Fastly is a cloud computing services provider that operates an edge cloud platform for processing, serving and securing the customers’ applications and networks.

1. Who is Fastly

Founded in United States in 2011, the company initiated from a motive of Fastly’s founder and Chief Architect, Artur Bergman, who set out to address the limitations of legacy Content Delivery Networks (CDNs).

At the time of the inception, the lack of flexibility, visibility, and scalability in the legacy CDNs prompted Artur to envision a radically modern approach. He recognized a pressing need for a modern solution that offered fast, secure, and reliable experiences at a massive scale and aimed to design a platform that could meet the demands of companies ranging from those handling real-time airline bookings to online ticket sales and breaking news on the web.

Out of this necessity, Fastly was born.

Nowadays, Fastly’s vision is continuing to optimize its edge cloud computing capabilities and provide a programmable and reliable platform which enable developers to deliver a modern digital experience that meets the demand of real-time transmission for current users, while simultaneously providing scalable, secure and high performance internet services.

Network -> CDN (Content Delivery Network)

Boost performance and scale

Fastly network architecture with hyper-connected, high-capacity POPs and lightning-fast purging, ensures more content remains cached, improving performance, scale and user experience.

Reduce delivery costs

Serving more content from cache reduces trips to the origin, reducing egress costs. Use Fastly as an Origin Shield for further cache efficiency. With Fastly’s network, ensure availability and uptime with protection from traffic spikes and attacks. Full configurability means changes are automatically passed from development to production.

Improve developer productivity

Fastly’s highly configurable network offers developers real-time configuration control, comprehensive APIs, stress-free rollbacks, and real-time logs for quick issue resolution, reducing dependence on professional services and release queues. Seamless integration with CI/CD cycles and DevOps tools enhances workflows and developer satisfaction.

Compute

Compute is an advanced serverless platform built on open standards that runs your code, in your favorite language, on our global edge network. It’s designed to address the requirements of modern application development by empowering customers to run code in a highly secure execution environment with microsecond cold start times, at scale, on the edge.

Focus on app development, not minimizing cold start time.

With Wasmtime, Compute offers code execution startup times in microseconds, not milliseconds. Developers can run complex code across multiple environments and can test with live logs plus debugging. This allows developers to rapidly deploy experiments to optimize customer touchpoints that drive higher conversion rates and boost revenue.

No servers required

Avoid the challenges that typically come with outsourcing infrastructure, like VMs or containers, and reduce the operational burden on your teams. Take advantage of flexible deployment options including the Fastly web interface, the Fastly API, Fastly’s Terraform provider, or the Fastly CLI.

Improve DevOps and developer productivity

Developers enjoy ease of deployment with full support for Terraform and GitHub. Deploy Compute in any CI/CD environment using our RESTful API. DevOps teams can rapidly program, configure, and provision infrastructure on our platform, freeing app developers to focus on delivering features, without worrying about how to scale them.

Observability

Real-time logging

Stream or view real-time log files within the Fastly app or wherever you consume data.
Fastly allow log message details to be highly customized so that you send precise data with the information you need and none of the noise that could slow you down.
Monitoring live insights where you push configurations allows for streamlined issue detection to resolution.

Edge Observer

Complete end to end visibility over your network and unlock the power of data with Fastly’s comprehensive observability platform. Gain full visibility into over 200 metrics spanning across all Fastly services, allowing you to create a holistic view of your network performance and customer behavior. 

Domain Inspector

Assess your delivery performance at the domain level and keep track of every domain request, byte, and status code for a single fully qualified domain name (FQDN) or multiple domains within a Fastly service. Domain Inspector metrics are easy to use alongside Origin Inspector and edge metrics, helping you glean valuable insights for your business.

Origin Inspector

Explore metrics from responses delivered from your origin servers with clear datasets and visualizations that allows you to effortlessly monitor every aspect of your origin performance.
Integrating a content delivery network (CDN) into your delivery network is paramount for boosting performance and speed. However, it shouldn’t come at the expense of compromising visibility into your origin’s performance.
