Company

Company Fastly Medianova
Short profile Founded in 2011, Fastly has grown into a mature CDN provider. Fastly offers a range of services including streaming media delivery and private CDN but Fastly is best known for being a 'real-time CDN', meaning changes happen instantly and the platform can deliver 'uncacheable' content well. Medianova is originally a Turkey CDN, but in the last few years has grown quickly to become a global player with a strong presence in Europe. Medianova uses modern technologies like their patent pending Dockerized CDN Platform, HTTP/2, BBR and Brotli.
