Ensuring that you are familiar with cloud technology services and techniques will help your journey into cloud computing run smoothly from the start and continue to be effective over time.
Although cloud computing bears many similarities to running servers and other IT infrastructure in-house, there are also notable differences, as well as some unique considerations such as costing and billing. Consequently, moving to the cloud can sometimes be a little daunting. And when the move is underway, it’s natural to be concerned that you may not be doing things in the most efficient way.
It’s best practice to ensure that you are familiar with services and techniques so that you can leverage them from the very start of your journey into cloud computing.
For example, creating, operating and maintaining cloud-based servers on Alibaba Cloud is simple and very cost-effective. Choosing the right billing option can help to keep costs down, and significant reductions are available if you commit to pay in advance. Powerful tools can help you monitor your servers’ performance, provide very quick recovery from disaster, and protect your servers from DDoS attacks.
