Extend caching benefits to long-tail content with Nearline Cache
Fastly Nearline Cache offers longer-term storage without egress charges near the origin shield node. This means you can save on your origin costs while also making your service more resilient. Nearline Cache builds on our existing origin shielding and request collapsing functionality to reduce egress costs and add a safety net in case of origin failure. Combine with Media Shield or Cloud Optimizer to extend these concepts to multi-CDN deployments even outside of the Fastly network.
Simple set up
Automatically populates on the first cache miss
Adds an extra layer of redundancy so your end users can continue to enjoy requested content even if the origin fails without needing to add another vendor
Improve performance and control
Stores content close to the origin shield for an extended period of time and allows you to control what content is placed in Nearline Cache and the retention period
Save on egress costs
Avoid incurring additional egress costs for requests that would normally require a trip back to origin
