Edge computing: how developers can get started

"StackPath’s key focus is to ensure that developers have full flexibility around their deployment model at the edge. Instead of offering serverless deployments only (where developers rely on a third-party to manage and assign compute resources to execute their code), StackPath can also support container and virtual machine deployments. This strategy will likely enable them to focus on a broader range of use cases in the future. They highlighted IoT and distributed edge architecture for blockchain use cases, as well as offering specialized computing such as GPUs (graphic processing units) at the edge, as part of their future ambitions."

How Operators Can Work With Developers to Monetize Edge

"StackPath provides CDN, cloud, and security services including web application firewall and DDoS protection. “We’re an edge services and security company,” said Justin Johnson, VP of developer relations at StackPath. “Think of it like a CDN and a cloud company had a baby.” The company also manages and owns its infrastructure: a 65 Tb/s global network with customized hardware, redundant tier-one carrier connections, and full stack deployment in each of its data center locations. “We’re not a cloud replacement,” Johnson said. “Typically what we’re seeing our customers do is take a microservice or a piece of their application and distribute it closer to their users. This is for very latency-sensitive applications like ad serving, which is very competitive — that’s a big use case.”
