Challenges & Solutions

Challenges

  • Existing CDNs provide very basic edge frameworks like WASM / JS workers or VMs with limited feature sets
  • Managing large numbers of individual app clusters (VM- or container-based) is an operational nightmare
  • Security of distributed apps, secrets and keys requires significant engineering and additional services at edge locations
  • Differences in SDLC, CI/CD and tooling across the network edge and cloud increases burden on developers and DevOps

Solutions

  • VoltStack delivers a rich set of platform services to run any app without the need to provision or manage K8s resources
  • Our control plane removes the need to manage individual clusters by enforcing your intent across our global network
  • VoltStack delivers identity, secrets and KMS services to protect your apps + data, as well as secure access to your core cloud
  • Integration of VoltStack with traditional SDLC or modern GitOps tools reduces the learning curve for developers and DevOps

Solution Overview

Volterra’s global application delivery network enables you to extend cloud resources closer to your end users and deliver apps with improved performance. The Volterra network and its points of presence (PoPs) leverage VoltStack and VoltMesh to provide a full-featured app platform that seamlessly integrates with your existing SDLC and CI/CD tools.

VoltStack delivers a verifiable identity to every app, along with the ability to secure associated data and secrets. VoltMesh provides advanced security and DDoS mitigation to protect against L4-L7+ attacks.
