Edge Storage is a scalable and flexible data storage solution that stores data as discrete objects, each containing its own data, associated metadata, and a unique identifier. This solution now comes equipped with access to the Azion Edge Storage REST API, providing high scalability, accessibility, and cost-effectiveness for various unstructured data storage needs.

See more details on the Edge Storage documentation, the API documentation, and the following guides:


The new Fingerprint integration enables you to capture device and network data to better identify devices accessing your applications.

This integration includes two features:

  • A browser-level script (optional) to capture the browser data and set it as a session cookie.
  • An edge function (mandatory) to capture connection-related data as well as the “frontend fingerprint” (created by the browser script) to create the session fingerprint.

The collected data is used to generate a unique identifier and add it as a request header in other integrations and use cases.

Read the How to install the Fingerprint integration through Azion Marketplace guide for more details.
