We decided to try Elastic Cloud Server (ECS) cloud hosting in case there were problems with our server. Easily configurable and scalable virtual server. And besides, on the usual Intel® Xeon® Gold machine. Throughput is also excellent at 99.95%. I recommend!


OK, thanks. Tell us more about the benefits of this service. For example, I need not only a cloud storage, but also a several additional business tools. Does Elastic Cloud allow virtual meetings?

I also use ECS for a while. The main advantage over other cloud servers is scalability. We, as an administrator, can use not allocated resources, but a block of resources, which, if necessary, can be increased by referring to the parent block. In addition, the cross-server cloud-based protection screen copes well with all 3 types of DDoS attacks. Well, as a cherry on the cake - the ability to work with three types of flavors.


Alibaba cloud service

Elastic Compute Service (ECS) Cloud Server is a basic cloud computing service provided by Alibaba Cloud hosting. Using an ECS cloud server is as convenient and efficient as using water, electricity, gas and other resources. You do not need to purchase equipment in advance, instead, you can create the required number of instances of ECS cloud servers at any time according to business needs.
During use, as your business expands, you can increase disk capacity and increase throughput at any time. If the cloud server is no longer needed, resources can be released at any time, which will save money.

Region and availability zone: Refers to the physical location of ECS resources.
Example: The equivalent of a virtual machine, including the most basic computing components such as CPU, memory, operating system, network, and disk.
Instance Specifications: Various instance configurations, including the number of virtual CPU cores, memory, and network performance. The instance specification defines the computing power and storage capacity of an ECS instance.
Image: Refers to the operating environment template of an ECS instance, usually including the operating system and pre-installed software. The operating system supports many Linux distributions and different versions of Windows.
Block storage: including cloud drives and shared block storage based on a distributed storage architecture, as well as local storage based on local hard drives of physical machines.
Snapshot: A backup copy of the elastic block data at a certain point in time.
Network type:
Own Network: Based on the isolated network environment created by Alibaba Cloud, own network is directly and logically isolated.
Classic Network: Unified deployment in Alibaba Cloud public infrastructure, and Alibaba Cloud is responsible for planning and management.
Security Group: Consists of instances with the same security requirements and mutual trust in the same region. This is a virtual firewall used to configure network access control for different instances.
