The ongoing adoption of cloud computing by communications service providers (CSPs)
continues to fundamentally reshape their business models and technology strategies on
several levels. One such area that is garnering significant attention is the impact of the
cloud on security services. This is because security services and the vital tools they
encompass can be empowered through the adoption of a carrier cloud model. This, in turn,
better positions CSPs to meet the demands of their customers, including those in the small
to medium-size business (SMB) market segment.
The timing of this migration is optimal, since many SMBs now recognize the threats they
face and realize that given their limited IT budgets and lack of security expertise, CSPs are
well positioned to protect them from cyberattacks.
While the opportunity for CSPs is significant, many are hesitant to make a move in this area
because they want to ensure they can address SMBs’ needs and maintain control of the
service in a car
In a relatively short time, cloud computing, specifically Infrastructure-as a-Service, has shifted from a new but unproven approach to an accepted, even inevitable, model. Driven by flexibility and efficiency, the question facing most organizations is not whether the cloud is part of their infrastructure plans, but which applications and workloads to move to the cloud and when. But even as the benefits of cloud and hosted models have become apparent, concerns persist about security, and an assumption lingers that the cloud is inherently less secure than an enterprise data center environment.
Organizations continue to adopt cloud computing at a rapid pace to benefit from increased efficiency, better scalability, and faster deployments.
As more workloads are shifting to the cloud, cybersecurity professionals remain concerned about security of data, systems, and services in the cloud. To cope with new security challenges, security teams are forced to reassess their security posture and strategies as traditional security tools are often not suited for the challenges of dynamic, virtual and distributed cloud environments. This technology challenge is only exacerbated by the dramatic shortage of skilled cybersecurity professionals.
Customers have grown accustomed to high speeds and reliable connectivity. One second of network delay when accessing website, mobile app, or application service can increase your bounce rate and even decrease your customer’s trust in your brand.
The typical business pain points per the above scenario are always like:
Latency – While, latency problems caused by geographic distance are impossible to solve on the public Internet;
Availability – Packet loss and complaints from customers can prevent you from increasing your user base;
Cost - The growth of your user base and your business needs both outpace your IT budget.
Security - Connections over the public Internet are vulnerable to DDoS attacks and other threats.

Many businesses are adopting a multi-cloud infrastructure. However, managing data and communication between multiple cloud environments is often challenging and complex. Therefore, companies often try to find a technical partner that can help them. Companies with on-premise data centers need some type of interconnect to access their products and services hosted on the cloud. The traditional Virtual Private Network (VPN) connection method usually can’t meet enterprise speed,stability, security, and compliance requirements.This whitepaper describes the challenges that companies face when building dedicated connections between different cloud environments and how Alibaba Cloud’s Express Connect is the perfect solution for them
This whitepaper provides an overview of how Craigs International leveraged Alibaba Cloud’s technology solutions, including Cloud Enterprise Network (CEN), Virtual Private Network (VPN) Gateway, and Smart Access Gateway (SAG), to build a global enterprise network. Alibaba Cloud’s solutions helped them improve business operations, increase efficiency, maximize profitability, and reduce OPEX and CAPEX costs. Craigs International wants to move to the cloud to build a global hybrid enterprise network by partnering with a technology player that has such solid experience within Mainland China.
Until recently, it has been far cheaper and easier to produce and store data than to process it. Companies have the option to buy large, multi-million dollar hardware devices to process their big data, but with budgets under pressure and no clear way to calculate returns on investment, the business case is difficult to make… And when analysts explain to the CTO that they only need the hardware for six months, for one day a week, or for one hour a day, the investment becomes impossible to justify.
In this whitepaper, you’ll learn how by eliminating the traditionally high ‘cost of entry’ for big data analysis, Amazon Web Services is enabling customers to convert more raw data into more valuable business insight.
An easy way to get started using Amazon Web Services is by deploying development and test workloads. This solution briefing outlines some of the challenges that customers face with these workloads, and how AWS can help address them. In addition, it provides an overview of AWS, highlights some key services for these scenarios and provides links so that you can obtain more information about any service that you are interested in.

Virtualization and the cloud have effectively become mandates for IT. Though we are still somewhat early in the virtualization and cloud lifecycles, it's quite clear that these two technologies are going to become major, if not dominant models of IT.
For most organizations, consolidation is the starting point and primary initial driver for their virtualization efforts. By enabling the sharing and pooling of resources, virtualization has become a proven, adept and widely adopted technology in allowing organizations of all sizes to achieve some of their most important technology consolidation initiatives.
