alternative to Fastly


Fastly is a “real-time” CDN provider founded in 2011 by the former CTO of Wikia, Artur Bergman.

They support a wide variety of content types and their Fastly Cloud Accelerator is directly connected with the Google Cloud Platform (GCP) backbone.

Fastly has a fantastic marketing formula, but their CDN performance is generally lacking. With a complex pricing scheme on top, we recommend to reconsider your options.
