"Easy to implement for someone who is not a technician. "

What do you like best?

The main objective was to have an IaaS solution that could be supported by a small number of people and that coincides with our business logic for internal units. In the end, it was implemented as a private cloud we managed to avoid additional costs for the tools of orchestration and automation.

What do you dislike?

Sensitive environment, so if you make a mistake during the initial configuration, be prepared to start from the beginning. Admas to multiple recovery of virtual machines in the cloud is limited to around 8-10 virtual machines at a time. I know there have been significant improvements in these features in the latest version.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is really difficult to eliminate zones, clusters, data centers. It must follow strict rules, which were not documented properly, a couple of years ago.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It helped us save costs, it also allows us to work from anywhere, at any time and make changes on the fly if necessary. Our designated support is also very responsive and helps our company to be more productive.

"Secure Isolation. "

What do you like best?

What we like the most is the virtual private cloud software suite Alibaba creates protected network nodes and servers compatible with Alibaba Cloud. Layer 2 logical isolation is achieved between completely different VPC instances to improve security. Isolation is vital so that the independence of our business server depends on the infrastructure that is divided and shared among multiple users.

What do you dislike?

When I created the cluster and the application, I experienced a certain slowness. I tried 3 or 4 clusters and at all times Alibaba Cloud was very slow, I'm not sure if this is cluster and container specific. Orchestrations or other services may experience the same slow operations.

Recommendations to others considering the product

When working with Alibaba Cloud, you will notice that you will be guided to configure the best networking and security practices. You should create a VPC and a network, configure, activate the Resource Management ..etc

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

By using isolation as a way to demarcate the functions that our group can access, we were able to eliminate even accidental crossovers from customers in their technical development team, or vice versa.

"Alibaba Virtual Private Cloud review. "

What do you like best?

As a vulnerability management solution for the entire company, Alibaba Virtual Private Cloud has given us a very clear vision of our security position both internally and externally. Like most global companies, our landscape is very diverse and the ease with which Alibaba Virtual Private Cloud adopted that scenario has made this a valuable tool. From Windows to UNIX devices to NAS devices, we have been able to show everything.

What do you dislike?

The way that devices are catalogued can be tough in a DHCP environment.

"makes private cloud easy and profitable. "

What do you like best?

is being used by the IT department we have two groups of four nodes each; one for our virtual server infrastructure and another for our virtual desktop infrastructure. Both clusters are running an ESXi / vSphere environment. The simplicity of the Alibaba Virtual Private Cloud web scaling technology was the biggest attraction. We no longer have to manage silos separated from servers, fabrics and storage. Instead, everything is managed from an interface that is based on simplicity.

What do you dislike?

HTTP proxy has a few bugs. If you are using a private address space for your CVM's, and you want to add the cluster to a Prism Central instance, then you'll need to remove your proxy settings, add it to the Prism Central instance, then re-add your proxy settings.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Alibaba Virtual Private Cloud is ideal for medium and large companies, where the flexibility and depth of a traditional SAN and high performance servers is required.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

My team sells web hosting services to other departments within the company, allowing them to receive support and hosting 24 hours a day, 7 days a week without having to pay IT staff from their own budgets, ensuring that the team of support is a member of the same company. has a great interest in providing time and service that an external provider may not have.

"It's a fully hosted and secured private cloud services. "

What do you like best?

VPC have been emerging in the market due to its vast benefits and resources. It enables to build a complete isolated and full encrypted private cloud to form an isolated working environment which could not have been possible without this cloud service. We could customize our IP's based on the needs and circumstances of the working strategies.

What do you dislike?

Most of the VPC are linked to Asia Pacific Region which often hinders the continuity of work and disappoints in several ways. It's payment gateways are also not much reliable as of the Amazon.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It is the most easy to configure tool which could be easily configured to our necessities and as per the range. It is a fully isolated network , so one could easily focus on their working rather than just worrying about their security and network breach.

"Ease of administration, scalability, security, quality control."

What do you like best?

Great platform for IaaS infrastructure deployment. I like the way I'm not limited by the costs of blocking and licensing the provider. The overall experience has been very positive, starting with planning, decision making, implementation and, finally, user support. The general procedure was quite simple. They also have high quality hardware and fast and reliable network providers.

What do you dislike?

Great flexibility but complexity requires clear client training. Quite difficult to set up and some things are still not fully stable.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you are good with virtualization technology, this will seem very intuitive.

"good security isolation. "

What do you like best?

What we like the most is that VPC Alibaba, automatically creates VRouter with the route table. VRouter works as a hub to connect our VPC zones and also works as a gateway to connect our VPC with other networks.

What do you dislike?

Limitation of the volume size. Other players allow you to create volumes of up to 64 TB, while AVPC only allows volumes of 2 TB.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Data paths and configuration paths are different and have redundant disaster recovery that improves the high availability of VPCs in Alibaba Cloud.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Alibaba Virtual Cloud provides us with a very good security isolation, since the servers in the cloud of different users belong to different Virtual Private Cloud and different VPCs with unique tunnel IDs.

What do you like best?

The signup process has the best navigation flow with inline verification steps compared to other VPC providers. The dashboard is modern user interface no seen with other services that allow for quick access to key areas such as products, panel, billing, domain, administration and so forth. We a proper technical onboarding script, the setup, and install of the VPC can be performed in a quick, simple and smooth manner.

What do you dislike?

Unlike Linode, the VPC does not allow full control and access to the server software to administer IP firewall, fine-tuning of the web server, and so forth.

Recommendations to others considering the product

First and foremost, you must understand the business and technical requirements of the software you will be hosting in the cloud. This includes the level of fine-tuning that will need to be performed, level of software/application/system control, security for network and host, scalability at all levels (throughput, app, web, and database). Then, compare your complete requirements to the VPC service and capabilities provided by Alibaba VPC services.
