Fast Technologies launched a new platform for scalable and reliable file hosting. It is targeting designers, developers, and marketers for a solution to automate everything needed to host and track files.
The Fast.io platform is created to simplify and automate the steps required to add, manage, update, deploy, and analyze static assets directly on content delivery networks (CDNs) like Akamai, Fastly, and Cloudflare. The platform aims to be a solution for designers, developers, and marketers who want to automate everything needed to host files and static websites.

Integrated CDN and cloud storage services
It integrates with existing workflows and cloud storage services like Google Drive, Dropbox, OneDrive, MediaFire, Box, and GitHub to manage files. In addition to this, it includes an integrated CDN that uses Cloudflare and Akamai for lightning-fast global deploys, a visual dashboard, and detailed, accurate analytics data sent to Google Analytics and Mixpanel. Also, it provides a flexible reporting platform that integrates with your existing tools, like Google Analytics.
Three steps of fast.io
First, it synchronizes files from your Cloud Storage or Version Control System into fast.io’s cloud.
Following this, it pushes data from customer’s Cloud Storage to its global Content Delivery Networks (Cloudflare and Akamai), reports Analytics.
Finally, it simplifies analytics data using Google Analytics or Mixpanel regardless of ad blockers, web browsers, or app integrations.
Fast Technologies’ brand Fast.io was founded by Derek Labian and Tom Langridge, who also co-founded MediaFire that serves consumer cloud storage and file sharing.
“The process of deploying static content today is complicated and time-consuming. Solutions like S3 require manual uploading, a separate CDN configuration, a manual review of raw data logs, and tedious cache flushing each time an update is made,”
said Tom Langridge, co-founder of Fast.Io and MediaFire. “We want to get content online quickly with the simplicity and ease of use of cloud storage without sacrificing the reliable scalability and performance of a CDN,” he added.
