Alibaba Cloud Global Accelerator (GA) can provide access points worldwide and accelerate transmission of network traffic. You can configure the GA service based on your requirements. This service can be used in various scenarios, such as online gaming acceleration and application acceleration for multinational companies.
Accelerate transmission of gaming traffic
Driven by constant innovation, online gaming companies strive to deliver an exceptional user experience in highly demanding scenarios such as multiplayer online games.
GA helps global gaming providers to drastically reduce end-to-end network transmission time and allow players to enjoy online games without any network jitters or latency. GA provides players with a consistent and smooth gaming experience. The access points of Alibaba Cloud nearest to the players receive gaming requests and forward the requests to the target origin server through the internal network of Alibaba Cloud. Compared with transmission over the public network, GA shortens the transmission path, reduces latency, network jitters, and packet loss, and improves interaction experience among players.
Accelerate cross-border collaboration
For multinational corporations, their application services and enterprise data are deployed and stored in the countries where their headquarters are located. In such cases, it may be difficult for their branch staff and business partners around the world to access the applications and data due to high network latency and low transmission speed.
Alibaba Cloud GA helps create a dynamic and secure network between a multinational corporation's head office and branch offices across multiple regions.
Accelerate connections to global Internet applications
Connections to applications over the Internet may have issues such as high latency and packet loss. These issues may affect the user experience.
You can use GA to accelerate connections to global applications over the Internet through the high-quality Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) bandwidth and global network of Alibaba Cloud.
