Speaking of Guangdong and GBA markets, he said that Guangdong's cloud industry is on the cusp of a period of high-speed growth. Over the past two years, more and more large enterprises started to engage and implement cloud. They are growing less concerned on data security, and become more aware of the benefits that cloud could bring. As such, cloud migration of large enterprises is expected to speed up.
