Fastly Ships Its First Product Built in Compute@Edge, Unlocking Significant Development Efficiencies and Valuable Customer Benefits
Nearline Cache delivers fast performance, global scale, predictable cost and turnkey operations for customers, and validates the high-velocity development benefits of Compute@Edge
Nearline Cache, a storage solution for customers with large content libraries, like streaming media, gaming, and software companies. Nearline Cache was built in the same serverless compute environment that forms the foundation of Fastly’s ground-breaking Compute@Edge product, enabling Fastly’s product development team to deliver a host of customer benefits and realize significant development and operational efficiencies.
Building Nearline Cache in Compute@Edge validates the foundational promise of the technology to enable breakthrough innovations at scale more easily and quickly. Compute@Edge allowed Fastly to deliver the global scale and high performance customers require, while also reducing their operational overhead and eliminating the unpredictable costs typical with competing solutions. The advantages for Fastly were accelerated development time, global service deployment in seconds, and the ability to fully leverage the power of Fastly’s high-performance, software defined global network.
"It is a really strong proof point for the value of Compute@Edge and Fastly’s ability to innovate faster - it’s a differentiator we plan on leveraging across our product lines, including security, delivery and compute.
Compute@Edge provides a 100x faster code execution startup time than other serverless solutions. And customers gain unprecedented visibility into app development through granular real-time metrics, logging and tracing.
I’m not sure how they can prove that last quote (100x faster).
This may be a nothing burger, and perhaps long overdue, but if there are more of these coming it could bode nicely for the stock.
