Run Your Real-Time Applications Reliably and On the Edge
Edge Computing is a groundbreaking service that enables you to execute custom real-time application logic on our patented, worldwide network, at the edges of the Internet, with the highest levels of performance, scalability, and reliability in a cost-effective manner. The Mirror Image network consists of massive, globally balanced infrastructure that offloads traffic from your origin servers, and provides a presence close to each end user, ensuring optimal application performance.
Our Edge Computing service is ideal for handling a wide range of custom applications and use cases, including programmatic mobile and display advertising applications, stream and asset authentication, online data collection, and targeting and customization initiatives based on cookies, device type, geo-location, and other request attributes—as well as many other use cases.
Tightly integrated with all of our Media and Content Delivery services, Edge Computing makes it easy to programmatically create a unique online experience for every browser or device in real time. Powered by our flexible Edge Computing Framework, and a set of extensible Edge Computing Solutions, it provides configurable building blocks that speed and simplify the development and deployment of new, highly customized applications.
For web applications that require low latency and guaranteed availability, Mirror Image’s Edge Computing services are a superior alternative to internal server build-outs and traditional cloud computing services. Internal server build-outs are expensive and tedious, requiring excess capacity to handle traffic surges, and a staff of server experts 24×7. And traditional cloud service providers offer general-purpose computing platforms that are not optimized for real-time, globally distributed online applications that require very low latency and high availability operations for handling heavy Internet traffic.
Low latency, worldwide. High capacity datacenters are strategically located throughout North America, South America, Europe, and Asia to ensure low latency response times regardless of each user’s location.
Automatic elastic scalability. Traffic spikes are handled automatically, regardless of how the traffic patterns shift geographically. Your applications execute on all of our data centers simultaneously, and we scale up and down automatically in response to load. There’s no configuration work required by the customer, ever.
Optimized for high request rates. Unlike traditional cloud providers, our network is optimized for handling very high request rates with guaranteed availability and low latency. We routinely process hundreds of thousands of requests per second for various customer applications.
Eliminates single point of failure. Since all customer applications reside on all of our data centers, there is no single point of failure.
Faster deployment, easier maintenance. Our Edge Computing Framework and rich set of extensible solutions make it fast and easy to deploy custom application logic on our network—without having to re-engineer each new application from scratch.
High touch relationship. Our skilled support engineers are knowledgeable in the details of each implementation, and provide fast and accurate response and maintenance as your requirements change.
Cost effective. Flexible pricing models allow you to choose the model that works best for your business, including CPM (cost per thousand requests) pricing. This lets you pay one price based on the total number of requests to the application each month, eliminating any penalties for spiky traffic profiles.
Stronger SLAs. SLAs guarantee high availability and low response times, and provide concrete credits and remedies.
