Bring Your Content Closer to Customers

CDN supports large file delivery, hybrid acceleration of dynamic and static content delivery, data transmission using non-standard protocols, programmable computing, and end-to-end IPv6. A wide range of CDN solutions developed based on practical experience are available for various business scenarios, such as application store downloads, e-commerce promotions, online education, financial security, social communication, game acceleration, and multimedia streaming.

Common Scenarios

Bursts of user requests on a website increase the downlink bandwidth consumption, overload the server, and result in slow response times. CDN provides more than 3,200 worldwide nodes and an intelligent scheduling system to give users to access a myriad of static resources cached on nearby nodes within milliseconds.
  • Cost-Effectiveness: Generates fewer costs on downlink bandwidth than dedicated bandwidth. This effectively offloads bandwidth pressure on origin servers.

  • High-Performance: Adopts the distributed system architecture and provides high-performance Alibaba Cloud caching software to achieve high stability and efficiency.

  • Efficient Scheduling: Supports real-time monitoring of full data based on domain names and intelligent scheduling based on services.
Accelerates downloading, the delivery of large files, and on-demand streaming. Large files include MP4 files, FLV files, and files larger than 20 MB.
  • Reduced Back-to-Origin Costs: Works with Object Storage Service (OSS) to reduce up to 66.7% of back-to-origin costs.

  • High Performance: Adopts the distributed system architecture and provides high-performance Alibaba Cloud caching software to achieve high stability and efficiency.

  • Efficient Scheduling: Supports real-time monitoring of full data based on domain names and intelligent scheduling based on services.
Integrates audio and video uploading, automatic transcoding, and media resource management to provide an all-in-one acceleration solution for on-demand streaming. This helps build a secure, elastic, and highly customizable on-demand streaming platform or application.
  • Efficient, Automatic, and Professional Media Processing: Supports user-defined audio and video processing workflows, including the visualized configuration of transcoding, snapshots, and watermarks.

  • Access Control and Copyright Protection: Allows you to configure HTTP Referrer blacklist and whitelist and advanced URL signing to prevent leeches.

  • Smooth Playback without Stuttering: Provides high stability and high performance with a cache hit ratio higher than 95% and a response time within milliseconds.
CDN includes an audio and video livestreaming platform developed based on the industry-leading content access and delivery network with large-scale, distributed real-time transcoding technologies. CDN provides an all-in-one acceleration solution for media data storage, file segment transcoding, access authentication, and content delivery.
  • High Availability: Works with Auto Scaling to adjust the server bandwidth and handle burst traffic quickly.

  • Scalability: Works with ApsaraVideo Media Processing (MPS) to achieve high-speed, stable, and parallel transcoding. This allows you to run multiple transcoding tasks seamlessly.

  • Fast Video Decoding: Caches groups of pictures (GOPs) of frames on CDN edge nodes. This allows mobile playback clients to buffer the content quickly.
