Get started

Full Stack Experimentation at the edge is a set of templates and starter kits to implement feature flagging and experimentation across major serverless edge compute platforms.

Modern content delivery networks (CDNs) and cloud platforms offer flexible and robust serverless edge computing capabilities that provide a natural environment for executing performant and influential experiments.

To optimize decision performance and bundle size with these CDNs, Optimizely has extended and embedded our Javascript SDK into several edge computing providers.

Use cases

The Optimizely Edge SDKs enable users to implement feature flagging and experimentation within the most popular serverless edge services, allowing new use cases and improved performance. Edge functions are best suited for small but impactful user-specific calculations where speed is essential. For example,

  • Localization
  • Dynamic advertisement targeting
  • Content stitching
  • Authentication

Choosing between Optimizely Full Stack Experimentation at the edge and Optimizely Performance Edge

Full Stack Experimentation at the edge is a set of SDKs for running experiments on popular serverless edge computing platforms. This documentation provides instructions and examples of these SDKs.

This differs from Optimizely Performance Edge. Performance Edge is a faster way to deliver client-side Optimizely Web experiments that utilizes the structure of CDNs to deliver experiments to visitors faster by downloading a microsnippet. For more information on Performance Edge, select it from the Products dropdowns above, or click on the link.
