This article shows how Alibaba Cloud Global Accelerator can help your business stay better connected and ensure that your services stay online even in the most demanding of scenarios.
GA is a network acceleration product that links two Alibaba Cloud regions through a dedicated network link. One zone is classified as a "service field," while the other is designated as a "accelerated area." The "service area" is the Alibaba Cloud region that hosts the service or program that your users need, while the "accelerated area" is the Alibaba Cloud region that is nearest to your users (say, in China). The accelerated area will usually expose a public IP (a fundamental concept of GA) to users which they can use to access whatever service is hosted in the "service area".
The organization is a typical e-commerce business that sells fashion brands online to their wide customer base in and outside China. Their customers outside China are satisfied with the website access but the users in China don't get a consistent and/or good performance. For users in China, the access is usually slow and unstable, discouraging the shoppers and leading to a considerable fall in sales. To add to the misery, in a week's time, there is a huge global online sales event where they are expecting a substantial increase in website visits.
Hence, the organization needs a quick and definite solution to achieve following:
In some cases, the service your users want to access may not actually be hosted on Alibaba Cloud. In this case, you need to establish a proxy in the Alibaba Cloud "service area" region which can accept requests from the "accelerated area" and forward them on. The following is the typical architecture for a scenario where user access in China is accelerated for a website hosted in Sydney. Global Acceleration (GA) is used to send traffic from China to a proxy server located in Alibaba Cloud's Sydney region, which then forwards user traffic on to the correct address (website).
How does traffic flow in this solution? Let's take a look:
