Step1 – Set Up a Global Cloud Networking

Choose the desirable solution according to your challenges.

Challenges and Solutions

Building a reliable global cloud network is the key to the ISV business. Alibaba Cloud can help with four steps. First, create network resources including Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) and vSwitch. Second, configure network security policies based on the routing plans and subnet access control list (ACL). Third, create resources such as Elastic Compute Service (ECS) and Server Load Balancer (SLB), and deploy the applications on the cloud. Last, configure policies, such as resource whitelists, to enhance security.

See Building an Auto Scaling System on Alibaba Cloud for a step-by-step guide.

Solution Highlights

  • Quick Deployment - Set up your global cloud networking in less than 20 minutes with four simple steps
    High Elasticity - Adjust your network resources dynamically according to your different stages
    Cost Efficiency - Only pay for public network resources without investing in internal network resources

Challenges and Solutions

Fast-growing applications bring ISVs new challenges on the cross-region network quality, deployment, and cost. This solution speeds up your global network and applications. You can fill in the information of your business to receive the suggested acceleration plans according to your business needs. This way, you can purchase instances and bandwidth packages according to the plans. Then, add the client access zone for acceleration, add ports and protocols for monitoring, and configure services for the target backend and CNAME for DNS. Lastly, test the acceleration result.

Solution Highlights

  • Simple Deployment - Deploy Global Accelerator with a few clicks in minutes
    Global Acceleration - Deploy acceleration nodes worldwide regardless of domain name location
    Guaranteed Security - Seamlessly integrate with CDN and Anti-DDoS for a secure cloud network

Challenges and Solutions

Traditional global networks cannot be expanded flexibly according to business changes, and low-quality networks slows down application access and affects the business experience. This solution uses the Cloud Enterprise Network (CEN) and Smart Access Gateway (SAG) to connect your businesses on and off the cloud. Choose the SAG devices and bandwidth, install SAG, and deploy the network locally. Then, activate SAG on the cloud and finish the configuration. Next, create and load the CEN instances, configure settings (such as cross-region bandwidth), and test the inter-connections of the network. Lastly, you can choose to configure the monitoring settings.

Step 3 – Deploy on the Cloud

Challenges and Solutions

ISVs want to spend less time and resources providing web services to more customers. This requires sharing public resources with high elasticity. This solution helps you build an ECS server with cPanel and Plesk, deploy multiple websites on the same server, and store files on OSS. All data are distributed to different websites through EIP, Plesk, and cPanel. When traffic increases significantly, you can build a new pay-as-you-go ECS server with cPanel and Plesk to migrate some websites to the new server and modify DNS to the new EIP. When traffic decreases, you can migrate the websites back to the original ECS server and release the newly built server to save costs.

Solution Highlights

  • Easy Website Registration and Design - Register a domain and start your website with exclusive website design providers
    High Elasticity - Combine your business with elastic computing, storage, networking as needed
