"Fast all SSD CDN for the new generation"

What do you like best?

It is fast, not just in name, their all SSD network put the customers content at milliseconds from the end user. It has presence on 4 continents and more are expected this year. GitHub, Twitter and Imgur trust Fastly for their CDN needs.

What do you dislike?

It has little to no presence in South America, South america is becoming larger and larger in the net and having presence there would be ideal for us

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Fastly has a pay as your go service, similar to that of NearlyFreeSpeech.net, very cheap for low volume traffic, and very fair at high volume traffic

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Gzip all endpoints to ensure webs are small and has a great Control panel with statistics and logs

"A great option for high performance CDN"

What do you like best?

Fastly has always been solid about providing a modern infrastructure to interact with when integrating with a CDN. Features like a well documented API are crucial for getting up to speed quickly.

What do you dislike?

Their admin interface could use some work. It's by no means the worst I've seen, but I've experienced some confusion in navigating their site in the past.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We were looking to get better geographic presence closer to our clients. Some of our remote clients saw great improvements in speed purely by latency improvements.
