Cloud computing and construction of data centers in the focus of the Data Center and Cloud Forum
Tashkent, Uzbekistan (UzDaily.com) -- The Eurasian Data Center and Cloud Forum dedicated to technological solutions for data processing and storage centers (DPC) and cloud computing started today in Tashkent.
As part of the forum, Huawei, in cooperation with the e-Government Project Management Center with the support of the Ministry for the Development of Information Technologies and Communications of the Republic of Uzbekistan, held a strategic session HUAWEI Day0, the main theme of which is “Jointly building a full-fledged ecosystem to accelerate digital transformation in the Eurasian region”.
The event was opened with a welcoming speech by the Minister for the Development of Information Technologies and Communications of the Republic of Uzbekistan Sherzod Shermatov, who noted the main achievements in the development of "Digital Uzbekistan" and the measures taken by the state to implement the country’s IT capabilities.
Daniel Zhou, President of the Eurasian region of Huawei, also delivered a welcoming speech, noting Uzbekistan’s significant breakthrough in the field of digital development, as evidenced by the recently released UN report on the Global E-Government Development Ranking, where Uzbekistan rose by 18 positions, as well as an improvement in the country’s position by 4 points in Global Innovation Index 2022.
“Uzbekistan is successfully developing within the framework of the global digital trend, actively investing in accelerating the digital transformation of public services. Many countries follow this trend, but cloud computing is far from everything that makes Uzbekistan a leader. With the creation of a single data storage and processing center, Uzbekistan has opened the door to a new era of data centers with absolute capabilities. The implemented project to create a national data center has become an example for other countries, and we would like to share it to build a joint and mutually beneficial Eurasian ecosystem,” said Daniel Zhou, President of the Eurasian region of Huawei, in his welcoming speech.
The strategic session has become a professional platform for the exchange of experience in the design, construction and operation of data centers, the provision and development of cloud services. Among the key areas, the current needs and new opportunities for the development of digitalization, practical aspects of building data centers, clouds, various industry scenarios for using Artificial Intelligence to accelerate digital transformation in the region were discussed. The keynote speaker was Aziz Mukhitdinov, Director of the e-Government Project Management Center, as well as representatives of large organizations and companies such as iKS-Consulting, ICS-Media, Uptime Institute, ZBS.
Holding a strategic session on the topic of cloud technologies and data centers in Tashkent was due to the recent successful experience of Uzbekistan in the field of digital development. On 27 August 2022, the Republic hosted the launch of a single data center for storage and processing of the "Electronic Government" system, implemented jointly with Huawei. The data center was created in accordance with international standards and has a TIER III certificate issued by the Uptime international institute. The project was presented to the President of Uzbekistan and laid the foundation for further digital development of public services, industries and various sectors of the economy.
Huawei has been operating in Uzbekistan for more than 23 years, participating in state-important projects to strengthen the country’s ICT infrastructure, including projects to introduce fifth-generation networks and use renewable energy sources. In order to make further technological contributions to the introduction of cloud technologies and the development of the digital potential of the Republic, on May 23, 2022, Huawei entered into a memorandum of understanding with the e-Government Project Management Center.
