Functionality of This Module

When opting for a distributed deployment scenario as a developer, you get an option to leverage the best tools that Alibaba Cloud has to offer. With a distributed deployment scenario, the Server Load Balancer (SLB) is used to handle high-load situations and multiple instances of ECS and can be provisioned or deprovisioned elastically without providing additional configuration or steps.

Quick Tip: A How-to on Reverse Proxy

Reverse Proxy on Alibaba Cloud works in a way that it listens to Port 80 every ECS instance. After that, it redirects any http port 80 requests to the application service port.
