Edge features

With preconfigured features built to perform custom logic at the network edge, you can tailor how your content is served and provide a better shopping experience for your customers. Enjoy popular ecommerce edge features like:


Serve tailored content to shoppers based on virtual boundaries (or geo-fencing) that let you identify user location on a granular level, and direct traffic accordingly.

Device detection

Create the best possible experience for your customers by detecting mobile device data, including details like brand and OS version, and delivering device-optimized content.

ESI (Edge side includes)

Accelerate site performance by serving cacheable content, and only sending requests for “uncacheable” content — such as the shopping cart — back to origin.

Use cases

Solve business problems by leveraging our edge compute features and capabilities. You can create your own solutions, or work with Fastly to develop something more customized at the edge. Overcome common problems like:

A/B testing

Test new page layouts and curate shopping experiences by caching different variants for the same URL at the edge, which preserves SEO rankings without needing separate URLs.

Content targeting

Leverage powerful customer information embedded in every request — like a user’s location, language, and more — so you can strategically tailor and personalize content served from the edge.

Visitor prioritization

Give priority to active buyers, while directing casual shoppers to a waiting room if your site becomes overloaded during peak traffic events.

PCI Compliant Platform

Fastly is a certified Level 1 Service Provider, compliant with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS). We use the power of our edge architecture and fine-grained controls to cache sensitive content in a compliant manner.
