Chinese telecoms equipment maker Huawei is focusing on its budding cloud business, which still has access to US chips despite sanctions against the company, to secure its survival, the Financial Times reported.

Huawei's cloud computing business sells computing power and storage to companies, including giving them access to artificial intelligence, and has been growing rapidly, the newspaper reported on Sunday, citing sources.

In January, Huawei put the unit on an equal footing with its smartphones and telecoms equipment businesses, Financial Times reported.
