Benefits

Better control and performance

Centralize management and create a single origin for multiple CDNs by adding on Media Shield, and improve your performance and availability in the process.

Developer-first configurability

Fastly puts the tools in developers hands, with full API integration and a highly configurable edge computing language that lets you generate, compile, and implement changes quickly, with no downtime or support calls.

Reduce costs

Reduce overall bandwidth and request volume which results in lower egress costs and requires fewer origin servers to handle the same volume of traffic.
