Getting Started with Edge Delivery Services - Documentation




Getting Started with Edge Delivery Services

Edge Delivery Services is a composable set of services that enables a rapid development environment where authors can update and publish quickly, and new sites are launched rapidly. As such, with Edge Delivery Services you can improve conversion, reduce costs, and provide extreme content velocity.

Benefits of using Edge Delivery Services

  • Create fast sites: Edge Delivery Services can help you create fast sites with a perfect Lighthouse Score and continuously monitor your site performance through real user monitoring (RUM).
  • Increase authoring efficiency: Edge Delivery Services decouples content sources, allowing you to use both AEM authoring and document-based authoring. This means you can work with multiple content sources on the same website.
  • Use a built-in experimentation framework: Edge Delivery Services includes a built-in experimentation framework that allows you to quickly create tests, execute them without performance impact, and quickly release the winning test to production.

How Edge Delivery Services works

Edge Delivery Services works by leveraging a global network of edge servers to deliver content to users as close to them as possible. This reduces latency and improves performance.

Edge Delivery Services also includes a number of features that can help you improve your website's performance, such as:

  • Image optimization: Edge Delivery Services automatically optimizes images for web delivery, which can reduce their size and improve loading times.
  • Caching: Edge Delivery Services caches static content so that it can be delivered to users without having to retrieve it from the origin server each time.
  • Content delivery network (CDN): Edge Delivery Services uses a CDN to deliver content to users from the edge server nearest to them. This reduces latency and improves performance.

HI @kautuk_sahni :

Can you highlight, what is the tech stack for Edge delivery Services. < Will it come as part of AEM or separate license. >

If we use document authoring with Edge delivery Services, where we need to mention the edge service end point in Document based authoring level.
