Global Network Solution

Alibaba Cloud's global infrastructure and cloud-native SD-WAN technology-based solution can help you build a dedicated global network to connect core businesses across peripherals worldwide with high elasticity, enterprise-level data privacy, and high-quality networking.

Why Us

Typically, multinational enterprises face three major challenges with cross-border networking, namely: public network cannot assure the level of network security and reliability required for their business, legacy network (physical leased line) is complex to deploy and manage, and finally, enterprises need to continually secure their cloud service endpoints while making them accessible worldwide.

Alibaba Cloud Global Network solution can help our customers substantially solve above challenges. Our solution provides E2E data transmission encryption, global network coverage and ultra-low latency to eliminate enterprises' security and reliability concerns. Meanwhile minute level deployment and centralized maintenance and operation (M&O) platform simplify the network initial set up and ongoing management. In addition, our smart routing mechanism and enterprise grade reliability can enable your cloud service endpoints seamlessly access worldwide.
