Deploying thousands of small, scattered points of presence (POPs) may have worked for legacy CDNs in the dial-up era, but the internet has become increasingly dynamic, and spinning disks no longer get the job done. Fastly has taken a fundamentally different approach: we’ve focused our efforts on placing fewer, more powerful POPs at strategic markets around the world. With Tier 1 transit, solid-state drive (SSD) powered servers, and an engineering team that lives to optimize for speed, we've built a blazing-fast network that requires less hardware to deliver comprehensive global reach. Fastly’s high-density POPs enable us to serve more from cache, including static and event-driven content. This improves your cache hit ratio, resulting in better user experiences.

Our real-time “Tachometer” displays Requests per second, Cache hit ratio, Hit time, and Bandwidth based on aggregated requests and bandwidth across our network. These figures include usage and services from all of our customers, as well as trial, developer, nonprofit and open source program, and other non-paying accounts. These figures also include usage from our own internal health check requests. As such, these figures are only for informational purposes to show the scale of our network and do not reflect or predict our revenue or financial performance. You should not rely on our Tachometer to evaluate our business or expected financial results.
