Alibaba now evaluated in public cloud comparison

First established in 2009, Alibaba Cloud is one of the longest running public cloud providers and has come to dominate the market in China. While lagging against the global market leaders, their expansion last year into US and European datacenter locations shows their broader ambitions to secure a larger presence in the global public cloud market. It should also be highlighted that, like AWS, Alibaba has had the opportunity to hone their cloud offering based on their experience of running their own massive e-commerce businesses.

In terms of addressing the market, Alibaba have differentiated themselves by their approach. They adopted a targeted focus on SME’s and offer prepackaged solution bundles to address those clients’ requirements. While cloud currently accounts for only about 5% of their total revenues, the approach is working. In June of this year Alibaba’s cloud organization posted revenue growth of 96% year-on-year.  Recently there have been signs that as Alibaba grows they are expanding their focus to larger-scale businesses.
