Their Fastly Cloud Accelerator partnership with Google allows Fastly clients to connect directly to the Google Cloud backbone, and configure a Fastly origin shield in front of their GCE storage bucket.

Other CDN providers participating in the Google Cloud Platform CDN Interconnect program are EdgeCast, Highwinds, Level3, Akamai and CloudFlare.

Fastly uses web application accelerator Varnish, and allows clients to upload their custom VCL (Varnish Configuration Language) to the Fastly platform. Currently, there is one alternative to Fastly when it comes to uploading custom VCLs, and that is ‘developer CDN’ section.io.
