Warpshield is our implementation of an origin shield. An origin shield is a so-called mid-tier caching layer that protects your origin from overloading. Our origin shield implementation is the first in the world made for, and integrated in, a multi-CDN setup.

Warpshield features


Overload protection

When you reset your cache or publish new content, all CDN edge servers send requests to your origin. This can quickly overload it. Origin Shield stops this.

Efficient Origin Requests

Once enabled, multiple edge requests for uncached content are sent to Origin Shield. It then filters these multiple requests into a single origin request.


Better Purging & Provisioning

Whether you provision fresh content regularly or have large files that require the occasional cache purge, Origin Shield handles request spikes gracefully.
