CDN's were created to solve the problems of the "old web" - a web that was static and relied heavily on server-side rendering. The "evolved Internet" is powered by dynamic data and interactive content delivered via rich client-side applications to create powerful, instant, responsive digital experiences.
Macrometa's global edge fabric brings the CDN into the modern, cloud-native era by providing a global database and application runtime at the CDN edge. Now your apps no longer run at the origin and get cached at the edge. Instead, they always run on the edge with nothing to cache, purge or expire. The edge is now the dynamic origin for every request and your users are always served the freshest state from the closest edge PoP.
To use Macrometa's Global Edge Fabric, you don't need to be an experienced distributed systems developer. Your hard earned knowledge and skills are completely portable to the edge. Use our Online Resource library to learn about the edge, program our platform using APIs, SDKs with tutorials and example apps.
Let's face it - CDNs don't provide much for SaaS providers. SaaS applications are powered by query driven, dynamic data - and CDNs don't do dynamic data. With Macrometa, SaaS providers can now run their applications and deliver database driven content in-region to their customers. Macrometa's edge delivers a full queryable multi-model database that creates dynamic data results instantly to power SaaS applications in authentication, reporting, analytics, content, and more.
If your online business collects customer information, then you need to deal with very complex and sensitive data handling regulatory requirements. Data regulations like GDPR impose significant financial penalties for non-compliance with customer data handling requirements. Macrometa lets you "pin" and "geo-fence" customer data by each customer's home country or region and ensure that compliance requirements like opting in, notifications, and right to be forgotten are handled easily and quickly.
To unlock the true power of the data you're collecting, you need to process it as quickly as possible. The cloud is simply too distant for applications to unlock the complete value of data generated at the edge and beyond. There's also the cost of network backhaul that makes data-driven pipelines expensive to build.
Macrometa provides a simple and intuitive set of features for you to stream data from millions of devices and users to the closest edge for processing, analysis, and storage. Now get instant insights, alerts, and notifications as things change without the cost and expense of traditional data pipelines.
Media and content providers know that rich personalization and dynamic content create engagement and revenue. But CDNs can't effectively deliver dynamic data or content. Macrometa lets you enhance the static caching of your CDN with the ability to store and query customer data, behavior and analytics at the edge to power engaging and immersive interactive digital content in a way that was not possible before.
