Alibaba Cloud to Launch Big Data Service "MaxCompute" in Europe

Making innovations a real possibility within the fields of AI, deep learning and data analytics

(PresseBox) ( Paris, )
Alibaba Cloud, the cloud computing arm of Alibaba Group, announced today at Paris VivaTech that it plans to launch its big data service “MaxCompute” in Europe in the second half of 2017. This move brings sophisticated data intelligence services ranging from data processing and analytics to machine learning to European businesses, in order to meet the growing digitalization demand from a range of industries and sectors.

Developed by Alibaba Cloud, MaxCompute is a big data platform that allows users to store and process massive amounts of structural and unstructural data such as image, video and audio to levels as high as TB (terabyte) or even PB (petabyte). A single MaxCompute cluster could scale up to 10,000 servers. The platform is essential as the data warehouse and modeling component within Alibaba Cloud’s award-winning data intelligence offering. Alibaba Cloud achieved industry recognition for the service when it became the world champion in the CloudSort category of the 2016 Sort Benchmark competition, setting a new world record of the lowest computing cost at $1.44 per TB.

“Europe has always been an industrial and societal pioneer, and today it continues to nurture creativity and innovation for this digitalizing planet. As one of the world’s leading cloud providers, Alibaba Cloud will assist European enterprises to unlock the immense value of their data using a highly secure and scalable cloud infrastructure and AI programs,” said Wanli Min, AI and data mining scientist of Alibaba Cloud.

By providing a strong and flexible big data offering, Alibaba Cloud will make breakthrough innovation in Europe a real possibility within the fields of artificial intelligence (AI), deep learning and data analytics. The company’s cloud-enabled AI program - “ET Brain” - has been widely applied in China to help tackle real-world challenges, such as easing traffic congestion with real-time traffic prediction and recommendations for traffic light management.

Since the establishment of its European business, Alibaba Cloud has been committed to building a technology ecosystem in conjunction with its local partners to drive cloud and big data business within the region.

Alibaba Cloud opened its first data center in Europe in November 2016 – with Vodafone Germany – answering regional demand for sophisticated cloud computing services and digital infrastructure. Alibaba Cloud is also a founding member of the General Assembly of the EU Code of Conduct for Cloud Service Providers, and works together with other international companies to contribute to the healthy development of the technology industry.
