CDN Edge Computing

Intelligent Content Delivery at our CDN Edge

The cdnclould Distributed Compute Environment (DCE) offers an easy, flexible solution for executing code at the network edge nearest to the end user. Our DCE allows you to develop and deploy your applications faster and cost less. Our platform provides the following unique key features:

  • The ‘serverless’ cdnclould DCE offers the advantages of a FaaS (Function as a Service), including fast prototyping at a low price point
  • Hosted Modules Saas, for enabling Software as a Service for technology companies, offer advantages in operation, speed to market, and costs for both developers and business owners
  • In addition, we support ESI (Edge Side Includes)


Problem Set

Older site acceleration methods, such as Dynamic Site Acceleration (DSA), are able to improve some aspects of website performance, such as Connect and SSL times. However, if performance is degraded by the application itself, then DSA can do very little to improve the end user experience as measured by stats like Time to First Byte (TTFB), etc. Application performance may sometimes be improved by adding capacity, but this can be an expensive, time-consuming, proposition for an application owner.

At cdnclould we make extending applications easier by providing a global, serverless computing platform that pushes application logic closer to end users. For legacy applications, our DCE improves performance for the end user and helps control backend costs by distributing the processing globally.

FaaS – The serverless Distributed Computing Environment

Our FaaS offering provides several key advantages for developing and prototyping, including:

  • Faster app development: Save time and reduce the size of your custom code base, reducing the risks of bugs often found in monolithic applications
  • Quick, incremental code changes: provides for a loose coupling of smaller software components, improving the likelihood that developers will be able to change one service without breaking other services that depend on it
  • Cost: a FaaS service offers clear cost advantages over a full cloud server instance
  • Scaling: as app logic is distributed, the system can scale because there is no monolithic point that prevents the system from expanding

Currently, we support Varnish VCL and Lua

Software to Service

With our Hosted Modules offering, we make it easier for you to deploy a SaaS offering with a NGINX or Varnish module, including hosted custom modules.

Developer benefits:

  • User Management framework available – less code to write to develop a SaaS offering
  • Superior to competing competing “container as a service” solutions
  • Our solution becomes a turnkey offering from which a service offering is made easy
  • Analytics framework – instant visibility
  • Delivers visibility without additional development
  • Not available with current “container as a service” offerings today
  • DNS Configuration – a holistic view, with end-to-end provisioning for your application requirements
  • Automatic distribution – less code to develop and manage
  • Managed platform – lower operational costs

Business owner benefits:

  • Faster time to market
  • Lower development costs
  • Lower operational costs
