Rapid delivery is key to providing broadcast-quality video experiences on any device, anywhere. Fastly’s edge cloud platform is built for performance: with a multi-terabit-per-second capacity, we scale to meet the most demanding video and streaming needs.
Our edge cloud platform enables you to deliver live video over common HTTP streaming formats, including Apple’s HLS, Microsoft’s HSS, Adobe’s HDS, and MPEG-DASH. With the power of Varnish Configuration Language (VCL), you can easily define failover scenarios ensuring viewers don’t experience interruptions, even if you have operational issues. And with our full-featured API, you can seamlessly integrate Fastly into your existing architecture and workflows to get up and running quickly.
Fastly’s Dynamic Site Acceleration (DSA) keeps connections between our POPs and your infrastructure open to decrease latency associated with fetching the latest live chunks from origin. You’ll see improved response times for your viewers, letting them consume your stream as close to live as possible.
Our request collapsing feature further enhances performance by consolidating multiple requests for the same live stream down to one request back to origin. This prevents your origin from being bombarded with millions of requests for the same content. Reducing origin load also helps save on infrastructure costs.
We partner with best-of-breed solutions to offer joint customers an enhanced end-to-end video workflow. We have built-in integrations with infrastructure-as-a-service providers like Google Cloud Platform and video workflow management services like Wowza Media Systems.
Since our powerful edge cloud platform is fully programmable, partners can also build key application components directly on our infrastructure. This simplifies deployment for joint customers while reducing infrastructure costs for partners.
