Fastly Launches New Edge Cloud Tools

SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. (AUGUST 6, 2019) -- Fastly, Inc., a provider of an edge cloud platform, today announced the launch of a new collection of tools that make it faster and safer for developers to discover, test, customize, and deploy edge cloud solutions. The collection of 60 code-based solutions is designed to help developers learn the ins and outs of advanced edge solutions and simple configurations alike by leveraging a repository of pre-tested recipes and tutorials for the most popular edge solutions, such as A/B testing and authentication.

Thousands of developers depend on Fastly to push complex logic to the edge in the pursuit of better digital experiences for their customers. Without access to a single repository for these edge cloud solutions, developers are forced to create solutions repeatedly from scratch. This new collection of tools was born out of countless collaborations and problem-solving discussions with Fastly’s global community of customers.

Now, developers can find resources at-the-ready to safely test and iterate on code, streamlining the process of innovating at the edge to reduce development time and more easily deploy powerful and practical extensions at the edge, at scale.

“Our programmable edge has always been one of the capabilities that our customers love about our platform, so we made a commitment to make it easier for developers to use all the innovative solutions our customer base is building on our edge," said Fastly SVP of Customer Solutions Adam Denenberg. "Providing an easy way to use prebuilt solutions on our platform was just a logical evolution to allow our customers to innovate even faster, and this launch marks another phase in our drive to empower developers around the world."

The easy-to-search index of 60 code-based solutions built using Fastly’s Fiddle technology offers several benefits to developers, including quickstart code to try out ideas on Fastly’s platform, as well as tutorials to educate developers on Fastly extensions by providing deconstructed views of how complex solutions work on Fastly’s edge.
