Alibaba Cloud Global Application Acceleration provides high-speed network connectivity that helps avoid latency and packet loss.

How Does Alibaba Cloud Global Application Acceleration Work?

1.  Accelerate Websites, Mobile Applications, and Application Services

Challenges

The key to customer satisfaction is the quality of your website, mobile apps, and applications, especially for industries with latency-sensitive services like e-commerce, finance, aviation, hospitality, media, and education. Delays can cause a dramatic increase in bounce rate.

The Alibaba Cloud Global Application Acceleration Solution

Multiple VPCs and regions can be accessed quickly and securely with this solution. It accelerates your global network through the deployment of acceleration nodes, regardless of where your domain name is located. In addition to improving the video network experience, this solution can boost services with Alibaba Cloud CDN, ensuring cybersecurity and application security using Anti-DDoS (in conjunction with Web Application Firewall (WAF)) to mitigate attacks. You can visualize backend service availability through the health check mechanism based on the Alibaba Cloud availability zones.

2.  Streamline Enterprise Applications

Challenges

If traditional enterprise network solutions fail to meet the connectivity needs of an international workforce, you may choose to implement multiple clouds and SaaS solutions.

The Alibaba Cloud Global Application Acceleration Solution

Alibaba Cloud Global Application Acceleration provides network and application acceleration for leading enterprise applications, including Microsoft Office 365, Salesforce, SAP, Workday, G-Suite, and Zoom. High reliability and service availability are also features of this solution. Enterprise internal staff will benefit from shorter transmission latency when visiting web applications (regardless of their location.) Furthermore, WAF prevents or mitigates malicious attacks or intrusions by detecting traffic precisely. Furthermore, Alibaba Cloud provides a comprehensive domain name resolution and smart traffic steering so you can access your applications quickly, easily, and reliably.

3.  To IPv4 from IPv6

Challenges

There has been an increase in IPv6 clients that need to connect to IPv4 applications because of the rapid development of IPv6. How can IPv6 clients and IPv4 applications communicate with each other to meet business needs?

The Alibaba Cloud Global Application Acceleration Solution

IPv6 clients can request GA instances. GA allows you to convert IPv6 addresses to IPv4 addresses and forward requests to IPv4 applications on the origin servers. This way, your application can process requests from IPv6 clients without application modifications.

Solution-Driven Approaches from Global Applications for Industries

1.  Enhanced Gaming Network Solution

Challenges

As all players are on one server, it simplifies the architecture, saves time and money, and reduces deployment costs. However, it also causes network latency issues, jitter, and packet loss for multi-geographical player access. Security and availability of game servers are also essential.

The Alibaba Cloud Solution

Alibaba Cloud Global Acceleration provides a secure, reliable global network that allows users to access the closest Alibaba Cloud network, eliminating the impact of Internet packet loss and jitter on business. Alibaba Cloud ensures financial system security and the continuity and reliability of services with the help of Anti-DDoS and WAF.
