The increased focus on Asia Pacific comes through the launch of no fewer than nine products around cloud architecture, machine learning, the Internet of Things (IoT), and security. These include PAI, Alibaba Cloud’s proprietary machine learning platform, IoT Platform, which will be introduced to the global market, as well as Data Lake Analytics, a serverless offering which aims to turn customers’ data lakes into insights. Other products being introduced into this market include a hybrid backup recovery tool, a dedicated host service, and anti-bot software. The nine products also include partner offerings. Alibaba’s partnership with China Unicom has resulted in an enterprise network solution, while HPE is on board to help organisations with hybrid cloud and analytics search engine Elasticsearch is available through Alibaba Cloud and Elastic.
