The cloud host ECS has a wide range of application scenarios. It can be used as a web server or application server alone, or can be integrated with other e Cloud services to provide a wealth of solutions.
Note: Classic application scenarios of cloud hosting ECS include but are not limited to the descriptions in this article. You can discover the technical dividends brought by cloud computing while using cloud hosting ECS.
Official enterprise website or lightweight web application
During the initial stage of the website, the number of visits is small, and only a low-configuration cloud host ECS instance is needed to run web applications such as Apache or Nginx, databases, storage files, etc. With the development of the website, you can upgrade the configuration of ECS instances at any time, or increase the number of ECS instances, without worrying about the lack of resources caused by low-configuration computing units when the business suddenly increases.
Multimedia and high-concurrency applications or websites
The cloud host ECS is paired with the object storage OSS. The object storage OSS carries static pictures, videos or download packages, thereby reducing storage costs. At the same time, with the content distribution network CDN and load balancing SLB, waiting time for user access, network bandwidth costs can be greatly reduced and availability greatly improved.
Supports databases with high I/O requirements, such as OLTP type databases and NoSQL type databases. You can use a higher-configured I/O-optimized cloud host ECS and an ESSD cloud disk to achieve high I/O concurrent response and higher data reliability. You can also use multiple I/O-optimized ECS instances with low-moderate configuration and load balancing SLB to build a high-availability underlying architecture.
Apps or websites with highly fluctuating traffic
Certain applications, such as e-commerce websites, ticketing websites, etc., may have huge fluctuations in traffic within a short period of time. You can use elastic scaling to automatically increase the number of ECS instances before the peak of requests arrives and reduce the number of ECS instances when the low point of requests arrives. It satisfies the resource requirements when the number of visits reaches its peak, while reducing costs. With load balancing SLB, you can also implement a highly available application architecture.
The cloud host ECS provides a big data type instance specification collection, and supports distributed computing such as Hadoop, log processing, and large data warehouses. Because the big data type instance specifications adopt a local storage architecture, the cloud host ECS can provide higher network performance for cloud Hadoop clusters and Spark clusters under the premise of ensuring massive storage space and high storage performance.
