Huawei Cloud Foundry CaaS

“Can we deploy 300 or 400 containers per minute?” This question was asked by Huawei Chief Architect Dr. Ying Xiong as the company worked to create its Communications-as-a-Service (CaaS) architecture with Cloud Foundry.

The company’s CaaS solution integrates cloud-based open API services with secure, managed API calls. Huawei can deploy more than 4,500 applications with its CaaS, which has been in development since 2013. A general overview of the CaaS architecture is provided in the slide below.

In doing so, several use cases emerged. Read more from Dr. Xiong in Altoros’ original article, “Huawei CaaS Deploys 4,500+ Apps with Cloud Foundry.”
