China Tonghai International Financial Limited is a Hong Kong-based financial services group, which is listed on the Main Board of The Stock Exchange of Hong Kong Limited.
Tonghai Financial is committed to building a comprehensive, fully-licensed integrated financial platform. The core businesses of the company include brokerage, interest income, corporate finance, asset management, and investments. It strives to become the ideal partner for both corporate and individual investors in Hong Kong and Mainland China through its premier one-stop financial services.02
New businesses and ideas appear every day, and the agility and scalability of IT infrastructure is key to ensuring the success of an enterprise. Tonghai Financial needed a solution that could support its testing and production environments, and one that was catered to both normal traffic to unpredictable events. These concerns, as well as the ever-changing regulations on data security and compliance in the financial industry, convinced the team at Tonghai Financial to adopt a cloud-based IT infrastructure.03
Why Alibaba Cloud
With the support of Alibaba Cloud, the agility and scalability of its IT infrastructure can be guaranteed. Alibaba Cloud's full range of security solutions, such as Anti-DDoS, Cloud Firewall, and Security Center, enhanced the security posture of Tonghai Financial and also helped to fulfill regulatory requirements. Furthermore, Alibaba Cloud's robust networking solutions greatly improved the experience of users accessing services to and from Mainland China.04
The solution deployed by the team at Tonghai Financial include Global Accelerator to improve the user experience in Mainland China, Cloud Firewall to provide enhanced security protection for its network, and ApsaraDB RDS for MySQL to simplify its setup and operations. The combination of these products by Alibaba Cloud enabled Tonghai Financial to establish a reliable environment for its applications and systems in Hong Kong and Mainland China.05
This solution could not have been realized without the support of our regional partner, NC Services Ltd. Through this partnership, we were able to provide the following services for Tonghai Financial:
- 24x7 monitoring and remote managed services
- Incident management
- Problem management
- Services review and improvement06
Tonghai Financial is planning to migrate more applications and systems to Alibaba Cloud in the future. Its IT engineers can now be more focused on their jobs and minimize the workload on building infrastructure and hardware maintenance.
