Running business-critical applications on Alibaba cloud has many benefits for many businesses.

One of the main benefits is the ability to scale resources on demand.

Auto Scaling is a service to automatically adjusts computing resources based on your volume of user requests. When the demand for computing resources increase, Auto Scaling automatically adds ECS instances to serve additional user requests or removes instances in the case of decreased user requests.

Alibaba Cloud allows users to easily increase or decrease the amount of computing power, storage, and memory they need, without the need for expensive hardware upgrades. This means that businesses can save money by only paying for the resources they use.

Another benefit is the ability to access applications and data from anywhere with an internet connection. This allows for greater flexibility and collaboration, as employees can work remotely or from different locations.

Alibaba Cloud also offers robust security features to protect data and applications. This includes regular backups and disaster recovery options, as well as advanced security features such as encryption and identity management.

In addition, Alibaba cloud often offers a wide range of services and tools that can be integrated with applications, such as analytics, machine learning, and artificial intelligence. This allows businesses to easily add new functionality to their applications and stay up-to-date with the latest technology.

Finally, running applications on the Alibaba cloud can also be more cost-effective than traditional on-premises solutions. Alibaba Cloud typically offers pay-as-you-go pricing models, which can be more affordable for businesses that do not need to invest in expensive hardware.

Overall, running applications on the Alibaba cloud can provide businesses with increased scalability, flexibility, security, and cost savings. It also allows for easy integration with new technologies and services and enables employees to work from anywhere.
