Fastly Expands Market Reach with Simplified Pricing, Packages

Fastly Inc., a leader in edge cloud platforms, has simplified its pricing and packages for its core services, making it easier for companies to try, buy and use the Fastly platform.

These packages for delivery, security, and edge computing, will make adoption of Fastly technology faster, easier and more predictable for new users while creating a more attractive offering and experience for large existing customers looking to expand their deployments.

“Today’s fast-moving market demands innovation, but also greater flexibility to meet all enterprise business needs. Fastly has understood this all the way. Their new packages and pricing, combined with its powerful platform, enables global users to deliver the best-in-class customer experiences, wherever they are in their digital transformation today, and have the ability to scale quickly and efficiently as their businesses grow and thrive,” said Ghassan Abdo, IDC Research, VP, WW Telecom, Virtualization & CDN.

To simplify pricing, Fastly has added flat-rate pricing options for customers who don’t want to manage usage-based consumption. The predictable pricing removes the risk of surprise bills associated with events like traffic spikes, global malicious attacks, or misconfigurations, which can result in overage charges on pay-per-use plans.

Pricing is straightforward, transparent and competitive, with no fine print or hidden charges. Customers have the flexibility to mix and match packages to meet their needs.

The packages (Starter, Advantage and Ultimate) are designed to cover the needs of all companies. Every Fastly package includes the company’s technical and customer support.

Usage-based pricing will remain available for any customer who prefers it, and Fastly will innovate and expand on its usage-based options.

Additionally, Fastly has expanded its free tier to make it easier for everyone to try the company’s delivery, security, computing, and observability offerings – with no commitment.

The number of self-service trial options has increased as well. In addition to the in-house analytics tools Domain Inspector and Origin Inspector, free trials for WebSockets and Fanout are available. Customers can use these tools at the edge, allowing their app to engage in bidirectional updates with large audiences in real-time.

Fastly plans to add more self-service trial options across its portfolio throughout the rest of the year.

Fastly is leveraging its partner program to reach more users and make the adoption of its platform easier and faster.

In addition to security, Fastly offers its network service portfolio for channel partners to sell to their customers, to help drive more value and provide improved service and support for businesses

Growth and usage milestones are baked into the new packages, and align to the customer’s growth, making it easier for partners to guide customers on the optimal time to upgrade. The packages provide more upsell/cross-sell opportunities with easy bundling and low-risk entry points to try in an all-in-one solution.
