ZTE Unveils Proprietary Cloud Computing Operating System

ZTE, a publicly-listed global provider of telecommunications equipment and network solutions, today demonstrated its complete range of cloud computing solutions for the first time, including its proprietary CoCloud cloud operating system. The entire range was unveiled at the China Cloud Computing Conference in Beijing.

With the CoCloud operating system at its core, ZTE’s cloud computing solutions also include a range of IT resource management platforms covering virtual computing, cloud operations management and cloud security. Together with a range of cloud applications for government and industry vertical sectors, these solutions cover all major industries from the traditional telecoms market to government and enterprise markets. ZTE also officially announced the establishment of its Global Cloud Computing Centre in Nanjing at the same time.

ZTE had previously made its new commitment to the cloud computing and integrated circuit (IC) markets known with the release of the 2010 annual report earlier on March 18th.

“It is our ambition to use cloud computing to account for a third of ZTE’s total revenues,” said Mr. Shi Lirong, President of ZTE. “The establishment of ZTE’s Global Cloud Computing Centre in Nanjing, with space for up to 10,000 R&D personnel, is a significant milestone for ZTE’s cloud computing strategy.

“Cloud computing has revolutionised the provision of technology resources and applications and is bringing radical change to both the information technology and communications technology markets, and opening up new opportunities for both creators and consumers of technology solutions. ZTE aims to be a major global player in the development of these markets.”

ZTE’s cloud computing solutions bring together a number of the company’s major fields of expertise – network architecture design and development, commercial applications with a telecom requirement, and network security management and control.

Compared to traditional operating systems, ZTE’s CoCloud gives users a clear view of system processes, enables the dynamic transfer of resources to where they are most needed, provides templates for fast development of new resources, and is easily adapted to respond to different service management scenarios.

ZTE will continue to work with service providers around the world to further develop cloud computing technologies which help transform the telecom industry. In addition, ZTE has established partnerships with many government agencies and public and private enterprises to develop cloud-based solutions in fields such as e-government and intelligent transportation.
