Setting up Global Shield?


#1

Hi guys,

I’m still a bit new to fastly services but I noticed if I setup a shield lets say australia and I warm up the cache in London, it also warms up the cache on my shield which works perfectly, now my question is can I have multiple shields globally so warming up the cache in London will also warm up the cache in other POP locations?

@Gpro we only support shielding from one location, but your question seems to be more related to pre-warming the cache globally. We don’t have any specific tooling that will allow you to do this, but our POP to POP connectivity is much faster than you might expect.

So, with shielding enabled and warming the cache through a few requests manually, you’ve pull the object into our network, and our POP to POP connection optimizations should allow for natural traffic to pull object into cache extremely quickly.
