Building a private global network requires high financial costs and O&M. Traditional global networks are not scalable during unexpected business changes, affecting business consistency and user experience.
Alibaba Cloud Cloud Enterprise Network (CEN) provides private network interconnection capabilities on and off the cloud. You can access the exclusive hybrid cloud network in all scenarios through Alibaba Cloud Smart Access Gateway (SAG), high-speed channels, and VPN gateway products. Key Features:• Flexible networking capabilities that support fast deployment in minutes• Automatic optimization for global networks with multilayer networks using a redundancy-based resolution• Support on private networks and 4G across mobile devices and PCs
Enterprises face many challenges while building global networks between headquarters and branches, such as the high cost and time requirements of building a private network, O&M, and concerns on network security and reliability.
Smart Access Gateway (SAG) allows you to access Alibaba Cloud's POP servers nearby to build your dedicated network globally for headquarters and branches. For cross-border scenarios, Cloud Enterprise Network (CEN) provides multi-regional high-speed connections. The Alibaba Cloud console provides end-to-end visual monitoring and management capabilities over the entire global network, which simplifies daily operation and maintenance tasks.Key Features:• High reliability supported by multi-level disaster recovery design of devices, links, and access• Multiple deployment methods supported by SAG, including hardware, images, and apps• Elastic bandwidth of SAG and CEN can adapt to business needs to maximize network efficiency
Enterprises need a global network solution to allow remote workers to purchase and start network services flexibly and log on to the enterprise’s internal networks quickly and safely.
