System Event: Better Understand the Running Status of an ECS Instance

This blog describes the features of Alibaba Cloud's System Event function for Elastic Compute Service (ECS).

Alibaba Cloud System Event is a functionality for Elastic Compute Service (ECS), which helps users to better understand the running status of an ECS instance. A system event is a scheduled and recorded maintenance event of ECS service. System events occur when updates, invalid operations, unexpected system failures, or unexpected hardware or software failures are detected on your ECS instance. Moreover, you will receive notification about the details of the event in the console when it occurs, including the event response plan and event cycle.

When an ECS user receives a notification from Alibaba Cloud, he or she can acknowledge the planned underlying maintenance for ECS instance by system event. The user can then choose the appropriate time window to execute the system event as well as operation activities according to individual business needs. By providing users this flexibility, users can reduce the impact on system reliability and business continuity.

Enhanced Management of ECS Instances with System Event

Alibaba Cloud's System Event function for Elastic Compute Service (ECS) gives customers better control over their computing resources.

This blog describes the features of Alibaba Cloud System Event in detail:

  1. Multi-Region for Increased Reliability
  2. Proactive Maintenance for Increased Availability
  3. Scheduled Maintenance for Increased Flexibility

ECS instance lifecycle

The lifecycle of an ECS instance begins when the instance is created and ends when the instance is released. This topic describes the states that an ECS instance may go through during its lifecycle.

ECS Instance families

An ECS instance is the smallest unit that can provide compute capabilities and services for your business. Compute capabilities vary based on instance types. This topic describes available ECS instance families, including their features, specifications, and application scenarios.

ECS instances are categorized into different instance families based on their usage scenarios. Each instance family is divided into different instance types based on their CPU and memory specifications. ECS instance type defines the basic properties of an ECS instance, such as CPU, clock speed, and memory. In addition to the instance type, you must also configure the Elastic Block Storage (EBS) devices, image, and network type when you create an ECS instance.
