The beginning of this year has been quite a whirlwind, but our teams are working hard to bring new products and capabilities to our customers. We began 2020 by launching Origin Connect and Cloud Optimizer as we continually strive to improve performance and reliability. We also enabled Force SSO with SAML, adding another layer of security to our platform, and Image Optimizer, a feature built to Auto Optimize and reduce individual image analysis. On the logging front, we moved Elasticsearch to General Availability and several other endpoints to Limited Availability. We also continue to improve our Varnish stack. For more information on recent releases, continue reading below.
In Q4 2019, we ended the year with a bang by launching Fastly TLS and Concierge TLS into General Availability (GA). We also announced Compute@Edge, the next step in Fastly’s edge computing capabilities and performed a demo at our customer summit, Altitude NYC. In addition to our exciting new launches, we continually extend our network, enhance our Fastly control panel, and add to our Varnish stack. For more information on recent releases, continue reading below.
In Q3 2019, we moved Media Shield and Segmented Caching to GA, improved the UI of the “Add a domain” feature within the Fastly app control panel, restructured the navigation of Fastly’s documentation site based on customer feedback and usability testing, added support for the latest version of Terraform, and added Elasticsearch as an endpoint to our Real-Time Log Streaming feature. Continue reading for details on this quarters’ releases.
In Q2, we added support for several new logging endpoints, enhanced the user experience in our control panel, improved our Terraform provider support, and now provide more flexibility over how content is delivered over our network to help customers better control their delivery costs. We also brought our total global number of Fastly POPs to 64, along with 52 Tbps of connected network capacity (as of 6/30/19).
In Q1 2019, we focused on increasing the scalability of our edge cloud platform, with the release of several new features in general availability (GA) and limited availability (LA). We also brought online several new POPs, bringing the global number of Fastly POPs to 60 and increasing our total connected edge capacity to 45 Tbps.
In Q4, we released several new features in general availability (GA) and limited availability (LA). We also brought online three new POPs, bringing our total global number of Fastly POPs to 57 and bringing our total connected edge capacity to 37.5 Tbps.
In Q3, we added an assortment of new features and increased the size of our network. We introduced functionality to further enhance security at scale, decrease time to first byte for large and encrypted files, add basic effects to images, and more. We also brought our total global number of Fastly POPs to 54, along with 26 Tbps of connected network capacity. Read on to learn what we’ve been up to last quarter.
In Q2, we added several new offerings and expanded our network. We introduced Fastly Quick Value packages, rolled out a new dashboard for WAF, added image montage functionality to our Image Optimizer, and made several user management enhancements. We also brought our total global number of Fastly POPs to 51 along with 22 Tbps of connected network capacity. Read on to learn what we’ve been up to last quarter.
In Q1, we released a number of new features and made considerable expansions to our global network. We introduced two new user interfaces, added confirmations to service rollbacks, implemented new customer support initiatives, and more, all while adding new POPs in Canada, Chile, and India. Read on to learn what we’ve been up to last quarter.
In Q4, we added several new features and expanded our network before taking a much-needed break for the holidays. New features include enhancements to video capabilities (HEVC), security (WAF update), and user management, and more, plus new POPs in South Africa, Japan, and North America. Read on to learn what we’ve been up to last quarter.
In Q3, we were excited to launch some new products and features — including our Media Shield, which is already saving customers up to 75% on infrastructure costs — to help you make the most of our edge cloud platform. Read on to learn what we’ve been up to last quarter.
In Q2 2017, we reached 13 Tbps of global capacity, added POPs in Newark, Chicago, and Johannesburg, and launched three new services on the Fastly edge cloud platform: the Fastly Image Optimizer, Load Balancer, and Web Application Firewall (WAF).
In Q1 2017, we reached 10 Tbps of global capacity, added POPs in Madrid and Montreal, and released several new features, including IPv6 support, geolocation updates, and enhancements to our logging endpoints.
This quarter, we launched our Managed CDN offering, added new POPs, and increased our network bandwidth capacity by 40%.
This quarter, we doubled our cache server capacity at several key POPs around the United States, and updated several features, including logging endpoints, video, and updates to our routing platform.
Over the past three months, we’ve increased network capacity by 40% through a variety of transit augments and new public and private interconnection arrangements and we’ve also focused on augments to our cache server footprints across the United States.
Compared to the madness of the holiday season, this quarter has been a relatively quiet one, with the exception of the Super Bowl. Over the last quarter, we’ve deployed hardware upgrades to eastern and central North America. This work represents a capacity increase of 16% of our global footprint, with more hardware caching augments in the works to improve performance. We’ve also added several new features, including Audit Logs, the Magento 1 Extension, and log streaming to Google Cloud Storage.
Traffic has continued to rise; we’ve gone from 2 million requests and 900 gigabits per second at the end of August 2015 to 2.5 million requests and 1.3 terabits per second, and we’ve added three POPs — one in São Paulo, Brazil and two in Australia.
In June, we hosted Fastly Altitude, our first customer summit, where we chatted with existing customers — some large, some small, some old, and some new — about features they’d like to see and ways we could improve Fastly. Traffic growth has continued at a steady pace; we’ve gone from 1.3 million requests and 380 gigabits per second at the end of March 2015 to 2 million requests and 900 gigabits per second, and have upgraded our points of presence (POPs) to the latest design. We’ve also added POPs in: Stockholm, Osaka, Seattle, Denver, Melbourne, and Miami.
