In this e-book, we'll explain how you can grow and succeed for your business.

Alibaba Cloud works with businesses big and small, all over the world. We explain how you can grow your business from the start-up to global enterprise in our e-book Starting Out: Alibaba Cloud for New Businesses.

The small business market is booming but it's a competitive space with half of all businesses failing after the first five years.

At Alibaba Cloud, we've helped many customers setup and grow their businesses. Here are the top four technologies to help you overcome the challenges to grow and succeed in the competitive start-up space, helping you set up your business with minimal resources and for maximum impact.

1. Simple Application Server

Every business now needs a digital presence. Our Simple Application Server provides a cheap, easy and quick option to get you online. In fact, you can set up your website with just a couple of clicks thanks to the intuitive interface and our flat pricing starts from just $3.50 per month.

Simple Application Server supports a range of additional services, allowing you to not only publish your website with ease but also set up and resolve your domain name. From online security to O&M, you can also access a range of services to give you everything you need, going forward, to run your online applications with confidence.

2. Content Delivery Network

Once your website and other applications are online, you want to give users the best experience possible. This is where our Content Delivery Network (CDN) comes in.

This service allows you to efficiently acquire the resources you need, avoids possible network congestion issues that could slow your services down, and enhances the user experience.

You can use CDN to accelerate your website and reduce response times to the millisecond range. You can also use CDN to boost your on-demand and live streaming capabilities, providing a smooth and high-quality viewing experience for your customers.

3. Database Decisions

You'll need a robust database solution to store, process, analyze and manage your data to support and add value to your business. There are many options to choose from but the ApsaraDB RDS for MySQL is a popular option for many new businesses.

This is because ApsaraDB RDS for MySQL is an on-demand database service that frees you from the administrative tasks of managing a database, so you can focus on your core business.

This comprehensive solution can also protect against network attacks and intercepts SQL injections, brute force attacks and other types of database attacks. There are no upfront costs or long-term commitments to the service, which also offers flexible payment options. The ApsaraDB for RDS service also supports up to 2TB of storage for every server instance, so it's a highly scalable option.

4. ApsaraVideo Live

Live streaming has taken the world by storm and could give you the competitive edge your new business needs. Our ApsaraVideo Live service is a live video and audio broadcasting platform. It allows you to live-stream high-definition video and audio content into many regions and is easily managed through the Alibaba Cloud Console.

It's also incredibly easy to set up with a few, simple steps, helping you to reach out to a global audience using the latest technologies. As a result, your customers can watch and buy during live videos, as presenters demonstrate your products to influence user decision-making and strike deals.

5. Security Services

Any security breach is serious but, for new businesses, you can struggle to repair the damage to both your business and brand. That's why Alibaba Cloud provides a comprehensive, end-to-end range of Security Services to protect your infrastructure, identity and wider business.
