Flexible, controllable platform to deliver web applications

Content Delivery Network leverages our scalability, global footprint and proven customer service.

Businesses require freedom of choice when it comes to running applications and workloads. Different use cases have different physical and virtual locations, and developers need full control to configure and test changes before rolling out to production.

With CenturyLink Edge Compute, workloads can be deployed on our global edge network with 60+ PoPs in over 40 locations globally or even on-premises to optimize application performance and security. Developers can choose, configure, and deploy edge software from their own custom workloads or from an extensive library of best-of-breed edge modules.

Full DevOps workflow integration moves more logic to the edge so that every change can be tested in dev, test and staging environments. HTTP/2 and extensible APIs help enterprise engineering teams speed up deployment cycles and automate workflows so they can be moved into production as quickly as possible with minimum risk.

Advanced static and dynamic content cache configurations significantly reduce latency while keeping user experiences interactive, while real-time enriched logs and trending metrics help quickly track, identify and diagnose traffic trends, issues and incidents.

CDN Edge Compute Use Cases

CDN brings content and customers closer
Essential HTML caching

HTML document delivery is the critical first step in any page load. CDN Edge Compute is unique in providing a framework for caching HTML documents, the first piece a browser receives when loading a web page.

CDN improves security and reduces latency
True Origin Shield Security

An origin shield is essentially a caching layer in front of your servers. CDN Edge Compute caches both static content and HTML documents at the edge to provide a true origin shield that protects your entire application.

Delivering streaming online video globally using CDN
Global Network = Faster Performance

CDN Edge Compute serves traditional CDN workloads to improve performance across all devices, then goes another step by enabling dynamic content caching and HTML streaming at the edge.
