FASTLY CDN FOR MAGENTO2 DOCUMENTATION
Thank you for using the "Fastly CDN module for Magento2" (Fastly_Cdn).
This package contains everything you need to connect fastly.com (Fastly) with your Magento commerce shop and to get the most out of Fastly's powerful caching capabilities for a blazing fast e-commerce site.
The Fastly_Cdn module relies on Magento2's page cache functionality and extends its Varnish capabilities to leverage Fastly's enhanced caching technology and Geo-IP support.
The second component, the VCL, configures Fastly's Varnish to process the client requests and Magento's HTML responses according to the Cache-Control headers the Fastly_Cdn module adds to every response.

The module utilises a number of features of Fastly's services. This section will provide a brief overview of the ones available in the Fastly_Cdn module.
Geo IP Detection: Using the client's IP this allows a regional store to be delivered to the user.
Serving Stale on Errors: This allows an expired copy of content to be used in case of errors on the origin. This prevents site outages being visible to users.
Serving Stale while Revalidating: This allows an expired copy of content to be served while the content is refreshed from origin. This maintains performance while keeping a fresh cache.
Soft Purging: This marks content as expired (before the TTL). Using this means that content can be freshened actively while using stale content to users for a fast site.
N.B. More in-depth explanations of these features can be found in Fastly's Documentation.
