Webscale, a company powering modern commerce with a SaaS platform that leverages distributed systems, cloud, automation, machine learning, and DevOps protocols, has announced the release of Webscale CloudEDGE CDN. It’s a cloud-agnostic, compute-at-the-edge content delivery network (CDN) built for specific performance and programmability requirements of ecommerce applications.
With quite some websites worldwide failing Google’s new benchmark for evaluating website user experience, ecommerce retailers are frantically looking for a solution, stated Webscale. By simply caching and delivering static material closer to end users, Webscale’s CloudEDGE CDN would improve Core Web Vitals by up to 30 points. Their CloudEDGE CDN solution would meet the needs of modern commerce storefronts with its innovative serverless edge infrastructure and end-to-end image optimization across any cloud, as well as intelligent caching, compute, security, and advanced features.
“Webscale CloudEDGE CDN is a modern CDN intentionally built for the demands of modern commerce enterprises; those that have transcended their traditional monolithic roots, and seek to deliver a flawless customer experience across a myriad of platforms,” said Sonal Puri, Chief Executive Officer (CEO) at Webscale. “We watched our customers struggle with emerging problems around site performance and organic search and built the perfect solution to address the core of their challenges.”
The Webscale CloudEDGE CDN platform would give the highest control over an application infrastructure, as well as powerful computational capabilities. It would allow users to do things like:
- Real-time code execution at the edge, allowing for the quick deployment of security-related services in headless and PWA settings
- Developers would benefit from deep programmability since it allows them to be more creative while reducing latency and burden on origin servers
- Unpredictable expenses have resulted in reduced origin infrastructure, data egress, and operational overhead
- Frontend optimization for commerce, with fewer requests and smaller content sizes for quicker browser downloads and loading
With offices in Santa Clara, CA, Boulder, CO, San Antonio, TX, Bangalore, India and London, UK, Webscale streamlines the deployment and day-to-day management of storefronts across any self-hosted or fully hosted commerce cloud, including headless and progressive web application architecture. Webscale supports Fortune 1000 businesses such as Dollar General, Unilever, Swarovski, Olympus, Regal Cinemas, and thousands of additional B2C, B2B, and B2E online stores across 12 countries, using multi-cloud environments such as AWS, Google Cloud Platform, and Microsoft Azure.
