Alibaba Cloud offers high-performance elastic computing power in the cloud. Services, including data storage, relational databases, big-data processing, Anti-DDoS protection and content delivery networks can be scaled up or down depending on demand, and are available on a pay-as-you-go basis. Having data centres around the world means that network latency is reduced, so you do not have to wait for a page to load or order to process. An example solution is Alibaba Cloud Object Storage Service (OSS) - an easy-to-use service that enables you to store, backup and archive large amounts of data in the cloud. OSS acts as an encrypted central repository, where files can be securely accessed from around the globe.
Established in 2009, Alibaba Cloud (www.alibabacloud.com), the cloud computing arm of Alibaba Group, is among the world's top three cloud (IaaS) providers according to Gartner, and the largest provider of public cloud services in China, according to IDC. Alibaba Cloud has an international network of 18 datacentres - including London, Frankfurt and Dubai – as well as access to Mainland China. Security and reliability are paramount to Alibaba Cloud’s offering. Alibaba’s vast online and mobile commerce ecosystem – including the incredible amount of transactions that take place every year on 11-11 (China’s Black Friday) – is also powered by Alibaba Cloud.
