- Public network:
A public network PublicIP (which cannot be added individually) is configured for each Simple Application Server, and fixed public network bandwidth communication is also configured. Note: the public network PublicIP for a VPC is a NAT IP address, which cannot be queried through command lines through the machine.
Multiple Simple Application Server instances in the same account are in the same VPC Intranet by default. Interconnection among multiple instances is achieved through Intranet. Intranet has a 1Gbps shared bandwidth.
Simple Application Server integrates with multiple Alibaba Cloud products to help you set up and manage applications. The main types are as follows and will be added in the future.
- Domain name resolution, specifying a domain name and directing the domain name to an IP address to a current server.- HTTPS encrypted access (CA certificate), configuring HTTPS encrypted access for web services by specifying the purchased CA certificate.- VPC Intranet: multiple Simple Application Server instances in the same account are in the same VPC Intranet by default.
