Cloud engine learn from and absorb the successful technical experience of the public cloud computing of the well-known foreign companies such as Google, Amazon, Rackspace, and combine aliyun years of technical research and development to ensure the efficiency and stability of the platform. Currently supports PHP and Nodejs two development languages, followed by support for more development languages. Around this platform, we also provide the session, storage, memcache, cron and many other services, so that developers can pay more attention to business development, reduce the developer's development costs, the overall architecture of the high reliability. template function to provide, can effectively link the developer and webmaster, so that the results of developers can be more effective dissemination, while the webmaster also has more flexible and rich applications can operate.

Cloud app is Aliyun mobile phone development platform, Cloud engine as an extension of Ali Cloud mobile phone in the cloud, for cloud phone developers to provide NODEJS operating environment and scalability support, so that developers effectively connect the mobile phone and cloud development, simplifying the development process.


There are two kinds of target users for Cloud engine, web developers and webmasters, respectively. Using the cloud Engine allows you to:

1, no hardware investment, reduce investment risk;

2, built-in rich services, including Session,memcache,storage,cron, cloud database, application management and configuration, covering most of the field of web development;

5, compatible with the local development environment, facilitate the developer porting code to the CE operating environment

6, distributed timing calculation, to provide scheduled and regularly scheduled tasks to trigger events.

Your application can run in one of the following two run-time environments: Nodejs environment and PHP environment. All environments provide standard protocols and common technologies for network application development. Your application uses the Nodejs and PHP standard APIs to access most CE services.

function Introduction


1, session, distributed session, developers do not have to consider across multiple machines session processing

2, Storage, based on open storage services, supporting the simultaneous access to multiple machines

3, Memcache, distributed cache, effectively solve the memcache of multiple-machine sharing, and instance restart caused by cache emptying

5, convenient data import and export

The difference between cloud engine, virtual host and VPS

Traditional service hosting is oriented to hardware software equipment, users are also the use of equipment, there is no relevant services, while cloud engine services, users get a stable and reliable comprehensive service, while the distributed platform to ensure the security of data and access to the fast.
