Overview

Back to top

Fastly is an edge cloud platform that provides security and delivery services at the network edge, closer to your customers for faster performance. The Fastly extension for Magento replaces native caching in Magento Enterprise and extends across our globally distributed platform. In addition to being Magento’s first and only Premier Technology Partner for content delivery networks (CDNs), Fastly was also selected to be part of the Magento Enterprise Cloud Edition technology stack.

As a Magento merchant, you’ve invested considerable time and money building your online store. Fastly seamlessly enhances your customers’ shopping experience, which correlates to increases in conversion rate and average order value. We enable you to deliver your entire storefront faster, instantly update content globally, and shield your Magento origin from traffic spikes – all from your Magento admin panel.

Fastly is unlike legacy CDNs. We serve more content from cache, even highly personalized content like shopping cart info or recommendations. You can add Fastly’s image optimization offering to transform and tailor images from cache. Our ability to instantly and automatically remove stale content ensures your customers always see accurate inventory, catalog, and pricing data across multiple channels from within the Magento backend. Fastly’s powerful network absorbs traffic spikes, so your website never goes down, even during flash sales, peak holiday season, or a DDoS attack.

Account & Pricing

Base configuration and a Fastly service account are required to use this extension. Sign up for Fastly's service. Pricing for this start at $0.12. Full details can be found on the pricing page.

 

Deliver your entire storefront faster 

  • Accelerate the delivery of personalized content like shopping cart content, login messages, and personalized blocks to show “last viewed products” or recommendations

  • Cache entire webpages using Edge Side Include (ESI), a web standard that allows our caches to mix and match cacheable and uncacheable content; this replaces dynamic elements with ESI blocks and allows you to inject visitor-specific HTML before sending out full page (also known as “hole-punching”)

  • Automatically redirect shoppers to a localized store by detecting their geo-ip or accept-language

 

 Instantly update content globally

  • Distribute your ecommerce site across a global network, comprised of strategically placed points of presence (POPs) in real time

  • Instantly and automatically purge invalid objects so your visitors always see the most accurate information across a multi-channel strategy from within the Magento backend (i.e, changes to inventory, price, or catalog)

  • Purge related sets of objects in a single request using Surrogate Keys (i.e., all items from a given manufacturer or a specific store location)

 

Shield your Magento platform from traffic spikes

  • Absorb traffic spikes on Fastly’s powerful, high performance network so your website never goes down, even during times of heavy traffic like flash sales, peak holiday season or potential DDoS attacks

  • Minimize origin traffic when you update or publish large amounts of new content by collapsing requests from all Fastly POPs to a origin single request (a.k.a. Fastly Origin Shield)

  • Ensure an uninterrupted user experience, even if your origin server goes down or takes longer than usual to update, with the option of showing slightly stale content rather than an error message until Fastly fetches the new content from Magento in the background (a.k.a Fastly Soft Purge)

 

Easy to install and use

  • Install Fastly’s free, open-source extension in less than 30 minutes

  • Control Fastly from your Magento admin panel after setup - you don’t need to touch an code (i.e., set custom TTLs for certain pages or content types, disable caching for personalized content like shopping cart information, and use the debug options to help uncover possible issues)

  • Purge requests can be triggered via an API call, without needing to log into your Fastly account

  • All Fastly service includes free standard customer support, with an option to add premium support as an additional monthly fee

  • Fastly was designed to enable users that want self-service, as well as those who require additional support; as such, we have extensive technical documentation at docs.fastly.com
