platforms, reduce difficulties in development and maintenance, and enhance operational efficiencies,” says Guangbin.
“We not only offer CloudUltra®, which features hybrid clouds based on business data and applications, but also enterprise-class hyper-convergence infrastructure (HCI) for enterprises to quickly build a hybrid cloud,” states Guangbin. HUAYUN’s hyper-convergence product, H2CI™, can create a cloud computing environment in seconds, making it easy to build an out-of-the-box software-defined data center. H2CI™ comprises pre-installed computing and storage virtualization software and a cloud management platform along with fully integrated security and network capabilities.
Over the years, HUAYUN has built numerous use cases in a variety of sectors such as rail transportation, finance, education, public security, administration, manufacturing, and more. The company has served as many as 300,000 clients, including USTC, Renmin University of China, Wuxi Metro, Shanghai Intelligent Rail Transit, National Super Computing Center Tianhe-2, and Bureau of Economic Crime Investigation under the Ministry of Public Security among others. HUAYUN’s project for Shanghai Pharmaceutical Holdings best exemplifies the efficacy of the company’s offerings. The client was looking to build a private cloud environment for its headquarters as well as various holding companies. HUAYUN assisted the client in developing a new generation private cloud platform that integrated data across all holding companies and provided a comprehensive view of their entire private and hybrid management infrastructure. As a result, the utilization rate of Shanghai Pharmaceuticals increased by 80 percent and efficiency by 70 percent, while the operational cost was lowered by 30 percent.
Along with scripting success stories for clients across industries, HUAYUN has actively participated in the formulation of various standards in the cloud computing industry and has won more than 500 intellectual property rights. In 2018, HUAYUN was awarded the title of ‘2018 China Top 100 Internet Enterprises’ along with being nominated as one of the ‘Top 50 Chinese Big Data Enterprises’. “We have recently acquired Maxta, a leading hyper-convergence software provider, and will continue to expand our cloud computing capabilities,” concludes Guangbin.
