Exabytes said in a statement the strategic partnership aims to be the enabler for innovation driving the cloud-first digital transformation journey for businesses in Malaysia and beyond.

“Cloud infrastructure alone will not drive business growth. It has to be supported with business applications in order to achieve the desired business outcomes,” said Chan Kee Siak, Group Chief Executive Officer of Exabytes.

“With Exabytes being an all-in-one business cloud, digital, and e-commerce solutions provider, the support from Huawei’s Cloud platform and our partner ecosystem will be the enabler of innovation when matched with our cloud-first smart solutions,” he added.
