Datapipe named an Alibaba Cloud Global Managed Service Provider

Organizations can now work with Datapipe to grow their business inside and outside of China on Alibaba Cloud thanks to a new partnership between our two companies. We’re excited to announce we have been named a global managed service provider partner of Alibaba Cloud and we look forward to working with global organizations entering China and Chinese organizations venturing abroad to design, build, and manage Alibaba Cloud environments.

Organizations looking to utilize Alibaba Cloud can now leverage our expertise to plan, build, and run their cloud environments to ensure fast, secure, and compliant global expansion strategies. Our team is already working with our first Alibaba Cloud client, China-based Joyful Journey Travel, to develop a solution with high-performing Alibaba Cloud services including Elastic Compute Service instances, AsparaDB for Relationship Database Systems and Alibaba’s Cloud-based CDN. To give you a broader scope of our capabilities with Alibaba Cloud, we are also able to provide migration, management, and security of Alibaba Cloud solutions for computing, storage, database, CDN, and big data.

As a pioneer in managed services for public cloud, the addition of Alibaba Cloud to our list of supported platforms and service capabilities was a natural step. We look forward to working closely with Alibaba Cloud to help drive the global adoption of best-practice enterprise cloud solutions.
