Acquia Cloud Edge

Performance Highlights

Load-Balanced CDN

Acquia Cloud Edge CDN speeds up your sites by distributing content across the web through a global content delivery network (CDN). It automatically optimizes the delivery of your Drupal web pages so your visitors get the fastest page load times and best performance from wherever they are around the world.

Global Scale

Acquia Cloud Edge CDN’s Global Anycast network with 165+ data centers in 75 countries absorbs highly distributed attack traffic so you stay online. 

Web Content Optimization

Acquia Cloud Edge CDN cuts page load times by up to 50 percent, and on average, decreases the number of requests hitting your origin web servers by up to 65 percent, and decreases bandwidth utilization by up to 60 percent.

Security Highlights

Proven DDoS Protection

Acquia Cloud Edge’s network capacity is 15 times bigger than the largest DDoS attack ever recorded. With 20 Tbps of capacity, it can handle any modern distributed attack, including those targeting DNS infrastructure.

Web Application Firewall

Acquia Cloud Edge mitigates over 90 percent of this HTTP attack traffic with its proven web application firewall (WAF), blunting the attack and enabling your Drupal site to stay online.

Easy SSL

Acquia Cloud Edge includes a single SAN certificate per domain that covers the bare domain and wildcard third-level domains. If you want to use your own custom SSL certificates, you can upload the same certificate that you use on Acquia Cloud to Acquia Cloud Edge.

Powered by a Global Network

A global network of 165-plus data centers absorbs the flood of attack traffic at the edge and caches static content so it is stored closer to Drupal site visitors. Once the exclusive domain of elite hackers, the methods and resources available to conduct such attacks have evolved dramatically, allowing large-scale, global DDoS and web application attacks.

Put Your Content Closer to Your Customer 

A 1-second delay in page load time equals 11 percent fewer page views, a 16 percent decrease in customer satisfaction, and 7 percent loss in conversations. Acquia Cloud Edge CDN speeds up your Drupal sites by distributing content across the web through a global content delivery network. Edge CDN automatically optimizes the delivery of your web pages so your visitors get the fastest page load times and best performance from anywhere in the world.
