StackPath, the emerging leader in edge computing, announced a joint collaboration with Broadcom to provide advanced edge computing capabilities using Broadcom’s Stingray SmartNIC.
The collaboration is aimed at addressing the growing demand for cloud-based content-delivery services at the edge for streaming video, application performance optimization, and security.
The proliferation of connected endpoints is rapidly increasing the need for highly available, low-latency and flexible edge computing resources. StackPath provides the leading platform for secure edge compute infrastructure including virtual machines (VMs), containers, and serverless, as well as managed edge services such as content delivery network (CDN), web application firewall (WAF), managed DNS, service monitoring, and DDoS protection.
StackPath claims that its edge compute services can connect to end users up to 2.6x faster than competing cloud computing provided by public core cloud providers – crucial to meet the high bandwidth and low latency demands of next generation applications such as online video gaming, real-time video and cloud-based security.

The Stingray SmartNIC’s compact form factor, Truflow offload engine, advanced security co-processors and outstanding compute performance make it an ideal platform to deploy highly secure new services for our customers.

The challenge is how to deliver this innovation in a scalable, reliable and cost-effective manner within a physical environment that substantially constrains the available compute resources. StackPath solved this by deploying a novel server architecture that uses our Stingray SmartNIC.
