At the Alibaba Cloud APAC Summit in Singapore this week, Alibaba Cloud, the data intelligence backbone of Alibaba Group, showcased its commitment to driving digital transformation in the region, and enabling enterprises to win in the digital age, with its proven, highly integrated, best-in-class technology ecosystem.
At the Summit, Alibaba Cloud showcased its new product suite for enterprises in the region enabling their pursuit of “All in Cloud” strategies. The product portfolio comprises more than 10 new products and features that are available for the first time outside of China and can now be accessed by customers in India and elsewhere.
Alibaba Cloud’s new product and feature highlights include:
PolarDB: A MySQL and PostgreSQL – compatible relational database built for the cloud that combines the performance and availability of traditional enterprise databases at a much lower cost. It offers excellent scalability, with the architecture of hardware-software co-design. The solution can also scale up to 100TB in storage which helps customers manage big data development. It can scale up to 88 vCPUs and 710GB of memory and allows customers to pay for usage by the minute, enabling customers to handle peak business traffic while minimizing cost.
Alibaba Log Service (SLS): SLS allows customers to automatically collect logs from all your services, applications and platforms, irrespective of whether they are on-premises or in the cloud. SLS allows the log data to be tagged with context derived. SLS also allows decisions to be taken on this data in near real time for trend analysis, alerts or visualization.
Support of “Bring Your Own Key”(BYOK)：An end-to-end security service which provides customers encryption controls on both hardware and software, protecting customers’ data in transit and at rest. The new BYOK feature now supports ECS Cloud Disk, OSS and RDS.
SaaS Accelerator: A platform where technology partners can easily build and launch SaaS applications and leverage proven business and technology know-how in the Alibaba Economy. The accelerator helps SaaS providers quickly deploy and test their applications on the cloud, shorten the implementation lifecycle, and accelerate time-to-market. It enables ecosystem partners, such as enterprises in the e-commerce, lodging, and travel industries, to quickly reach their customers on Alibaba platforms. It also defines three centers for the SaaS ecosystem: the commercial center, the capability center, and the technology center.
Smart Access Gateway (SAG) Software: An app that allows endpoint devices such as cell phones, POS and laptops to securely get connected with Alibaba Cloud and on-premises data centers in one click, accelerating access to enterprise applications and cloud resources.
Container Registry (ACR) Enterprise Edition: Alibaba Cloud Container Registry (ACR) is a fully-managed container registry that allows developers to easily store, manage, and deploy container images. ACR Enterprise Edition is integrated with the Alibaba Cloud Container Service, simplifying customers’ deployment to production workflows. It eliminates the need for customers to operate their own container repositories or worry about scaling the underlying infrastructure. ACR hosts customers’ container images in a highly available and scalable architecture, where customers can reliably deploy containers and launch applications at a global scale.
Container Service for Kubernetes (ACK): A fully-managed service compatible with Kubernetes to help users focus on their applications rather than managing container infrastructure. It provides enterprise-level high-performance and flexible management of Kubernetes containerized applications throughout the application lifecycle. This service simplifies cluster creation and expansion and integrates Alibaba Cloud capabilities in virtualization, storage, network, and security, providing an improved running environment for Kubernetes containerized applications.
