Drinks At The Edge - The Future Of Edge - Hotel CBD - Sydney - NSW
Join Derek, Tenzin and Max from Fastly, and fellow technical leaders for a casual evening of drinks, food and quality discussions about all things content delivery, automation and video. As a special bonus, Fastly's CTO Tyler McMullen is flying in to present on "The Future of Edge”, an exciting new direction for Fastly in edge computing which demonstrates Fastly’s innovation in the industry.

About Fastly:

Fastly enables some of the world’s largest web properties to deliver their content with low latency, securely and reliably, to global audiences. Specialising in video delivery, with solutions for Image Optimisation, Web Application Firewall (WAF) and a market leading edge cloud compute capability utilising the power of Varnish (VCL), Fastly is the best choice of CDN for large enterprise, retail, media, government and any organisation which relies on the web for business.

At the end of 2018 Fastly continued to increase its support of the Australian and New Zealand markets, adding capacity to the Fastly CDN footprint in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Perth, Auckland and Wellington and opening the Fastly Sydney office.

Deploying thousands of small, scattered points of presence (POPs) may have worked for legacy CDNs in the dial-up era, but the internet has become increasingly dynamic, and spinning disks no longer get the job done. Fastly has taken a fundamentally different approach: we’ve focused our efforts on placing fewer, more powerful POPs at strategic locations around the world.

With Tier 1 transit, solid-state drive (SSD) powered servers, and an engineering team that lives to optimize for speed, we’ve built a blazing-fast network that requires less hardware to deliver comprehensive global reach. Fastly’s high-density POPs enable us to serve more from cache, including static and event-driven content. This improves your cache hit ratio, resulting in better user experiences.

And we’re a nice bunch of people with awesome support. Come say hi.
