The Ultra-Performance Cloud Computing Era
Unparalleled Computing Power
Alibaba Cloud computing services are based on the 4th generation X-Dragon architecture. The performance has been comprehensively improved compared to the previous generation. Storage IOPS is 300%, network PPS is 100%, and network latency fell by 80%. At the same time, it was upgraded to a brand new eRDMA network architecture. It is the industry's first large-scale elastic RDMA acceleration capability.
Alibaba Cloud ECS is backed by a world-leading Service Level Agreement (SLA) that guarantees 99.975% availability for individual instances and 99.995% availability for cross-zone multi-instance setups.
Reliability and Scalability You Can Trust
Alibaba Cloud elastic computing services are resilient to traffic spikes and apply to nearly 300 scenarios across different industries, such as the Internet, finance, and retail. DingTalk successfully leveraged these services to scale up and deploy 100,000 Elastic Compute Service (ECS) instances within two hours.
Continuous R&D and Evolution
Over the last decade, Alibaba Cloud saw a 2,000-time increase in storage performance, a 500-time increase in network performance, and an average doubling of overall computing power per year.
