Implementing Alibaba Cloud ECS along with various services provided by Alibaba Cloud can help businesses achieve nextgen cloud computing objectives.
Digital transformation is dramatically reshaping how businesses operate today. Companies are striving to rapidly shift from being a traditional enterprise to a technology-driven enterprise to accomplish operational excellence. Moving business to the Cloud is definitely on the key agenda for innovation-seeking CIOs focused on transforming their organizations into digital enterprises. A study by BSA on Global Cloud Preparedness illustrates how countries across the globe are making major strides towards cloud adoption.
Traditional organizations with legacy IT infrastructure now endeavor to adopt the cloud-first strategy to achieve growth objectives and overcome on-premises computing challenges such as:
Irrespective of business size and type, the cloud is becoming the default requirement to quickly and easily expand business across the globe. Cloud adoption helps businesses overcome the limitations posed by on-premises computing and adds value at multiple levels. IT cost reduction and better performance are the primary benefits of cloud computing. The following chart from Vanson Bourne's Cloud Adoption and Risk Report lists several other advantages of adopting cloud computing:
Alibaba Cloud Elastic Compute Service (ECS) is a highly scalable and efficient cloud computing service that supports applications by providing elastic and secure cloud servers.
Unlike the traditional models, ECS helps you overcome the scalability challenges to meet real-time demands by allowing instant resource deployment. It allows you to only pay for the resources you use and thus, helps to ease out financial pressure.
Alibaba Cloud ECS makes it easy for enterprises, small-and-medium businesses, and developers to procure virtual servers at a minimum cost in just a few minutes.
Alibaba Cloud ECS is an end-to-end solution to meet your diverse elastic computing requirements. Let's deep dive into various benefits of ECS:
Ease of deployment, performance enhancement, and substantial cost savings make cloud services a win-win situation for businesses. However, selecting the right instance specifications that match your business requirements holds the key; otherwise, you end up spending a considerable cost for resources and services that your business doesn't even need.
Alibaba Cloud ECS offers different instance types to cater to various workloads. While some are ideal for high-performance computing, large storage, and memory-intensive workloads, others support multiple general business scenarios.
To avoid selecting a wrong-size instance type, it is imperative that you understand the key functions of each ECS instance family types.
The following diagram gives an overview of primary instance types to help you discover which one suits your business needs:
In this tutorial, you will learn a bit about MongoDB and how you can install and use MongoDB on an Alibaba Cloud ECS instance installed with Ubuntu 16.
In this article, we will show you how to install and set up a serverless Fn project on an Alibaba Cloud ECS instance installed with Ubuntu 18.04.
Alibaba Cloud Elastic Compute Service (ECS) provides fast memory and the latest Intel CPUs to help you to power your cloud applications and achieve faster results with low latency.
Deploy ECS instances with just a few clicks from the easy-to-use console and scale capacity up or down based on real-time demands.
ECS is a highly flexible solution that can be used independently as a simple web or application server, or used together with other Alibaba Cloud services to deliver advanced solutions.
An ECS instance is a virtual machine that contains basic computing components such as the vCPU, memory, operating system, network, and disk. You can fully customize and modify all configurations of an ECS instance. After you log on to the Alibaba Cloud Management console, you can manage resources and configure the environment of your ECS instances.
