Taiwan's biggest telecommunications company, Chunghwa Telecom, signed an agreement Monday (July 5) with Quanta Computer, the world's largest contract laptop maker, to jointly develop cloud computing software, services and hardware products aimed at markets in Asia.

The companies will focus on Taiwan first, offering Web storage and services hosting as well as projects tailored to customer needs, they said in a joint statement. They will also create new products and services. The companies hope to lead government offices, businesses and more into cloud computing through the initiative.

"The biggest challenge to entering cloud computing services is providing the rich applications and services that attract big clients," the statement says. "Under the framework of this memorandum of understanding, Chunghwa Telecom and Quanta Computer will cooperate to develop software, hardware, and systems platforms as well as testing, certification and more."
