Capacity Reservation

Capacity Reservation allows you to reserve Fastly traffic capacity for events based on data bandwidth (in gigabits per second), duration, and type of delivery (Media Shield for VOD, Media Shield for Live, Fastly Streaming Delivery, or Fastly Full Site Delivery). You are required to purchase capacity reservations any time you're expecting a utilization spike from your planned events. When purchasing capacity reservations for your events, you are also required to purchase Fastly's Live Event Monitoring service for the duration of the event. To learn more, contact
