Integrated CDN Free for All Pantheon Sites
At Pantheon, we pride ourselves on making sure the fastest sites on the internet are powered by our website management platform. After years of building, fine-tuning, and scaling our own edge caching layer, we realized there was more we could do to improve performance and security for our users. All sites on Pantheon are now powered by our Global CDN thanks to a partnership with Fastly’s edge cloud platform—for free.
Instant Performance Boost
Unlike most CDNs that only handle images and other supporting static assets, Pantheon’s Global CDN technology lets you cache the entire page at the edge. This puts sub-second pageloads within reach for any site on the platform.

We saw a 70% performance boost in page load time for our client’s site when we started taking advantage of Pantheon’s new CDN capabilities.
Global Reach for Your Sites
Over 60 strategic points of presence (POPs) spanning across the globe (and growing) ensure your content is delivered as quickly and close to users as possible, because you can’t beat the speed of light. Our testing shows that adding Global CDN capabilities can cut page load times in half for users within the US, and speed up page rendering time more than 10 times for user's browsing from across an ocean.
Integrated and Preconfigured
Pantheon’s Global CDN is activated for all sites on Pantheon at no extra cost when you point your DNS to us. No setup, no special site modifications, no constant tinkering, just confidence that your site is running at light-speed across the globe.
We surveyed sites hosted on Pantheon to measure performance gains after moving to our Global CDN. On average, our network saw a 1.15 second performance increase for their sites instantly.
