Free credits and various products
Before taken this last step, Tencent Cloud has established US$100 million global anti-COVID-19 funds for the rollout of a global COVID-19 information platform. As a part of this first phase, the company has launched products that can be used in a wide range of scenarios including enabling remote collaboration, facilitating online medical consultation, and helping governments promote access to reliable information. In addition to this, companies and organizations in need can get free credits for some cloud services.
