Control & Cost Effectiveness

Latency isn’t just inconvenient—it’s expensive. And the physical distance between hyper-scale cloud data centers and your end-users might not seem big, but every mile matters to applications that measure performance in units smaller than milliseconds.

SP// Containers have the edge that latency-sensitive applications need. Enjoy all of the performance and efficiency benefits of containerization from cloud computing, compounded by the advantage of being in StackPath edge locations worldwide. Exciting? We know. So please contain yourself.


Temporary workloads

Easily scale infrastructure up and down or in and out to meet short-term workload needs with speed, agility, and exceptional cost-effectiveness.

Low-latency application servers

Configure and control container images to run multiple applications and make it exactly the web server, game server, database node, or other low-latency solution you require.

GPU-accelerated workloads

Deliver the computational power required by workloads such as deep-learning algorithms, intense graphical processing, and other parallel architectures.


Ultra-low latency

Deploy containers in any of 38 edge locations, part of our global platform of 73 geographically diverse locations connected by a private network backbone. End-user data can reach our containers up to 2.6x faster than public cloud containers, and data can move between edge locations 21% faster than if routed over the public internet.

Bandwidth optimization

Optimize how much data your workload has to move around the internet by having it processed and returned closer to end-users, reducing total bandwidth usage and minimizing data corruption and vulnerability inherently to data in transit.


Seamless multi-cloud support

Complement and even integrate services from one or more legacy cloud providers with containers designed for vendor neutrality and industry-standard compatibility to avoid vendor lock-in and find new optimization levels by combining the advantages of core cloud and edge computing.

High scalability and flexibility

Leverage Anycast IP addresses and autoscaling to meet demand spikes, route traffic to the fastest-responding VMs, and establish other sophisticated methods to ensure instances are not overloaded, all requests are served promptly, and your operations run efficiently.


More control and cost-effectiveness

Simplify operations by deploying to a fully managed environment with instant deployment, no clusters to deal with, a robust and open RESTful API, support for CI/CD environments and existing DevOps tools like Terraform and direct control over CPU, memory, disk resources and location.

Key features

OCI Image Support

Deploy Open Container Initiative-compliant container images built in your preferred development environment, like Docker or other industry-standard tools. Simply point to your image uploaded to Github or upload it directly to our platform.

Instant Deployment

Have containers running in any or all StackPath edge locations in seconds with a single click or API call.

Anycast IP Addresses

Add Anycast IPs to automatically distribute end-user/client traffic to your fastest-responding container, with traffic being routed more efficiently over our edge networks private network backbone.

Auto-scaling

Seamlessly scales the configured images across PoPs during periods of high demand to ensure application availability without any service degradation.

CI/CD Support

Push changes to containers with CLI tools that integrate with your existing continuous integration and continuous delivery (CI/CD) pipeline, reducing the risk of code changes to mission-critical workloads.

Management API

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

L3-L4 DDoS Protection

Detect and mitigate L3-L4 volumetric attacks for container workloads on SP// Edge Compute with automated detection of 99% of attacks within seconds. DDoS scrubbing is built into each edge location and happens in line with the traffic, adding no additional latency for clean traffic.

Dedicated Hosts

Enjoy host-level isolation to address noisy neighbors, compliance, and privacy requirements, all with the same EdgeEngine™ orchestration engine. Talk with our sales team to get started.

Support Plans

Our optional Silver, Gold, and Platinum Support Plans provide increasing levels of our acclaimed customer and technical support, so that you tailor the level of engagement and assistance you need from StackPath to your specific workload and internal skill levels and resources.
