With the development of IT infrastructure and cloud computing, cross-region or even global expansion is not a privilege for super large enterprises, all businesses are able to serve global customers by building a global network. Success of cross-region business relies heavily on integration of different offices and branches for companies. From data and file transmission to CRM and ERP system integration, an efficient and reliable network is vital for basic business operations.

For companies that have their own on-premises data center, some type of interconnect is required to access products and services hosted on the cloud. Today, traditional methods of connection through a VPN often cannot meet enterprise speed, stability, security, and compliance requirements.

In this session, you will learn about how Alibaba Cloud deploys our infrastructure, and global network services, which are designed to help you connect multiple regions around world seamlessly and easily.

A CI/CD pipeline is pivotal to a well-functioning DevOps environment. A complete CI/CD pipeline offers many advantages: as soon as a developer commits specific changes, the CI part of the pipeline compiles, tests, analyzes the code and immediately sends a notification if there's a problem. The CD part of the pipeline packages and deploys the application in the cloud. There are many advantages in making this part automatic: it saves time for the organization, reduces human mistakes, and allows the team to deploy the application at any time.

This webinar aims to provide an introduction into CI/CD by showing how to build a CI/CD pipeline to deploy a web application to Alibaba Cloud automatically. You will learn how to reduce the deployment complexity by building an immutable infrastructure with Terraform and Packer. As a developer, this helps to create a secure, highly available and auto-scalable architecture.
