Running APIs at the Edge – A Cheatsheet from Lessons Learned the Hard Way

Edge compute is the new hotness. Running your APIs at the edge offers a lot of advantages for API developers with your compute being close to your customers (usually within 50ms of anybody on the planet). However, this new paradigm of massive distribution comes with a set of architectural challenges that have to be learned the hard way. Join Josh where he’ll share their experience and best practices from building and running Zuplo (an API edge gateway). Don’t worry, this isn’t a promo for Zuplo – Rather we will dive deep into how we designed a system for the edge that can scale to trillions of requests and solve problems like distributed rate-limiting (across 250+ datacenters), and low latency security policies with centralized management.
