The partnership between Fastly and Microsoft Azure takes these capabilities a step further to enable businesses to collect data in real-time from the edge, and pair that with other insights from their analytics and business intelligence tools in a central, integrated platform. Top brands can now instantly identify trends and patterns at scale to make immediate, impactful business decisions informed by big data. Unlike traditional edge solutions, Fastly provides 100 percent of logs in real-time from the network edge, allowing businesses to monitor site performance and troubleshoot issues as they happen. In partnering with Microsoft, Fastly integrates its real-time data logging capabilities for automatic ingestion and analysis of application and engagement performance.
Daniel Yu, Director of Product Marketing at Microsoft stated, “With Azure Data Explorer, engineers can instantly identify trends, patterns, or anomalies from their ever-growing and changing data. Joining forces with Fastly, we can provide innovative organizations with a solution to deeply understand across their edge workloads. Microsoft and Fastly share the same principles of speed, scalability, and flexibility, so we believe the integration of our technologies will provide a unique solution for our customers.”
Dana Wolf, SVP of Product and Marketing at Fastly explained, “Fastly delivers more than a three million log events per second, empowering our customers to easily view their traffic, understand their site health, and make the changes they need as quickly as possible. To this end, we embrace and integrate with a multitude of central cloud platforms. This partnership and the integrations we’re building with Microsoft are another investment in support of our customer-first philosophy, empowering businesses to get the most value out of their operations at the edge.”
