Singapore to become AliCloud's overseas headquarters
 
 
 Singapore, August 19, 2015 – AliCloud, Alibaba Group's (NYSE: BABA)
cloud computing arm, today announced that it will establish a new cloud data
center in Singapore. Its headquarters for overseas business will also be based
out of Singapore to drive AliCloud's overseas expansion plan. Scheduled for an
early September launch, the Singapore facility will be the seventh globally.

 The new cloud data center leverages on Alibaba
Group's recent US$1 billion investment for cloud computing, and will enable
more businesses to benefit from secure and reliable AliCloud-powered cloud
services while riding on record foreign direct investment flows in Southeast
Asia.

 "Singapore is a natural destination to be
our headquarters for overseas expansion. The city state is a natural
springboard into the Asia Pacific region, not only for us, but for our target
audience. We are seeing healthy demand for cloud-related data management
services in Singapore because of the ease of doing business, comprehensive
transport and telecommunications connections and robust intellectual property
regime. The stable geo-political climate and abundance of highly skilled talent
are advantages too," said Sicheng (Ethan) Yu, Vice President of AliCloud.

 With direct connections to AliCloud's data center
network via Beijing, Hangzhou, Qingdao, Hong Kong, Shenzhen, and Silicon
Valley, the Singapore cloud data center will cater to the cloud computing needs
of businesses investing in Southeast Asia with Chinese businesses being a key
focus.

 "The cloud data center in Singapore is a key
milestone in our strategy to help businesses of all sizes innovate and scale,
wherever they are based, and however they choose to grow," said Sicheng
(Ethan) Yu, Vice President of AliCloud. "AliCloud offers a unique
combination of services for success in the cloud, including high-volume
cloud-based transaction support and quality assurance for cloud computing
services."

 In the June quarter this year, AliCloud's revenue
growth from cloud computing and Internet infrastructure increased 106%
year-on-year, driven by the accelerated growth of its cloud computing business
compared to 82% in the prior quarter.

 AliCloud has successfully established itself as
the market leader in cloud computing services in China. Security and
reliability are AliCloud hallmarks. AliCloud is the first cloud security
provider to earn ISO27001 Information Security Management System Certification
in China. It is also the first cloud service provider to offer Cloud Security
Alliance (CSA) Star certification for its facilities all over the world. CSA
Star certification is an enhancement to the ISO/IEC 27001 standard that
addresses issues around cloud security.

 AliCloud's expertise with extremely massive
workloads in the cloud is proven. It supplies the technology infrastructure for
Alibaba Group and provides sophisticated networking solutions, big-data
intelligence products and large-scale cloud computing services to third
