JD.com Has the Potential to Unseat Alibaba as 'The Amazon of China ...
JD.com, a major Chinese e-commerce company, is looking to become the technology platform of choice for U.S. customers in a cloud computing market dominated by Alibaba. The company is now trying to build on the delivery and retail network with a new line of business in technology services, which covers logistics, advertising, and cloud computing.

China is the world’s second-largest market for cloud infrastructure services, of which Alibaba Cloud accounts for 46.4% of total spend, followed by Tencent Cloud at 18%, and Baidu AI Cloud at 8.8%. The company aims to work with Fortune 500 companies that want to grow their operations in China, as well as help US and European technology companies’ products enter China.
