Cloud Service Interaction

The Cloud Service Interaction feature allows you to configure Anti-DDoS Pro or Anti-DDoS Premium to interact with Global Accelerator instances. This feature delivers the following benefits:
  • If no distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks occur, Global Accelerator provides accelerated access.
  • If Global Accelerator suffers DDoS attacks, the feature redirects traffic to Anti-DDoS Pro or Anti-DDoS Premium for scrubbing. This reduces the impacts that DDoS attacks have on services.

CDN/DCDN Interaction

Anti-DDoS Pro and Anti-DDoS Premium can interact with Dynamic Route for Content Delivery Network (DCDN) to scrub malicious traffic and accelerate content delivery:
  • If no attacks are detected, DCDN accelerates traffic of your workloads.
  • If attacks are detected, traffic of your workloads is automatically redirected to Anti-DDoS Pro or Anti-DDoS Premium and then scrubbed.
  • After the attacks stop, traffic of your workloads is automatically redirected to Alibaba Cloud DCDN.

The Assets page displays the protection status of activated assets under an Alibaba Cloud account. The page provides a quick overview of security risks for your assets from DDoS attacks. On the page, you can also increase the protection capacity for a specified asset. Supported assets include Elastic Compute Service (ECS) instances, Server Load Balancer (SLB) instances, and elastic IP Addresses (EIPs).

Assets
2019-12-18 Elastic protection The preset protection threshold is changed to the elastic protection threshold. The console no longer shows a score in the Security Credibility field.

In elastic protection mode, Anti-DDoS Origin allows you to assign an extra protection capacity for your assets based on the original basic protection capacity that is provided free of charge. The extra protection capacity assigned for an asset changes based on several factors. The factors include the number of resources that an anti-DDoS cluster consumes, available resources, historical attacks that your assets encounter, and security credits of your account.
