Basic question: will content be replicated across PoPs instantly


#1

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 https://docs.fastly.com/guides/performance-tuning/shielding for more information.

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

This is more a freestyle type of forum than a question & answer + upvote type like stackoverflow or expert exchange.
