    [EN] Tencent Cloud Servers Float Into Five New Global Locations

    Silicon Valley, Mumbai, Seoul, Moscow, Frankfurt + Hong Kong, Singapore, Toronto.

    Apr 26, 2017

    Leading internet company Tencent Holdings Ltd. said on Wednesday it will more than double the number of global data centers for its cloud computing service this year as it plays catch-up with rival Alibaba in developing the global market.

    Tencent said it opened the first of the five new centers this week in Silicon Valley, according to a company announcement. The other four new centers will be in Mumbai, India; Seoul, South Korea; Moscow; and Frankfurt, Germany.

    The additions will bring Tencent’s count of such offshore centers to eight, complementing its three existing facilities in Hong Kong, Singapore and Toronto. Tencent added the Hong Kong and new Silicon Valley centers are both slated for expansion this year.

    Such centers usually host websites and offsite services for local client companies, which prefer to have their virtual products based on servers in or near their home market to improve download speeds. Typical customers for such centers include operators of online games, financial companies and web-based video services.

    “We want to enhance our overseas cloud capability to meet the rising demand from companies around the world as they look for fast, reliable, secure and cost-effective services during the global expansion and migration to the cloud era,” Tencent Cloud Vice President Rita Zeng said.

    Tencent said revenue from its cloud unit more than tripled in 2016 from the previous year. The company is one of a growing number in China trying to develop the fast-growing and potentially lucrative domestic market for cloud services, alongside such domestic players as Huawei Technologies Co. Ltd. and global giants like Amazon.com Inc.

    Tencent’s global expansion mirrors a similar move by China’s other leading internet company Alibaba Group Holding Ltd. Alibaba announced the opening of four new cloud centers late last year, bringing its global total to 14.

    Late last year, Tencent also announced its own new cloud tie-up with U.S. software giant Oracle Corp. Under that deal, Tencent agreed to act as local partner for rolling out Oracle's cloud-computing product in China, with an eventual aim of integrating the U.S. company’s products into its own popular WeChat instant messaging platform.

    Tencent to Beat Alibaba, Baidu Says Asia Fund Pro

    Dimitra DeFotis
    April 25, 2017

    ...

    Internet penetration in China is still relatively low, and Alibaba, JD.com and Tencent Holdings “haven’t really had to compete with each other’s businesses yet,” says Arthur Kwong, head of Asia ex-Japan equities at BNP Paribas Investment Partners. He told Barron’s Asia reporter Daniel Shane recently that Tencent could be the winner in a decade. Kwong is underweight Alibaba and Baidu and overweight Tencent. Here’s Kwong’s assessment of China’s internet players:

    ” … [Tencent] has the integration of mobile from instant messaging all the way down to e-commerce and games. Tencent has a good e-commerce partner in JD.com, even if it’s a far second to Alibaba. What Tencent can do in the future is integrate JD.com’s system into its payments platform Tenpay and social network Wechat. In terms of risk profile, Tenpay is lower than Alipay. Alibaba’s finance strategy is to be more aggressive in lending, whereas Tencent is working with a bank to do risk assessment on granting loans. Everywhere Tencent overall seems to be more conservative in the way they do things, and they’re more diversified compared to the other two. The key assets for Baidu are maps and search. Unfortunately search is becoming less popular because everyone downloads an app for anything they regularly search for. If you want a food service you download an app for that. You don’t go to Baidu and search for, say, “food in Shanghai” anymore …”

    "The key assets for Baidu are maps and search. Unfortunately search is becoming less popular because everyone downloads an app for anything they regularly search for."

    IMO um problema bem maior é não ser possivel obter "timeline". É uma falha estrutural grave da Web não existir data de criação/modificação de conteúdo. Resultados em sites de buscas genéricas são cada vez mais irrelevantes, para não dizer uma perda de tempo. Por exemplo, para pesquisas envolvendo "open source", retorna quase sempre resultados inuteis devido ao "dinamismo" do software -- sem compromisso com compatibilidade com versões anteriores. O mesmo para estatisticas, estudos, opiniões, etc. Sem falar na apropriação da Wikipedia ... sempre "a mais relevante".

    China’s tech giants are pouring billions into US start-ups

    Rebecca Fannin
    9 Mar 2017

    ...

    China's tech titans Baidu, Alibaba and Tencent are leading a surge of Chinese investment in cutting-edge U.S. technology start-ups with bold ambitions to expand their footprint, attract top talent and gain an edge in innovation.

    Collectively known as the BAT, China's giant technology companies that dominate search, e-commerce and mobile messaging in their home market are going global. The United States is their primary shopping place to diversify and build out their brands. The hunt is on to acquire or buy into fast-growing young companies in a broad range of the hottest tech sectors, such as virtual reality, fintech, social media, video games and mobile apps. Their deals include such well-known American brands as image messaging app Snap, ride-sharing service Lyft and virtual reality player Magic Leap.

    China's four largest internet companies — the BAT plus e-commerce company JD.com — have invested $5.6 billion in 48 U.S. tech deals over the past two years, according to CBI Insights data. California took in more than three-quarters of the total U.S.-based deals by these four companies, with Silicon Valley a popular hunting ground.

    Overall, Chinese investment in the U.S. economy has soared, with such high-profile deals as China's Anbang Insurance purchase of the landmark Waldorf-Astoria hotel in New York City for $1.95 billion.

    Last year Chinese investors put a record $45.6 billion in U.S. companies, triple the amount for 2015, according to research group Rhodium Group in New York City. The momentum has picked up as the Chinese economy has slowed and as the U.S. dollar has appreciated against the Chinese yen, points out Rhodium economist Thilo Hanemann.

    ..

    For the founders of U.S. tech start-ups, getting cozy with Chinese acquirers and investors can make good business sense. With a Chinese investor, their business gains a competitive edge in the exceedingly difficult-to-penetrate China market. Getting funds from China's leading tech companies can help U.S. companies gain an entry point to China, an immediate on-the-ground presence and strategic insights such as how to best customize products for the local Chinese market.

    China's Alibaba acts to fulfill promise made to Trump: create 1M jobs in the US

    @PaulMozur: If I promise to eat 1 million pizzas and then schedule a day to go to the pizzeria, that's also acting to fulfill my promise right?


    Du Mingming
    April 27, 2017

    Jack Ma, chairman of Alibaba Group Holding Ltd, is acting to fulfill a promise he made to US President Donald Trump: Get 1 million small and medium-sized US businesses enrolled on his online platforms to sell their products to China's growing middle class and create 1 million jobs in the United States.

    Ma announced on Tuesday that Alibaba will host a two-day conference in Detroit in June to teach US businesses how to sell to the company's 443 million customers in China on the world's biggest e-commerce site.

    "We are already a gateway for thousands of global brands, retailers and companies to sell to Chinese consumers. And we want to expand that gateway (and) level the playing field to make it easy for American entrepreneurs, small businesses and farmers alike to take advantage of the China opportunity," said Ma, also Alibaba's founder, in an open letter.

    Called the Gateway 17, the conference will be held on June 20-21 and is expected to attract more than 1,000 US businesses, the company said in a statement. Ma will speak at the event.

    Ma met Trump in New York in January, shortly after he was elected, to discuss how Alibaba could help create jobs in the US. Ma promised he would help create 1 million jobs over five years by enabling small businesses to sell goods on Alibaba's e-commerce platforms primarily on its Taobao and Tmall websites.

    Jennifer Kuperman, head of international corporate communications at Alibaba, said that the 1 million figure is nothing but "conservative".

    "If you think about the number of businesses on our platform, if they even hire one person to help with the demand from Chinese consumers, that gets you to a million jobs; so that's very simple. And that we think it's basically conservative, because we believe that we're going to make it larger than that in the next five years," said Kuperman.

    Brion Tingler, head of external affairs for Alibaba, said that Detroit is an ideal location for the event.

    "Detroit has a long history of selling to China. Detroit is also considered home to some of America's greatest ingenuity and innovation and its location is convenient to attract small business people and farmers from the heartland," he said.

    Michigan Governor Rick Snyder said that China is an "important and viable market for a wide range of products and services. This event will open doors for Michigan businesses, farmers and entrepreneurs by helping them identify and enter into new relationships there".

    Brian Gao, president of the Detroit Chinese Business Association, said his group is excited that Detroit will be the host city.

    "The DCBA views Jack Ma as one of the most important entrepreneurs in the 21st century, and to host his only scheduled public speaking engagement for 2017 in Detroit is a seminal moment for our organization and the state of Michigan," Gao said.
