Deploy workloads closer to end-users than ever before.
High Scalability & Flexibility
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 workloads that measure performance in units smaller than milliseconds.
SP// Virtual Machines have the edge that latency-sensitive workloads need. Enjoy all of the scalability, efficiency, access and control benefits expected from a cloud VM, compounded by the advantage of being in StackPath edge locations worldwide. Put your workloads virtually in end-users’ backyards.
Low-latency application servers
Configure and completely control a full computing environment to run multiple applications and make it exactly the web server, game server, database node, or other low-latency solution you require.
Private edge applications
Create, use, or even sell our own edge application, such as a content delivery network, virtual desktops, DNS resolvers, and more.
Deliver the computational power required by workloads such as deep-learning algorithms, intense graphical processing, and other parallel architectures.
StackPath has helped Network Next deliver better digital experiences for our customers. Among our suppliers, StackPath is consistently in the top-performing group in many locations.”
Glenn Fiedler • CEO, Network NextCase Study
Deploy VMs 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 VMs up to 2.6x faster than public cloud VMs, and data can move between edge locations 21% faster than if routed over the public internet.
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.
StackPath VMs are designed to become a seamless part of your multi-cloud strategy. Familiar controls, open source operating systems, and robust APIs make it easy to integrate and manage StackPath VMs in manual operations, automated workflows, and CI/CD pipelines, to complement third-party services with new levels of optimization and speed.
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.
CentOS, Ubuntu or Debian Installed
Deploy VMs with the latest certified CentOS, Ubuntu, or Debian distributions of Linux installed, configured by StackPath using best security and performance practices.
Anycast IP Addresses
Add Anycast IPs to automatically distribute end-user/client traffic to your fastest-responding VM, with traffic being routed more efficiently over our edge network’s private backbone.
Image Capture & Storage
Capture and store images of existing VMs to enable autoscaling, rapid deployment, or convenient rollbacks for version control and backward compatibility.
Seamlessly scale up and out during periods of high demand to ensure workload availability without any service degradation.
Have VMs running in any or many StackPath edge locations in seconds with a single click or API call.
Push changes to VMs 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.
L3-L4 DDoS Protection
Detect and mitigate L3-L4 volumetric attacks for VM 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.
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.
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.

High performance, fully automated platform designed to deliver proximity, distribution, and cost optimization for latency-sensitive and distributed applications.
Network & locations
Complete deployments of our computing, networking, and orchestration stack, strategically located where businesses and end-users are most densely concentrated.
Comprehensive orchestration simplifies provisioning, configuration, and management of solutions and account details through API and easy-to-use customer portal.
SP// Virtual Machines are billed based on the number of VMs running in each location. VM usage is calculated by the second after a 5-minute per VM minimum. Sign up and get started or request a demo today.
