Elastic and secure virtual cloud servers to cater all your cloud hosting needs.
A Kubernetes-based service that ensures high efficiency for enterprises by running containerized applications on the cloud
Server Load Balancer (SLB) distributes network traffic across groups of backend servers to improve the service capability and application availability. It provides functions as a reverse proxy at Layer 7（ALB）and load balancing services at Layer 4 （CLB）.
EIPs are independent public IP address resources, which allow you to decouple public IP addresses from ECS instances and facilitate management.
A NAT gateway enables multiple instances within a virtual private cloud (VPC) to communicate with the Internet. Custom SNAT and DNAT rules can be created to help you use network resources in a flexible manner.
Simple, scalable, on-demand and reliable network attached storage for use with ECS instances, HPC and Container Service.
Block-level data storage attached to ECS instances to achieve high performance, low latency, and high reliability
