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.

Incapsula really exceeds if you have a very large amount of traffic, it is a truly durable and resilient WAF. Global load balancing, increased security, added caching, smaller number of sites (but very important)? Then I would recommend Incapsula. Incapsula is always additive to features your infrastructure has and it does those well, so I would always advise using it if your site has high traffic, is business critical, or accesses sensitive information through a SQL backend.

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.

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.

Imperva CDN

  • Web Interface could be better, no overall site details/performance views.
  • API is limited if you do not have a reseller account unnecessarily.
  • Alerting / Reports / Bot
