As consumer demand for online shopping escalates, smart enterprises are reacting with the provision of a seamless and scalable e-retail solution. It’s vital for retailers to provide a high-performance, stable, reliable and scalable solution for shoppers. However, this is becoming increasingly challenging as artificial intelligence becomes a commonly used tool, video content abounds, and the number of online shoppers continues to grow.

Events such as the Double 11 Global Shopping Festival test retailers and their online services to the limits. This means that the ability to scale elastically is a vital quality for any business that wants to thrive in today’s competitive digital world. It allows you to quickly expand and decrease your computer processing, memory and storage resources to keep pace with changing demands in the most cost-effective way possible.

As a result, you don’t have to worry about engineering your systems for peak usage, making capacity plans or managing the extremes of service outages and idle resources during peaks and troughs in demand.

Introducing ECS

For the Double 11 event, the fast memory and low latency capabilities of ECS helped power a vast range of cloud applications. Alibaba Cloud recently introduced the 6th Generation of ECS, based on the X-Dragon Architecture. The 3rd Generation of the X-Dragon architecture fully supported the 2019 shopping event, where its servers seamlessly integrated our computing platforms into a single architecture, improving their cost efficiency by 20 percent.

AI-Enabled Improvements

Further research reveals that the integrated artificial intelligence features of X-Dragon can help our customers realize a 30 percent increase in the queries-per-second rate and a decrease in latency by 60 percent. These improved metrics enable dramatic improvements in an array of e-commerce scenarios, and reduce the power wastage from physical severs because this is a cloud-based solution.

Record-Breaking Performance
