Containers

Deploy your own image at the Internet's edge.

Accelerate
Applications

Put compute closer to end users to reduce response time and improve experiences.

Distribute
Workloads

Deploy and manage workloads in one, many, or all StackPath locations with one click.

Increase
Availability

Balance workloads across clouds and edge locations for better application accessibility.

Reduce
Costs

Reduce unnecessary traffic and processing for lower bandwidth and compute costs.

Net Insight

“StackPath was my first exposure to a system that had truly embraced leveraging containers for delivery and was able to build a distributed application that could scale.”

Stefan Gustafsson • Chief Solution Officer, Net Insight

Why Edge Compute?

Our 45 (and counting) edge locations are strategically placed in the world’s most densely populated areas. That puts compute on our platform closer to more end users and devices than compute in public cloud data centers.

That means data reaches our platform up to 2.6x faster than it reaches central cloud provider data centers, letting you process and return data for latency-sensitive workloads as fast as possible.

StackPath and Public Cloud Provider U.S. Locations

Ultra-low Latency

With locations closer to more end users, data reaches our platform up to 2.6x faster than it reaches central cloud provider data centers, letting you process and return data as fast as possible for latency-sensitive workloads.

StackPath: 29ms
Google Cloud: 66ms
Microsoft Azure: 68.2ms
Amazon Web Services: 75ms

Average of all of each provider’s North American data center/availability zone response times, reported by Cedexis on November 15, 2019.

Example Use Cases

Divide applications into microservices

Break applications into independent microservices that can run as isolated processes for better control, reliability, and savings.

Scale and accelerate batch processes

Start rote, batch processing jobs fast and enable their resources to scale up and down dynamically with demand.

Facilitate machine learning

Run and scale machine learning simulations and models rapidly, as close as possible to original data sources.

Optimize hybrid cloud applications

Streamline operations for workloads that need functions running both on-premises and in the cloud.

Move legacy applications to the cloud

Repackage whole applications and redeploy them on the cloud with little or even no re-development.

Balance loads across cloud providers

Seamlessly balance traffic to multiple central cloud providers to optimize performance and costs and avoid vendor lock-in.

OCI Compatible Images

StackPath Containers support images based on the Open Container Initiative (OCI) image specification. Build in Docker or another industry-standard tool. Upload to Github or right to our platform. Deploy on the edge, on demand.

Anycast Load Balancing

With Anycast IPs on your containers, traffic is routed to the geographically closest compute node, keeping latency as low as possible—even in the event of failover.

stackpath-anycast-1.1
  1. Multiple instances of the same resource—such as an application or content server—in different physical locations are assigned the same Anycast IP address
  2. A user or device wants to connect to that resource, and sends a request
  3. The request goes to the closest SP// edge location, where the StackPath Anycast network routes the request…
  4. …to the fastest/most-responsive instance

Distributed Applications

We make it simple to place and manage your workload across multiple locations. With a single click or API call, you can have containers running in any or all StackPath edge locations in seconds, allowing you to quickly deploy a globally distributed application.

Private Network Backbone

All StackPath edge locations are connected by a dedicated private network backbone, unlike providers that use public Internet routes for “mid-gress” traffic. That means traffic within and between our Edge Compute and Edge Services is faster—up to 21%—and safer. And in many cases unmetered.

Additional Features

SSD Storage

StackPath servers use only high-performance, enterprise-grade SSDs.

Network Policies

Customize how all network traffic is handled before it even reaches your workload.

Built-in Metrics

Data available free for 24 hours and reporting available through a web UI and API.

Robust APIs

Leverage our robust and open RESTful API to automate deploying and managing your workload.
