AI Surge's mission is to empower business teams for fast and interactive analytics on large and complex datasets. It understands the importance of data for customers, but it also understands the need to tackle the challenges with overvaluing the process of data.

Why Alibaba Cloud
AI Surge needed a cloud platform that is agile, cost effective, secure, and compliant to build their data solution for running fast and accurate analytics on large datasets. AI Surge eventually chose Alibaba Cloud as its cloud provider for the excellent support and easy to use platform. In addition, Alibaba Cloud's flexible pricing options and cost-effective solutions allow AI Surge to scale their resources quickly while keeping costs at a minimum.04
AI Surge's ultimate goal is to implement an easy-to-use application that allows data owners to work on their data without writing a single line of code, while ensuring that the data is processed using industry-leading technologies.
To achieve this, AI Surge leveraged a host of cloud products from Alibaba Cloud, including Container Service for Kubernetes, ApsaraDB for MongoDB, Elastic Compute Service (ECS), Object Storage Service (OSS), and Server Load Balancer(SLB). These products, as well as Alibaba Cloud's dedicated support, enabled AI Surge to build a unified platform, allowing users to apply ACID transaction on top of their Data Lake assets.
The team at AI Surge hopes to continue its successful partnership with Alibaba Cloud and experiment with more products and services in the near future. It hopes to develop more user-centric capabilities for various use cases, including Data Processing on Edge, PDF Scan Data, Visual SQL builder, and Industry-Specific AI & BI Tools.
