Business Challenges

  • Sudden Traffic Surges

    Access traffic can surge hundreds of times during promotions, flash sales, and sweepstakes. As a result, servers become overloaded and e-commerce platforms may even crash.

  • Poor User Experience

    Massive amounts of static data, which is usually stored on servers, are processed on a daily basis. Users in different network environments may experience delayed access to such data, resulting in poor user experience.

  • Lack of Proper Data Analysis

    Existing e-commerce platforms and related data analysis tools lack intelligent data analysis capabilities. As a result, it is difficult to make key business decisions based on data output.

  • Compromised Security

    E-commerce enterprises encounter risks in various processes, such as ordering, payment, and delivery. The vulnerabilities may come from library hitting and explosion, scalpers, DDoS attacks, and account leakage.

Typical Scenarios

  • Online Promotions and Flash Sales

  • Static Resource Acceleration

  • Precision Marketing Powered on Big Data Analysis

  • Comprehensive Protection

Online Promotions and Flash Sales

Introduction

Compute resources can be scaled up or down so that services meet in-the-moment requirements.

Benefits

Elastic load balancing
ELB automatically distributes incoming traffic and supports 100 million concurrent connections. ELB features redundancy, ensuring service continuity and reliability even if a node is faulty.
Dynamic expansion
ECS and RDS feature preset scaling policies to handle traffic surges during large-scale promotions and flash sales, ensuring service stability.
Static Resource Acceleration

Introduction

Five-link BGP separates dynamic and static content, delivering a latency-free user experience.

Benefits

High-quality network
The five-link BGP eliminates network latency and ensures fast access for users in different network environments. In addition, VPN and Direct Connect facilitate connections between services in the cloud and those in enterprise-owned data centers.
Enhanced user experience
Massive amounts of static data (including pictures and videos) are processed on a daily basis. The data is typically stored on servers, which is expensive and results in slow access to data. OBS functions as a resource pool to store the data, separates static and dynamic content, and interworks with CDN to improve content loading speed and deliver an enhanced user experience.
Precision Marketing Powered on Big Data Analysis

Introduction

Precision marketing is realized through big data analysis.

Benefits

Data analysis

MRS uses Hadoop, Spark, and Hbase to process user data, analyze user behavior patterns, and outputs data that is used for product display, promotion, O&M, and personalized recommendations. Data Warehouse Service (DWS) enables efficient query of massive structured data to provide comprehensive analysis of operations data for e-commerce enterprises. This is suitable for business scenarios such as query of operations reports and instant services, and prediction of operations trend. Robust data support provided by EI big data services helps enterprises alter marketing strategies to maximize return on investment.

Data storage

E-commerce enterprises require cost-effective and easily manageable storage for massive amounts of data. OBS allows enterprises to easily manage and store up to 5 TB data on a pay-per-use basis.

Related Services

Comprehensive Protection

Introduction

A fully vetted security architecture protects applications and data.

Benefits

Anti-DDoS

Professional anti-DDoS devices defend network applications against DDoS attacks, such as CC, SYN flood, and UDP flood.

VSS

VSS periodically detects vulnerabilities in cloud servers and notifies personnel to address risks in time.

WAF

WAF detects exceptions in HTTP requests and prevents web page tampering, information leaks, and malicious attacks, including SQL injection, cross-site scripting (XSS), Trojan horses, and vulnerability-based intrusions.
