Special Service Guide Update for May 7, 2018
On June 19th the Fastly API and control panel will require TLS 1.2. Due to the PCI Security Standards Council mandate, TLS versions 1.0 and 1.1 will no longer be supported for accessing Fastly's API and web interface.
Special Service Guide Update for April 24, 2018
The European Union (EU) will soon mandate changes that strengthen and standardize data protection and privacy of all EU individuals as part of General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) 2016/679. The GDPR specifically addresses the obligations organizations have related to the processing of EU residents’ personal data, regardless of where those organizations are located. As part of Fastly’s commitment to privacy, we’ve made changes to key service guides in advance of the May 25, 2018 effective date.
We’ve also added warnings in some of our VCL documentation reminding customers that VCL, like any other code source, is an impractical place to store personal information given various privacy requirements, especially under the GDPR. Likewise, we’ve added a reminder in our Real-Time Log Streaming features that customers should take into account security, privacy, and compliance considerations when logging data.

Special Service Guide Update for October 17, 2017
As of today, our Invitation API endpoint has been deprecated. It will be formally retired on January 22, 2018. Our new Invitations API endpoint becomes generally available today. It offers the same functionality as the deprecated Invitation endpoint and specifically adds support for bulk invitation operations as well as the ability to create invitations granting engineers limited service permissions.
Special Service Guide Update for June 22, 2017
Special Service Guide Update for December 5, 2016
We recently updated our guide describing how we calculate your bill.
Beginning on and continuing after February 1, 2017, Fastly will use The International System of Units (SI Units) to measure bandwidth. In our calculations, 1 gigabyte (GB) = 109 (1,000,000,000) bytes, 1 terabyte (TB) = 1012 bytes (or 1,000 GB), and 1 petabyte (PB) = 1015 bytes (or 1,000 TB). This change will align our customers' invoice usage with the usage shown on the Stats page. At this point, Fastly will begin measuring and charging for bandwidth related to HTTP requests to our customers' origins from the CDN.
Through January 31, 2017, Fastly will continue to use the IEC prefixes for binary powers, starting with 1 gibibyte (GiB) = 230 (1,073,741,824) bytes and will not charge for bandwidth related to HTTP requests to our customers' origins from the CDN.
