Xunlei plans US cloud computing service
    2017-December-25  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

TECHNOLOGY company Xunlei Ltd. plans to launch a cloud computing service in the United States and Europe next year, aiming to compete in Amazon’s home market, Xunlei’s chief executive has said.

The venture adds to a stream of Chinese technology brands that are expanding into developed markets. Huawei, the No. 3 global smartphone brand, said earlier this month that it will increase its U.S. presence by selling through American telecom carriers next year.

Xunlei launched its OneCloud service in August, which it says lowers costs for photo storage, video and other functions by having users contribute idle bandwidth and storage capacity.

“Hopefully we will start to do business in the United States market and European market in the first half of next year,” CEO Lei Chen said in a telephone interview.

Cloud computing is growing fast in China but access for foreign providers is limited by official restrictions on data handling.

Apple Inc. announced in July it would open a data center in China to comply with requirements that information about Chinese citizens be stored in the country. In November, Amazon Inc. sold the hardware for its cloud business in China to a local partner but said it retains ownership of the intellectual property behind it.

Xunlei, based in Shenzhen, plans to begin its foreign expansion in January or February in other markets closer to China, said Chen. He said the company wasn’t ready to disclose details.

Xunlei, founded in 2003, also offers games and other services, but Chen said its foreign venture would focus on cloud computing.

The model of using customers’ bandwidth “will bring us capacity to provide cloud computing at a very low cost, perhaps one-third of the cost of Amazon,” Chen said.

He said Xunlei is developing technology aimed at increasing security by analyzing users’ data without gathering it in a central location.(SD-Agencies)
