European cloud and CDN firm Gcore has launched a new serverless Edge solution called FastEdge. FastEdge is built upon Gcore's content delivery network (CDN), which distributes the custom code across more than 160 Edge nodes worldwide.

Gcore notes that this serverless Edge solution was designed for cloud-native development and provides low latency (average of 30 ms) and high performance without the complexity of server or infrastructure maintenance and management. It uses WebAssembly runtime environment which can launch applications quicker than container-based solutions. Moreso, it can support lightweight AI model execution at the Edge and removes the need for developers to invest and create their own AI infrastructure.

"We designed FastEdge, our new Edge computing product, to enable the dev community to build and deploy useful applications quickly, easily, and globally, without the limitations of traditional cloud computing," said Andre Reitenbach, CEO at Gcore. "Edge computing is the next big step in the evolution of CDN that empowers creative minds to innovate and deliver unique value eliminating geographical barriers."
