5. Run Your Task


4.1. Cloud Extraction (Cloud Service)

Cloud Extraction means data extraction tasks running in the cloud. You need to configure a rule and upload it to our cloud platform. Then your task will be reasonably assigned to one or multiple cloud servers to extract data simultaneously via central control commands. E.g. You have configured a rule to extract data across pages ( 99 pages in total). Your tasks will be automatically divided into three sections and evenly assigned to three cloud servers to extract data at the same time. In this way, it will only take you one third of the time to extract data from 99% websites.
