Global edge cloud platform provider Fastly, Inc. announced major enhancements to its [email protected] solution, adding new developer tooling and functionality. Customers are now running production traffic on [email protected], including a vast array of innovative use cases like waiting room tokens, dynamic edge personalisation, authentication at the edge, full serverless applications, and more.
[email protected]’s enhanced tooling empowers developers to architect for unprecedented levels of internet traffic and heightened expectations around digital experiences, while keeping performance, efficiency, and security at the forefront.
For developers looking to build and execute code closer to their end users, [email protected] is a powerful and performant serverless computing environment that runs on Fastly’s globally distributed edge cloud platform. Fastly’s serverless solution provides the benefits of serverless computing without the challenges that typically come with outsourcing infrastructure, allowing for better performance, enhanced visibility, and reduced latency. By building advanced applications and custom logic on the edge, organisations can reduce infrastructure costs and scale instantly.
[email protected] prioritises the developer experience within serverless compute environments, and Fastly continues to deliver on this imperative with its newest enhancements, including:
– Terraform API support: New Terraform support enables developers to treat Fastly infrastructure as code and act as an integrated part of an organisation’s existing tech stack. Through this integration, developers can rapidly program, configure, and provision infrastructure.
– Command Line Interface (CLI): The [email protected] CLI brings to developers a new, streamlined experience to program, build, and deploy applications at scale.
– Expanded language support: Designed to give developers the ability to program in the languages most familiar to them, [email protected] now offers AssemblyScript in beta.
– Observability at your fingertips: Bolstering the mission-critical visibility developers need in a serverless environment, stats and errors are now available in the user interface and managed via API. This allows developers to integrate observability seamlessly into their workflows.
“Serverless is the future of application development and the opportunities it presents for innovation are endless,” said CTO of Fastly, Tyler McMullen. “While this technology is still relatively young, there is growing awareness amongst developers and business leaders alike of what a shift to serverless can mean for their ability to accelerate innovation and scale. And as the technology behind [email protected] nullifies cold starts and cybersecurity threats other serverless offerings often face, serverless now also means better performance and security. We’re incredibly humbled to see the industry-leading use cases our customers are building for things like low latency live streaming, real-time security authentication, microservice migration, content stitching, and more. This latest progress with [email protected] elevates the flexibility and speed engineering teams are relying on to meet the moment.”
