How Cloudlets work

This is how requests are served with Cloudlets enabled:

  1. A customer makes a request for content.

  2. The optimal edge server receives an inbound request.

  3. The edge server determines which Cloudlet should handle the request.

  4. The edge server fetches the policies for the given Cloudlet.

  5. The edge server processes metadata logic, generates a response, and sends it to the customer.
