If you were talking to someone whose organization is considering Alibaba Cloud, what would you say?
How would you rate it and why? Any other tips or advice?
Relative to Albibaba'ss competitors, they're not as good. I would advise anyone interested to look at the stability of the solution and the documentation and make sure you are familiar with it. Having somebody who has worked on Alibaba Cloud onboard is always useful just to have some knowledge because certain things are not quite obvious. If you haven't worked on them before, then a very simple thing can cost you a lot of time and money. If you have someone who's worked at those solutions before, you'll be able to deal with it quickly. If you have an insight, a customer service person you're familiar with, then you have a good person to support you. That would be really good because that person can make your company's life a lot easier in terms of solving problems when you run into something. On a scale from one to ten, I would give Alibaba Cloud a six.
Feature-wise, it has multiple features, but stability-wise, it is not very stable at present. If you are in the development phase and have some time, you can use Alibaba. If you face any issues, you can report to Alibaba. They will take data and work on it. It is a little cheaper than other providers. I would rate Alibaba Cloud a seven out of ten. I am a little disappointed with this solution.
We're just a customer. We don't have a relationship or affiliation with Alibaba. I wouldn't recommend Alibaba. I think other companies should just use Azure instead, as it's a much simpler solution. I'd rate it six out of ten.
