According to a new press release, “Fastly, Inc., provider of an edge cloud platform, today announced Cloud Optimizer, a new offering that enables critical, high-traffic content delivery by sitting between a company’s content delivery network (CDN) and its central cloud. Cloud Optimizer brings customers with multi-cloud or multi-CDN architectures, especially within commerce and high tech verticals, the real-time control and visibility required to make informed business decisions as quickly as possible, without the need to re-architect network infrastructure. Fastly’s Cloud Optimizer will help organizations improve load balancing and intelligent routing, which means end users can enjoy a more reliable digital experience.”
The release goes on, “Other benefits include: (1) Superior Performance: Fastly’s powerful points-of-presence (POPs) are built with solid-state drives (SSDs) and large amounts of memory in well-connected locations around the world to deliver higher cache hit ratio, significantly reducing the need for requests to go back to origin. Customers will enjoy greater security as well, as all traffic is encrypted by TLS. (2) Real-time Control and Visibility: Gain full control with the ability to push out configurations quickly and pivot immediately as needed. Real-time logs combined with client-side analytics allow for rapid insight and true observability down to the network layer. (3) Agility: With intelligent routing capabilities, organizations can switch between origins quickly to avoid getting locked into one provider. Cloud Optimizer can even support integrated configuration with CI/CD systems, and during migrations from on-premise to cloud, or from one cloud provider to another.”
