SANTA CLARA, Calif., Jan. 16, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Web scale, the cloud platform for modern commerce, announced the launch of Web-scale CloudEDGE CDN, the world’s first content delivery network (CDN), independent of cloud and edge computing, designed for the unique performance and programmability needs of commerce.
With more than 80% of sites worldwide failing Core Web Vitals, Google’s latest standard for evaluating website user experience, e-commerce merchants are desperate for a solution.

“We have seen a marked improvement in website performance and our Core Web Vitals scores, allowing us to compete in a business where the level of engagement, conversions and revenue all depend on the user experience. overall,” said John K Nelson Jr., COO, Reeds Family Outdoor Outfitters.
The Webscale CloudEDGE platform provides unprecedented control over the entire application infrastructure, coupled with powerful compute capabilities that enable a wide range of use cases, including:
- Real-time code execution at the edge, facilitating rapid deployment of services around security, as well as headless and PWA environments.
- Deep programmability provides developers with superior flexibility, while minimizing latency and loads on origin servers.
- Original infrastructure, data egress and minimized overhead caused by unpredictable costs.
- Commerce-friendly front-end optimization through reduced requests and minimal content sizes, for faster browser downloads and fast loading.
“Webscale CloudEDGE CDN is a modern CDN intentionally designed to meet the demands of modern commerce businesses; those who have transcended their traditional monolithic roots and seek to deliver a seamless customer experience across a myriad of platforms,” said Sonal Puri, CEO, Webscale. “We watched our clients struggle with emerging issues around site performance and organic search and built the perfect solution to address the core of their challenges.”
