The world is now online, and a web presence is a vital component for any organization that wants to guarantee its future. This web presence may take the form of a business website, application or any other online solution to empower your enterprise.
Alibaba Cloud provides an extensive range of web hosting solutions for businesses of all sizes. We can help you get online with the minimum disruption to your business, while reducing your development, maintenance and IT costs and guaranteeing your online stability and security. In this post, we will introduce our systems and outline our different web hosting options.
Alibaba Cloud’s Elastic Compute Service (ECS) is the backbone of our network. This online computing service provides organizations the world over with elastic and secure virtual cloud servers, which are the perfect web hosting solution.
We recently launched our 6th generation instances, increasing performance by 15 percent compared to the previous generation of chips, and providing 3.2 GHz of processing speed. These instances also provide superior performance with a packet loss rate of less than 0.0001 percent, delivering exceptional data transmission across your online networks.
If a high-performance ECS is overkill for your business needs, you can consider our Starter Packages. They are ideal for entry-level users, giving you easy access to our high-performance virtual machines and can be set up in seconds.
All you need to do is sign up for an Alibaba Cloud account, create and connect to an ECS instance and configure your security settings. Our Starter Packages cost as little as $2.50 per month and our team are available to help you every step of the way.
ECS for Small-to-Medium Enterprises (SMEs)
For enterprise-level users, you may need a solution that provides cost-effective internet traffic as well as the capability to support large number of concurrent connections. We offer a feature-rich set of web hosting packages that can be tailored to your exact business requirements.
Our ECS for Enterprises packages are simple to install and manage, giving you the information you need to choose the best solution. We provide four types of ECS for Enterprise web hosting solutions.
- Network Enhancement helps enterprises that need a high PPS (Packets Per Second) rate. A high PPS is a vital capability for organizations that, for example, need to protect against DDoS attacks, want to seamlessly analyze large volumes of data, complete regular batch processing or video encoding.
- High-Frequency Compute Type is ideal for organizations that require high-performance web servers to power the most demanding workloads with exceptional storage and processing capabilities that exceed standard compute performances.
- Local SSD Type provides a robust OLTP (Online Transactional Processing) solution, where small amounts of data are regularly inserted, updated and/or deleted into a database. This solution is also suitable for both relational and NoSQL databases.
- GPU Compute Type gives enterprises a massive 440GB SSD Cloud Disk. As such, this package is ideal for organizations working in cutting-edge fields such as deep learning, scientific computing or any discipline that needs to encode large multimedia files and develop high-end GPU compute applications.
