Overview

Fastly is a new generation CDN service created by Artur Bergman, the former CTO of Wikia and funded by Battery Ventures and O’Reilly AlphaTech Ventures. Fastly’s exclusive technology is designed to speed up your entire site architecture for highly dynamic applications. Fastly caches both static and dynamic content and allows you to run instant purges that enable you to build a more robust and dynamic application. Real-time analytics and dashboard provide you intelligence and control to deliver a better end user experience.

Fastly provide customers with an advanced web acceleration solution aimed at delivering content to end users with increased speed and reliability. It does this using four key features.

Content setting can be customised by setting a time to live (TTL) option, specifying how long for different pieces of content are to be made live to end users for. Furthermore, an advanced purge option allows data to be instantly invalidated, eliminating access to old content. This allows customers to have full control over how and when content can be accessed.

The services are offered with access to real time analytics engine. This allows content owners to understand how their end users interact with their content, with easy to read data being provided allowing customers to see which files are most popular, where data is being accesses, and how much bandwidth is being used in real time. This allows customers to decide which content is proving most popular and in which global regions, thus informing decisions when creating and distributing new content.

Web acceleration solution is backed up by a very solid software and hardware platform. With support specialists on hand 24/7 to deal with any technical issues, Fastly’s proven service has dealt with over 5 billion data requests per day for the past three years. Furthermore, a series of health checks can be employed, allowing all backend servers to be monitored for hardware faults. It is for these reasons that companies such as Wikia, Instructables.com and imgix have chosen Fastly as their web accelerator solution of choice.
