Likelihood to Recommend

Fastly

For the use case that it was designed for, Fastly is best-in-class, and used by high-profile companies like Buzzfeed, The New York Times, and Stripe. For websites that require a highly-performant CDN layer, Fastly is a great choice. Fastly is not the best choice for very small companies and very small deployments, and it does not have the ease of implementation into large cloud PaaS vendors like AWS or Azure.

I use WordPress and I believe Google Cloud CDN is the best solution for WordPress hosting.

Pros

Fastly

  • You can put your site behind Fastly and then selectively cache only some of the endpoints. You can modify the responses returned by stripping cookies or other personalization headers.
  • You can deliver images, and based on the user agent being Chrome, decide to serve, for example, a WEBP image format instead of PNG or JPG.

Google Cloud CDN

  • Google Cloud CDN works really well with other Google cloud platform produces like Google Cloud Storage.
  • Users of Google services will have an easier learning curve.
  • The service can really enhance the overall speed of websites and platforms online.

Cons

Fastly

  • Setup can be difficult -- but only because the service is so robust and provides so many features.
  • Minimum spend is $50/month, even if you are not using the service enough to have spent the $50.

Google Cloud CDN

  • It needs very much learning experience. Beginners have to learn so much before actually setting it up.
  • Not so good for small organisations as the pricing is higher than other options.

I didn't have the need to use support from Google when I was either testing or setting up my website. Information was easily found by searching online if I needed to, and the options that I needed to install or enable were there on the setup page. Honestly, I was a former systems administrator so most of this stuff is not challenging for me.

Alternatives Considered

Fastly

It’s the fastest and most configurable.

Google Cloud CDN

Google Cloud CDN works really well for a reliable CDN service, especially when used with other Google Services. It is highly reliable, efficient, and speedy. That said it can also be difficult to implement and lacks some support services found with other CDN services. It does not hold your hand by any stretch and organizations with experienced IT staff will find the best overall use from the service

Return on Investment

Fastly

  • Fastly dramatically reduces load times for clients all over the world thanks to their global system of POPs.
  • Fastly is a cost-effective choice when a highly-performant CDN is required and makes it simple to support data that is quickly invalidated.

Google Cloud CDN

  • Reduced the portal loading time saves time.
  • Promotional mails opens in few seconds when clicked, generates a little bit of confidence in the end users.
