Record Breaking Cloud Performance - Case of the Double 11
Originated from the technologies of Taobao and Tmall, Alibaba Cloud possesses great know-hows on retail industry and online users, and plays critical roles during every year's Double 11 Shopping Festival.
In the year 2018, our newly self-developed elastic computing products broke a new record for “pulse calculation”, and successfully operated more than 10 million computing cores simultaneously, which is equivalent to 10 large data centers. With the support of Alibaba Cloud, Tmall also broke the new worldwide record on number of placed orders per second -- 491K/s, 1.5 times larger than Double 11 in 2017.
