The Evolution of Networking

When Alibaba Cloud launched ten years ago, networking was already fundamental to communications and connectivity. However, the idea of a massive-scale, highly stable, low latency, and high-speed network that enables cross-region connections was still some way off.

Flexible and Secure

Cloud Enterprise Network (CEN) makes it easy to build reliable private networks, allowing for secure and seamless communication across the Mainland China region.

The Ultimate Test

Alibaba Cloud’s Networking capabilities are put to the test every year at the Global Shopping Festival, known as Double 11. Services such as Cloud Enterprise Network (CEN), Virtual Private Cloud (VPC), Server Load Balancer (SLB), Network Address Translation (NAT) gateway, and Express Connect play a vital role in reducing traffic peaks and enabling successful payments for millions of shoppers.[2]

Looking Forward

Networks must continue to evolve rapidly in the coming years as increasing numbers of connected devices and Internet of Things-enabled products come online and require network access.
