          Review ofFastlyFastly

          In addition to having a great service, a powerful API and a perfect uptime the one thing that's really awesome about Fastly is their support. They respond really fast, are very knowledgeable, and do everything they can to help you with your problem (and that includes 1-to-1 chat on irc, skype/hangout call, etc.). Such a great experience.

          Incredible. Lets us cache dynamic pages. Makes other CDNs feel like unwieldy beasts. Support is second to none.
