Network Map

Test CDN changes locally so you know what to expect in production.

Safely configure your chosen proxies in your local development environment to provide the maximum performance and security improvements without worrying about issues arising in deployment.

Powered by Vagrant, Docker & Puppet, your local environment will have identical versions of Varnish, ModSecurity, and other proxies you install.

CDN metrics

Graphite Metrics with Grafana Visualization

Get an aggregated view of how your application is performing through Graphite metrics visualized in customizable Grafana charts. Easily look at how many pages you are serving, how much of your content is cached, and Varnish Cache hit rates by asset type. Use flexible alerts for vital metrics to let you know of disruptions. See how section.io real-time metrics make it easy to follow DevOps practices with your Content Delivery solution.

Kibana logs

section.io leverages the power of ElasticSearch and Kibana to give you request/response logs at a granular level, and most logs are available within 10 seconds so that you can troubleshoot in real time. Easily filter requests based on status code, cache hit status, originating IP address and more. Learn more about section.io diagnostics.


Flexible alerts can be set up to tell you when something has gone wrong, so it can immediately be diagnosed and resolved.

CDN configuration that takes hours, not days.

  • Automated, free HTTPS certificates: section.io manages procurement, installation, and renewal of your HTTPS SSL certificate. If you manage multiple domains under your section.io application, we can provide and manage SSL certificates for each individual domain.

  • Hosted DNS: section.io's hosted DNS sets up your application on a network of 24 PoPs across 6 continents.

  • User-friendly interface: GUI configurations for each proxy you set up allow you to select the features you want and update the code in your configuration files.

Other Content Delivery solutions lock up performance and security reverse proxies in a black box. That means you are stuck with the proxies they pick and any changes they make to them. With section.io you choose your preferred proxies and customize the features you need. We'll never modify open-source proxies and always allow you to fully control configurations.
