Cloud Platform

A cloud platform centrally manages data center service resources and provides a user interface (UI) for configuring services. It connects to northbound Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) of Huawei's Agile Controller and delivers service configurations to the Agile Controller for orchestration and deployment. The cloud platform and Agile Controller work together to schedule computing, storage, and network resources.

Some customers may develop their own application portals and connect them to cloud platforms to manage resources, deliver services, and monitor the services.
