Fastly, the only real-time content delivery network, is the newest Wowza Tech Alliance partner. Although this marks the start of the official partner relationship, we have worked together for quite some time. In fact, last fall Wowza and Fastly both participated in a content distribution panel at the Media Solutions day hosted by Google Cloud Platform. Many organizations are already using the Wowza and Fastly solutions together, so it made sense for us to formally partner to give our joint customers a much tighter integration.
