CDNs Re-Invented for the Cloud Native Age

evolution-4CDN'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. 

  • Edge Native Database: Store, query and update live data at the edge without sending traffic to origin.
  • Edge Native Compute: Package your code as serverless functions or containers.
  • Dynamic Origins: Dynamic data requests are always routed to the closest edge PoP and serviced in a fraction of the time required by existing CDN approaches (which cannot handle dynamic stateful data).
  • Global Data Protection: Comply with data regulations like GDPR by making sure sensitive data is "mapped and pinned" to specific edge locations. Automatically anonymize data if it transits regions.
  • Global Fault Tolerance: By keeping synchronized copies of your application & database in several worldwide regions, your applications and data are resilient to cloud and network failures.

Dynamic Content Delivery for SaaS

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. 

Customer Consent Lifecycle Management, & Regulatory Compliance 

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. 

Edge Data Ingestion, Processing & Analytics

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. 

Dynamic Data Driven Content for Interactive Applications

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.
