Alibaba Investing Billions Into Improving Its Cloud Service

20 April 2020 

Alibaba Cloud has recently made an announcement sharing its plans of making an additional investment of $28 billion for infrastructure over the next 3 years.

The company’s cloud service is currently the most popular service in the Asia-Pacific market. However, Alibaba Cloud is looking to use its latest investment to increase its reach and improve its technology.

The Cloud service is available in the United States, Europe, The Middle East, Asia and Australia with 63 availability zones between the listed areas. 

With the gargantuan investment that’s yet to be made Alibaba could enter another continent or increase its availability zones in the continents where it’s currently available.

During the announcement, the President of Alibaba Cloud Intelligence and Chief Technology Officer of the Alibaba Group, Jeff Zhang, shared the purpose of the company’s investment and what he hopes Alibaba Cloud service can offer its customers.

Zhang shared, “By increasing our investment on cloud infrastructure and fundamental technologies, we hope to continue providing world-class, trusted computing resources to help businesses speed up the recovery process, and offer cloud-based intelligent solutions to support their digital transformation in the post-pandemic world.”
