QA section

  • 1. Q: If Singles day is running on Alibaba Cloud - does it affect other customers/users who are using your cloud services during the event?

    A: Hello! Great question - and the answer is "no". Alibaba has significant scale with regards to our cloud resources across our 9 Regions and 39 Availability Zones in Mainland China. Also - with scheduled major events such as Singles Day - Alibaba engineers take the additional precaution of reviewing required capacity with a healthy margin of error. So neither customers of Singles Day, nor customers of Alibaba Cloud, will suffer any poor performance.

  • 2. Q: How do I purchase/pay for Alibaba Cloud Services?

    A: Hello! You can pay for Alibaba Cloud in a number of different ways - Credit Card, Paypal, or Bank Transfer (Enterprise Customers only). Details of Billing Management/Options can be found here - https://www.alibabacloud.com/help/product/88767.htm

  • 3. Q: If I use Alibaba Cloud in China - do I still need an ICP Filing to launch my .cn website?

    A: Great question! If you .cn website is being hosted in Mainland China - either on a server(s) in China or via CDN in China - then you need an ICP Filing as a minimum. Alibaba Cloud allows you to apply for ICP Filing through our console, and has several resources to explain the requirements and steps for ICP - https://www.alibabacloud.com/icp

  • 4. Q: Hi Christopher Potts, How can I publish my company's solution on the AlibabaCloud Marketplace what are the requirements for that?

    A: Hello! I'm afraid our speakers can't review the Q&A during the live stream - but we are online to help :) As a starting point - you should register to be a technology partner - the link is found in the upper right of our marketplace site https://marketplace.alibabacloud.com/. This will provide guidance on requirements and allow you to register/request support for steps to become a marketplace seller

  • 5. Q: As compared to other with other Cloud Service Providers like Microsoft, AWS, etc, Alibaba has a Direct Connect from Alibaba Mainland China Datacenter to other countries. Will there be any compliance issues with the existing China Cybersecurity Law? Most Cloud Service Providers in China have datacenters that are isolated within Mainland China, meaning to say they are not allowed to have a link from their Datacenter in Mainland China to outside of Mainland China. Just curious to understand.

    A: Hello! Great question - the service you are talking about is Cloud Enterprise Network and provides connectivity between our various Cloud regions - including Mainland China. Alibaba provides a fast and highly stable network connection fully compliant under various regulatory requirements - but this does not remove the customer's obligations to adhere to government regulatory requirements such as CSL and ICP. Our China Gateway landing page has additional information on both of these subjects - https://www.alibabacloud.com/china-gateway

  • 6. Q: i used to buy webhosting and domain, so i can go to controlpanel to upload data , but in alibaba there are so many product, which one i must choise if i just buy domain and hosting for my client?

    A: Hello! These links take you to our Domain Name Service - https://www.alibabacloud.com/help/product/34269.htm and this link takes you to our "Web Hosting Package" https://www.alibabacloud.com/help/product/29830.htm.

  • 7. Q: How would you help the user to define and determine the vCPU, Memory, Storage, Bandwidth, Redundancy and Security requirement with the right sizing and expansion plan?

    A: Hello! Great question - and a difficult one to answer without some additional background. Details of our various services (such as our Elastic Compute Service) are available on our website which includes some of the details you highlight. We also support an online calculator that allows you to quickly build and view various ECS configurations - https://www.alibabacloud.com/pricing-calculator Our resource center also has a number of documents/references for building cloud solutions - https://www.alibabacloud.com/resources. Finally - if you register your interest (or raise a ticket in your console) then you can raise a request to have someone from Alibaba to contact you directly to discuss your specific questions
