Chinese firm plans to launch US cloud computing service

Chinese tech company Xunlei announced it’s planning to launch a cloud computing service in the United States and Europe next year.

Xunlei launched its OneCloud service in August 2017, which lowers costs for photo storage, video, and other functions by having users contribute idle bandwidth and storage capacity.

CEO at Xunlei, Lego Chen, said: “Hopefully we will start to do business in the United States market and European market in the first half of next year.

“We will use artificial intelligence to process users’ own data to help us to service them better, but we don’t want to know what artificial intelligence understands about our users.”

Chen also noted the company has received more than 18 million orders for the hardware to operate OneCloud.
