About Alibaba Cloud

Alibaba Cloud is a cloud computing and storage software that helps businesses in eCommerce, hospitality, healthcare, media, retail, and other industries manage data migration, backup, monitoring, warehousing, and more. The built-in security center automatically identifies, analyzes, and notifies users about security threats including ransomware, viruses, and DDoSs.

Alibaba Cloud monitors and tracks configuration changes and sends alerts when non-compliant configurations are detected, allowing supervisors to trigger manual or automatic correction processes. The content moderation module utilizes deep learning technology to monitor and detect data depicting illegal activities across images, videos, text, and other multimedia content. It provides a built-in elasticsearch functionality, which lets administrators implement access control, security monitoring, and automatic updates across the organization.

Alibaba Cloud comes with an API, which allows businesses to integrate the system with several third-party solutions. With the multi-factor authentication technology, organizations can provide authorized access to the platform. It also lets users apply, purchase, and manage SSL certificates from a centralized platform.

Their free trial is not free since it will be billed and one you enter your card details its quite difficult to remove the same, to use it you will be the one to do the hole setup yet they don't offer support if you happen to create a free account deleting it is not possible until they bill you for the same

Pros

Their prices are a bit lower compared to other cloud solutions services providers

Cons

I was attracted to the solution by the price but allot has to be done on features and functionalities to get it to other services standard

New cloud service platform

Reviewed on 2022/07/25

Pros

I can interact with online sellers on this site, which has benefited our business because I can email my customers and display pictures from AliExpress. It can supply additional computing servers anywhere and improve its operation and functionality to match our business requirements.

Cons

Alibaba Cloud is a growing platform for cloud services. Alibaba Cloud's commercial use cases have a steeper training time and less user assistance than cloud providers like Amazon Web Services ( AWS). There should be more service manuals available for use to referring to.
