Microsoft Corp. has pulled Huawei Technologies Co. Ltd.'s products from one of its cloud server catalogs after the Chinese technology giant got blacklisted by the U.S. government, Bloomberg News reported May 23.
Microsoft declined to comment on whether it will rescind Huawei's Windows license.
The U.S. Commerce Department issued a temporary license that will allow American companies to continue doing business with Huawei for the next three months. The license, effective through Aug. 19, scales back the restrictions imposed by the U.S. government on Huawei and will allow the company to purchase U.S. goods so it can help existing customers maintain the reliability of networks and equipment.
Companies that have recently cut ties with Huawei include Intel Corp., Qualcomm Inc., British chipmaker ARM Holdings PLC and Japanese conglomerate Panasonic Corp.
