Cloud computing refers to accessing IT resources wherever needed—including providing computing power, database storage, software applications, etc. You only need to pay for cloud services you use, and there’s no need to set up or maintain additional hardware, helping you lower your operating costs, run your infrastructure more efficiently, and scale as your business needs change.
What is Public Cloud?
Public cloud enables organizations to share on-demand computing services & infrastructure managed by cloud providers via the public Internet. Cloud providers use groups of data centers and divide them into virtual machines for use by tenants. The computing resources that public clouds provide are available to anyone who wants to purchase. In general, public clouds are shared by multiple users.
What is Private Cloud?
Private cloud infrastructure is owned by a single user organization, and a single organization is responsible for hosting and managing the system, and the underlying hardware is isolated from any other customer's infrastructure. Private cloud provides higher security. It is mainly developed and used within the enterprise and operated by the internal IT team, so it is also regarded as a kind of "enterprise cloud".
What is Hybrid Cloud?
Hybrid cloud includes both public and private cloud services, connecting the server space behind the internal firewall of the enterprise (private cloud), and the virtual server space provided by third-party providers (public cloud) through the Internet, sharing data and applications between different cloud environments with convenience and security.
What are the differences between each cloud?
Private cloud has better security and transmission efficiency than public cloud, but it is similar to the traditional on-premise data center as the enterprise needs an IT team for maintenance and operation, and also the operating cost is higher. Hybrid cloud is the combination of deploying environments both on-premises and on cloud. Enterprises can use private clouds to process classified materials and public clouds to process other information, enjoying the benefits of both public and private clouds. It has both high elasticity and computing advantages with security and low latency at the same time.
Why do enterprises switch to the cloud?
Before the popularization of the cloud concept, enterprises used to purchase and maintain their own IT infrastructure such as computer facilities, servers, and firewalls. Additionally, enterprises have to manage complex back-end systems on their own, resulting in high operating costs. After the enterprises switch to clouds, the overall IT resources turn out to be more flexible and extensible with the benefit of backing up more easily while ensuring the process to be uninterrupted. Furthemore, they are provided with an elastic billing method of pay-as-you-go, helping enterprises to create exclusive services in the most economical and secure way.
What are the benefits of cloud computing?
Cloud computing has advantages such as low cost, high scalability, high security, high computing flexibility, unlimited storage space, backup function and is very convenient. It can elastically create a cloud environment according to the needs of users, so that data can be stored in a highly secure space and can be accessed anywhere, anytime.
In addition, it can be expanded or reduced flexibly according to demand, becoming a firm IT basis enabling enterprises to focus on business development.

What is IaaS?
IaaS (Infrastructure as a Service) users need to manage and configure most of the infrastructure, governing from operating systems to establishing computing resources specification of virtual machines, as long as the required conditions are set, users are able to obtain resources.
- Examples: VM and Storage are IaaS.
What is PaaS?
The user management and operation parts of PaaS (Platform as a Service) are less than IaaS, as it has saved the troubles of managing Server or VM, thus users are able to put most of the effort on the optimization and refinement of the program and data, providing an execution or development environment for users to extend utilization.
- Examples: MySQL Database, Nginx Service, and Container Instances are PaaS.
What is SaaS?
SaaS (Software as a Service) users only need to enjoy the well-rounded services that have already been prepared by the cloud service providers, meaning all the system problems will be handled by the providers and their services usually roll out in the forms of monthly rent, subscription or registration.
- Examples: O365, Gmail are SaaS.
What’s the difference between IaaS/PaaS/SaaS?
Each cloud service has its advantage, therefore enterprises are able to pick the most suitable service depending on their business needs. IaaS is also widely known as "public cloud" while PaaS provides higher completion as it focuses more on developer IT’s needs. As for SaaS, it is a model of Internet leasing software, and is the majority in the field of cloud computing.
The most resilient cloud service.

What is CDN?
CDN (Content delivery network) is a content cache mechanism on the network that has a distributed nodes network (also known as edge location server). CDN PoPs are deployed by suppliers in multiple locations throughout the world, spanning multiple ISP networks. Through the global CDN PoPs, the delay of content transmission can be reduced to ensure that the reading speed is in line with the networks of other places around the world.
Why do enterprises use CDN?
CDN allows end users to obtain nearby website content, which can increase the response speed of the website, improving the browsing experience of your website users. Additionally, you are able to order on demand, deploy efficiently and upgrade simply, saving the trouble of purchasing computer facilities and maintenance for your client.
What’s the advantage of CDN?
In addition to being stored on the original server, the content of the website will also be temporarily stored on CDN servers in various places. Therefore, when users in different regions send requests to the website, the users can obtain the service nearby, improving the delivery speed.
File Download Acceleration
File download acceleration helps enterprises to deliver large files to users throughout the world fast and securely. Enterprises are able to reduce the cost of building IT infrastructure through the platform provided by the supplier.
Media Streaming Service
Media streaming service provides fast, stable, high-quality, and secure digital content transmission services, enabling fast and smooth playback regardless of the quality of the video.
How does CDN protect information?
Anti-DDoS services help you defend the website against DDoS attacks. By hiding the IP address of your website, inquiries of end-users can be processed locally and absorbed directly, which effectively reduces the possibility of your website being attacked and ensures the security and stability, provideing solutions to the security problems.
What’s the schedule of rate for CDN?
The price of CDN services are calculated project by project, please contact our sales team or customer support team for further information, we will have our dedicated personnel help you immediately.
How to reduce the cost of bandwidth?
The original server usually uses the bandwidth when responding to the request command. However when using CDN, the request does not need to be sent back to the original server and can be sent through the nearest node, effectively reduces the bandwidth usage and cost.
What is DevOps?
DevOps is a combination of cultural philosophies, actual practices, and tools that enhance an organization's ability to deliver applications and services rapidly. Compared to organizations using traditional ways to develop software and infrastructure management programs, DevOps enables enterprises to develop and improve products more efficiently, allowing organizations to provide better service to customers and becoming more competitive on the market.
What are the adventages of DevOps?
Act at speed to innovate faster for clients, adapt better to changing markets, and grow more efficiently while driving business results.
Increase the frequency and speed of releases, allowing you to innovate and improve products faster.
Ensure the quality of application updates and infrastructure changes, allowing you to deliver faster and more reliably while maintaining a positive end-user experience.
Operate and manage your infrastructure and development programs at scale. Help you manage complex, changing systems efficiently with automation and consistency.
Build a more efficient team under a DevOps culture model that emphasizes values such as ownership and responsibility. Developers and operations teams can collaborate closely, share responsibilities and combine their workflows. This not only reduces inefficiencies but also saves lots of time during the process. (for example, reducing handover periods between developers and operation teams, writing codes that have been taking consideration of the code execution environment.)
Move fast while retaining control and maintaining compliance. By means of using compliant automation policies, fine-tuned controls, and configuration management techniques, DevOps models can be adopted without sacrificing security.
What’s the importance of DevOps?
Software and the Internet have transformed the entire world and the industries within it, from shopping and entertainment to banking. It is no longer just a support and is becoming an integral component of the business. Companies interact with customers on various devices through software delivered as online services or apps. These companies use software to improve operational efficiency by transforming the value chain (such as logistics, communications, and operations). This approach is similar to how 20th-century companies that sell goods have changed the ways of design, manufacture, and delivery of products by industrial automation. Today, companies are required to transform the way they build and deliver software.
