Are there any strategies for dealing with Fastly CDN content being blocked by the Great Firewall of China?
Here’s a particular example:
This is (as of the time I am writing this, filename unique hash may change in the future) a live file on the current customer homepage in the HTML source at https://discuss.elastic.co/ . Just pick the current name of the
/elastic/assets/vendor-* file it is different from the above
It does appear some checkers show problems connecting to this Fastly CDN content URL from China due to blocking by the Great Firewall of China:
This checker also shows that file as blocked:
https://discourse-cdn.global.ssl.fastly.net/ela…is 100% blocked in China
I suspect our Fastly CDN shares an IP with some resource that is blocked by the Great Firewall of China for political reasons.
Is there anything we can do to circumvent or get around this?
