Every edge location features multiple, independent tier-1 carriers, providing enterprise-grade performance and reliability and enabling us to intelligently route traffic around network congestion, weather-caused outages, and other performance obstacles.
Every StackPath edge location has a full-deployment of our advanced infrastructure (not just a single server shoved into someone else’s cabinet), so every site can deliver every service, grows on demand, and provides robust performance with exceptional value.
Our network was designed using architectures and operational principles that legacy edge service providers don’t follow, providing immediate availability, exceptional capacity, and a true platform that gives you nearly endless possibilities.
Every edge location leverages top-of-the-line edge routers and high-density, layer-3, top-of-rack spine switches to deliver high-performance, highly-scalable routing, switching, and security features.
Each edge location is designed to scale almost endlessly, with all servers in our fleet featuring 10/25/40/100Gbps connectivity, and our engineers constantly innovating more ways to open the throttle and throughput.
Every server in our fleet leverages proprietary SmartNIC technology as well as solid state drives (SSDs) to deliver the highest speed, reliability, and unprecedented server-level flexibility and capabilities.
We are proud to have an exceptional number of peering partners around the world which, combined with our transit carriers, let us hand more traffic directly to last-mile networks where end-users are browsing—approximately 95% of the time in Europe and 85% of the time in the United States—for a high-quality end user experience.
Our global Anycast DNS helps you better control the routing of user requests to StackPath services as well as to external infrastructure. It also is built into our deployment processes, simplifying the setup and management of your StackPath services.
Our proprietary traffic and load balancing technology helps guarantee the best end user experience. Armed with a view of the whole network, it makes decisions in real time to route traffic through the fastest, most efficient, and most cost-effective path.
Our infrastructure includes multiple quality of service (QoS) control mechanisms that identify and react to different types of traffic, and then handle them intelligently, simultaneously, to increase efficiency and lower bandwidth costs.
Our advanced Network Operations Centers (NOC) are staffed around the clock with support and ops experts, constantly managing bandwidth, packets, and errors. Alerts are provided based on metrics including thresholds, rate changes, and trends.
Our platform has advanced, integrated safety measures that protect every facet of StackPath and its services from the inside out, so security is a first-order priority, not a second-thought add-on.
Our platform is fully automated and driven by robust, open APIs, which we’ve also used to build a powerful yet easy-to-use customer portal, giving you direct access to and control over your services and account.
