Modern network design

Modern network design

To successfully move compute power to the edge, you need network architecture that supports instant data availability, particularly in light of today’s data-rich applications.

Fastly POPs consist of powerful servers with 100% solid-state drives and plenty of RAM, and are strategically located at internet exchange points to cache more at the edge for longer — even rapidly changing API responses. And because our proprietary software stack comes with built-in routing and load balancing, we always send traffic to the most optimal POPs for faster response times.

Edge Compute : Powerful Language

Powerful edge computing language

Your customers expect real-time experiences, and a delay of even a few seconds can have dire consequences — which is why Fastly’s edge deals in nanoseconds. Our technology was built with a laser-sharp focus on speed and flexibility, so you can accomplish what you need quickly, while boosting your end users’ experiences.

And with our customizable Varnish Configuration Language (VCL), you can perform intelligent caching, push application logic to the network edge, and tailor the experience based on your end users’ location, language, and device type.

Agile Platform

Agile platform

Developers need feature-rich experiences to embrace edge compute technology, and bring the power of the core cloud to the edge — and our highly configurable platform was designed to address just that. With full API access, developers can make their own changes on the fly, identify and troubleshoot issues with real-time streaming logs, and instantly rollback code if needed.

Build Fastly into your technology stack, and you can power continuous integration and delivery efforts, and seamlessly push new code to production as often as you want. Explore continuous integration and delivery further in our technical brief.

Edge compute : Built-in security

Built-in security

Businesses need a security solution that doesn’t compromise performance. Our globally distributed network provides rapid protection against web application vulnerabilities, as well as DDoS and botnet attacks. And because our security is built into the same platform as our delivery services, you’ll enjoy API access, instant visibility, and more control.

Fastly enables real-time insights into suspicious traffic, the ability to enforce security rules at the edge of your network, and more. To dive deeper into how we’re protecting customers, visit our cloud security page.
