Fastly's global edge CDN

Increase your website and app speed with our 130 Tbps¹ of connected global capacity. Fastly’s CDN moves content, data and applications closer to your users — at the edge of the network — to help your websites and apps perform faster, safer and at global scale.

With edge locations in key areas around the globe, Fastly can help improve delivery speeds and serve content faster than if traffic were served from your origin.

CDN made for enterprise, tailored for you.

Unlike other CDN’s, Fastly routes all our traffic through Tier 1 providers, meaning your site or app receives the same performance levels as our enterprise customers like Reddit.

With Fastly you can designate a specific POP to serve as a “shield” for your origin servers. That means as your content expires or gets invalidated, all subsequent requests are sent to your shield. This protects your origin from an onslaught of requests, improves cache hit ratio and reduces egree costs.

Update content in an average of 150ms.

Have total control of what your customers are seeing and ensure they have the most up to date information with Fastly's Instant Purge. Fastly has an average purge time of 150ms⁴. Purging can be done by individual URL, surrogate key, wildcard, or you can purge your entire site at once. 

Fastly allows you to mark content as outdated or slightly stale, instead of permanently removing it from cache. This ensures good user experiences even if your origin server goes down or takes longer than usual to update.

A new architecture for the modern internet

We’ve focused our efforts on placing fewer, more powerful POPs at strategic markets around the world. With Tier 1 transit, solid-state drive (SSD) powered servers, and an engineering team that lives to optimize for speed, we've built a blazing-fast network that requires less hardware to deliver comprehensive global reach.
