Fastly and Jet-Stream announce partnership
Last updated: 9 November 2023
Amsterdam, November 9, 2023 – In a time when the streaming industry is experiencing rapid changes and shifting landscapes, Jet-Stream, Europe’s leading cloud streaming service provider, announces a partnership with Fastly, a leader in global edge cloud platforms. This alignment is destined to set new benchmarks in streaming performance, reliability, and global reach.
Recent times have witnessed significant turbulence in the streaming sector, with numerous vendors grappling with formidable challenges or making the difficult decision to discontinue their services. Notable names like Microsoft Azure Media Services, StackPath CDN, and Lumen CDN have recently faced such changes, and the industry anticipates more players to follow suit by selling their businesses, consolidating, divesting services, or, in some cases, shutting down completely.
In light of these challenges, Jet-Stream’s decision to partner with Fastly comes as a forward-looking move to ensure seamless and high-quality streaming solutions for its customers.
“We’ve been working on a partnership with the Fastly team in the past months. Following the recent loss of StackPath CDN in our Multi CDN mix, we welcome the onboarding of this robust and reliable partner,” commented Jet-Stream’s CEO Stef van der Ziel. “Our aim has always been to provide a premium solution to our clients, and by bringing Fastly into our mix, we’re further solidifying our commitment.”

This partnership offers Jet-Stream’s customers the advantage of integrating one of the industry’s most premium CDN solutions as a standard option.
