It provides optimal configurations applicable through the Rules Engine for Edge Application and is designed for broad compatibility, with seamless integration with various existing setups.

The most significant benefits of Static Cache include improved performance, cost-effectiveness, and enhanced user experience.

E-commerce industry professionals will find it extremely functional, given its ability to accelerate page loads and checkout processes. Besides, it also caters to content-oriented websites like blogs, news portals, and portfolios, which require a fast and efficient static content delivery setup.

Image Optimization

The Image Optimization template focuses on enhancing image loading and caching based on the file type, ensuring faster and better-quality image presentation to the end-user. It applies advanced cache key rules via the Rules Engine for Edge Application to optimize the delivery process. This template needs to be linked with your origin and activated with Edge Functions and Application Acceleration for optimal performance.

Significant benefits associated with this template include faster image loading, reduced bandwidth usage, an improved user experience, enhanced image quality, and flexible adjustments for different needs. 

The Image Optimization template exhibits broad utility across various applications.

This template is also advantageous in reducing latency, optimizing websites, and serving cached images from the edge, leading to smooth and rapid delivery to global audiences.

Edge Application Proxy

The Edge Application Proxy template adds a rule layer to ignore all cache settings for a defined URL route. This feature ensures up-to-date delivery of fresh content from the origin. The configurations included in the template apply a standard rule to bypass cache settings, which can be implemented with ease through the Edge Application Rules Engine.

There are numerous benefits to this template, including ensuring data freshness, improving flexibility and user experience, easy integration, and providing a scalable solution. Activation of Edge Functions and Application Acceleration alongside this template will result in enhanced performance.
