Basic question: will content be replicated across PoPs instantly


Hi all,

If I have an asset with an expires header for 1 hour and the asset is requested for the first time from say, Fremont, will the cache be replicated across all fastly PoPs instantly?


We don’t replicate automatically, but we do offer something called Origin Shielding, which makes sure that within the expiry time you only get the one request. See for more information.


Thanks. Is there a way to mark this as the answer.
