Azion’s journey

Azion provides different products and modules based on edge computing technology, grouped into four main categories that reflect each step in the process of building and managing edge applications:

Following the suggested journey presented below, you can experience this whole process first hand:

  1. Start with a template: select one of the templates to build faster your new edge application. Azion’s team has develop a wide range of templates to attend to different scenarios. Read more about Azion Templates and Integrations.
  2. Go live with Azion: after deploying your application to the edge, you must configure a domain for it, enabling the connection your edge application with other Azion products. You’re also able to point your traffic to Azion Edge Network. Read more about domains on Azion.
  3. View metrics: access to real-time data to view your application’s events, using Azion Real-Time Metrics. Charts exhibit data as soon as your applications begin to have incoming accesses and traffic.

Once you’re ready, just click the Next Page button, located at the bottom-right corner of this page, to start building with Azion.
