Fastly is a CDN (Content Delivery Network). When your users click on your site requesting a piece of information, we route their requests to the closest point of presence for lightning-fast delivery and improved performance.
We’re a different kind of CDN.
21st Century POPs
The big, old CDNs started building last millennium and use mostly spinning disks in their networks. That’s a little like driving with your emergency brake on. We've built our network for the future with 10Gb Ethernet, multi-core CPUs, and all Solid State Drives (SSDs). In fact, we estimate that one of our POPs is an order of magnitude more efficient than a traditional POP, boosting performance incredibly and making everyone else’s version of “fast” look slow.
Design by software engineers
Our patent-pending Fastly Caching Engine was developed by Artur Bergman (read our story), and we've built a transparent, user-friendly platform for developers.
Static or dynamic content
Our CDN can cache-deliver small objects, dynamic content, live event streams, APIs, and more. So if your site is all about up-to-the-second news, user-specific data, pricing, posts, or collaborative workflow (and really, just about anything else), we can help you accelerate.
We’re engineers and we believe in open source. We serve Python.org, RubyGems, NPM and Debian (among other open source platforms) at no charge, because it’s good for everyone.
Founded in 2011 Fastly delivers the world's only real-time content delivery network. At Fastly we think slow is unacceptable. Fastly enables a next-generation of businesses to give their users the best online and mobile experience. The patent-pending Fastly Caching Software delivers static, dynamic and streaming content with the lowest recorded time to first byte. Our customers include (but certainly aren't limited to) Twitter, Guardian UK, GitHub, AddThis, Wikia, Shazam, Wanelo, and Yammer.

We offer some great benefits like a Tahoe ski cabin, stocked fridge, flexible schedules, lots of company happy hours, and a no-vacation policy. We are close to MUNI and BART, and Caltrain is just a pleasant 15-minute stroll.
