The second addition is being committed to complement Availability Zone A which was launched last year to heighten cloud security and ensure business continuity via Alibaba Cloud’s resilient cloud infrastructure.
Chinese based Alibaba Group continues to investment into the country and will see the setting up a first cloud based AntiDDoS Scrubbing Center in August. The center will help mitigate risks and offer customers high level of protection against stronger DDoS attacks. It is also confirmed that the new center will feature a variety of security functions including Anti-DDoS Pro, a service that defends against all types of DDoS attacks.
“I welcome Alibaba Cloud’s effort to further support and enhance Malaysia’s digital economy. The world moves ever closer towards e-commerce and we see a considerable surge in demand by local industries to participate in this new economy on a global platform” said Gobind Singh Deo, Malaysia’s Minister of Communications and Multimedia. In addition to ensuring high availability and resiliency, Availability Zone B offers payment hardware security modules (HSM), elastic computing, database, networking and monitoring services. It is also certified for SAP hosting, the German-based global market leader in enterprise application software.
These new developments come on the back of a number of initiatives by Alibaba Cloud. Earlier this year, the company announced the collaboration with Malaysia Digital Economy Corporation (MDEC) in the Malaysia City Brain Initiative to create a smart city powered by AI and big data.
