Overall Satisfaction with StackPath (formerly Highwinds) CDN

We use StackPath as a CDN. We also utilize the firewall and edge-side scripting.
  • Caching.
  • Fast network.
  • Edge scripting.
  • Analytics.
  • Many options hidden in API.
  • Web console.
  • Easy to implement.
  • Easy to maintain.
  • Good rates.
  • Flexible.
Cloudflare is the market leader, specifically with Workers. StackPath is mainly compatible with Workers, so it's really nice that you can use (mostly) the same code to deploy to both. Workers is a more mature product.

AWS Lambda@Edge with CloudFront is more frustrating to use. Fastly doesn't yet have anything comparable (that is out of private beta), unless you count VCL.

Do you think StackPath Edge Delivery delivers good value for the price?

Did implementation of StackPath Edge Delivery go as expected?


Would you buy StackPath Edge Delivery again?


It is great as a primary or backup CDN. We have had no issues with performance. The cache hit ratio is high.

Some of the options are hidden within the API and you have to configure them with API calls, such as configuring signed fetch requests to an S3 origin. These should be in CLI or Web Console. The deployment of edge side scripts with the CLI or CI/CD could be improved.
