Fastly is live in Minneapolis at MICE!
Deploying thousands of small, scattered points of presence (POPs) may have worked for legacy CDNs in the dial-up era, but the internet has become increasingly dynamic, and spinning disks no longer get the job done.

I was expecting a completely green matrix, one that showed flawless connectivity between the major cloud providers, but then something else happened (see matrix below).
