Business Needs and Challenges

As a professional service provider in the field of video security and smart Internet of Things, Dahua has been actively exploring the global market. Currently, Dahua has established 42 branches in China, overseas Asia-Pacific, Europe, North America, and Latin America.

Business employees located all over the world often encounter high latency when accessing corporate instant messaging and corporate email platforms, which affects business efficiency.

The rapid expansion of Dahua’s business also places more stringent requirements on the reliability of the data center. Enterprises need to ensure the stable operation of global business and improve business continuity. “The establishment of data centers overseas is also lack of economic benefits, and as countries have increasingly strict control over data centers and privacy, we also need to carry out complex compliance certifications for overseas businesses, which will bring more to enterprises. “We must find a strong and reliable cloud service partner,” said Jiang Jinhua, director of the infrastructure at Dahua.
