Alibaba Cloud offers a dynamic asset known as Light Space for users that need a lightweight turn-key virtual private server (VPS). Starting from $19.90 for the first year, this affordable VPS solution from Alibaba Cloud is an isolated cloud server that contains a cost-effective SSD powered by 2nd Gen Intel® Xeon® Scalable Processors and includes multiple types of data transfer plans.
You can build Light Space in 11 Alibaba Cloud regions available worldwide, including US West (Silicon Valley), US East (Virginia), Australia (Sydney), Germany (Frankfurt), China (Hong Kong), Singapore, Indonesia (Jakarta), Japan (Tokyo), Malaysia (Kuala Lumpur), India (Mumbai), and UK (London). The product will be deployed in other regions in the future.
Light Space is also connected to a wide array of popular app images, such as WordPress, LAMP, Docker, Drupal, Node.js, Joomla, Ghost, OpenCart, Plesk, and cPanel, as well as OS images, including OpenSUSE, CentOS, Debian, Ubuntu, Windows, and Alibaba Cloud Linux. You can also select your custom image.
Alibaba Cloud Simple Application Server (SAS) is a specific new computing solution constructed as a standalone application with elastic resources, such as networking capabilities, computing, and storage. It allows novice administrators to build a VPS cloud computing product in no time with its simplistic one-click deployment methodology. Also, one of the most critical questions comes in around Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery (BCDR). Simple Application Server provides snapshots for backup strategies.
There are a variety of use cases, including the necessity of organizations to have a segregated server for compliance reasons and healthcare or financial server requirements that need dedicated virtual hardware or have stringent constraints.
The following step-by-step guide explains how to create a Virtual Private Server (VPS) using Simple Application Server (SAS) from the Alibaba Cloud console.
Note: The price will vary depending on the Subscription Time. Longer subscriptions will result in lower costs.
Once the payment process is finished, your Simple Application Server instance will be ready to use:
These lightweight solutions can be deployed and used easily without deploying the physical hosts or configuring hardware yourself. Light Space contains an SSL certificate service that allows network isolation, self-diagnosis, operational logging, access to the Alibaba Cloud Marketplace for images or public images, and a well-established API to drive deployment success exponentially.
