Fastly + Google Cloud

Extend the power of the cloud to the edge with Fastly + Google

Improve performance, get real-time insights, and lower your egress costs

Why Fastly + Google Cloud Platform?

Google Cloud Platform (GCP) allows you to build, test, and deploy applications in a scalable, reliable cloud environment. Fastly’s collaboration with Google Cloud combines the power of GCP with the speed and flexibility of the Fastly edge cloud platform.

Cloud migration your way

Easily migrate to Google Cloud Platform (GCP) from other cloud providers — without performance degradation — thanks to Fastly’s cloud-based, Layer 7 load balancer. And support your microservice architectures and containers within GCP via custom rules, built to intelligently route traffic.

Deliver better online experiences

Whether you need to update inventory, pricing, or content on the fly, we’ve got you covered. Deliver users the most recent content by caching full pages at the network edge with Fastly’s Instant Purge (which lets you invalidate stale content lightning-quick — within 150 ms or less globally). You can even purge an entire set of outdated objects in one go, without a performance hit, with surrogate key purging.

Real-time visibility, real-time control

See what’s happening with your traffic, and address potential threats early, with real-time insights into web and application traffic. Fastly streams 100% of logs in real time to Google Cloud Storage and Google BigQuery. And using a BigQuery database, you can combine log data with Google Analytics, Google Ads data, or security and firewall logs for even more intel. But if you’re looking for plain-and-simple backup, Fastly real-time logs can also be sent to Google Cloud Storage.

Reduce egress costs

Egress costs can get pricey. They occur when platforms like Fastly fetch content from a cloud-based origin, move that data from the cloud provider to a point of presence (POP), and deliver it to an end user. But with Fastly and GCP, you can significantly reduce network egress costs by configuring Google Cloud Storage or Google Compute Engine, and pointing it to Fastly’s Origin Shield. You can also take advantage of special egress rates from Google. Win win.

With Fastly’s Google BigQuery integration, we can capture edge data and join to our other key data streams, to improve our understanding and produce a better experience for our 150 million unique monthly visitors.
