Alibaba Bringing Its Cloud Services To The US

Alibaba has plans to bring its cloud services to the United States. The Chinese company recently announced its new Silicon Valley-based data center, and then said it has plans to use that center to power a new cloud service in the US.

Alibaba’s biggest competition in the cloud space is Amazon Web services, the host of choices for many companies and startups. Google and Microsoft also offer cloud options. For now, the move is just to test the US waters for their service and see what kind of demand they can raise. Alibaba currently offers cloud services in China and has plans to expand into Southeast Asia and Europe later this year.

Pricing for the service is currently unknown, however, Sergio Cortes indicated that it would be “”competitive” with other similar services. What do you think? Would you buy cloud service from Alibaba over someone like Amazon or Google? Why or why not?
