On March 22, Alibaba Cloud Disk announced today that it officially launched a public beta. This is the first personal cloud product officially launched by Alibaba Cloud after 12 years of self-developed intelligent storage and global accelerated cloud network technology. Alibaba Cloud said that no matter whether users pay or not, there will be no speed limit in the future. According to previous internal test users, Aliyun disk uploads and downloads are “unlimited”, and 5G download speeds are 50-100MB/sec.
In fact, free things are the most expensive in the end. When he was competing with eBay, he also said that Taobao will always be free. Later, when eBay closed down, Mr. Ma played a trick to get rid of the cicadas and created a paid Tmall. Then you stayed on Taobao and wanted to continue to prostitute. Sorry, you can’t get traffic without the through train. How many businesses are forced to spend a lot of investment every month to make through trains. Ali is not doing charity. This huge hardware cost and traffic cost must be transformed into profit in the end. Now use huge space to attract users. When you upload precious photos, videos, e-books, etc., you will become a lamb to be slaughtered. At that time, Ali has 100 ways to call you Dad. Of course, Ali’s pattern may be larger than that of Baidu, and it will come up with a charging scheme that everyone can accept. For example, 1TB costs 100 yuan a year, but keep the free option, but free users must first watch 20 seconds of ads when downloading videos. Zhang Jianfeng, President of Alibaba Cloud Intelligence, also said last year: “Alibaba Cloud is not a web disk product, but a personal cloud. Alibaba Cloud’s dream and vision is not just a web disk.” In other words, Alibaba Cloud Disk’s ambition is more than just a web disk. A few photos of you, a few gigabytes of video, they want to use this special C-side service to drive Ali’s cloud service, but the current vision is still unclear. Hopefully, Ali can be a little prosperous this time. Don’t just stare at the photos and beautiful videos on my plate.
