Working out of the box: Web GUI is provided for easy configuration. No programming needed. No need to learn nginx.conf or Lua programming. 0 learning costs and 0 barriers to entry for common operations.
Advanced enterprise level features: WAF, DNS, rate limiting, real-time traffic and error log analytics, dynamic proxying, load balancing -- all included.
Higher performance: Commercial products use the highly optimized OpenResty+ platform with deep performance optimizations based on the open source OpenResty stack.
Near real-time reconfiguration: Built-in hot reconfiguration mechanism ensures that global deployment and rollback can be done in just a few seconds.
The commercial products provide Web forms for creating custom rules with a rich set of predefined conditions and actions.
Edge Language can be used to convey the most complex business logic and a web IDE is provided to enter Edge language rules with ease.
When you don't want to learn or use the Edge language, we can also help you prepare Edge Language rules for complicated requirements.
Advanced users can extend the Edge language by calling any external Lua code or C libraries from within the Edge source code in privileged mode.
We are always listening! If you have special requirements that cannot be fulfilled in the current platform, feel free to send us your feature requests. We are happy to consider integrating them into our products.
30 day free evaluation is available for enterprise users. No free trial is provided for personal users at the moment.
Free trial customers can deploy the Edge Node software on their own machines. the Edge Admin software is still hosted and managed by OpenResty Inc., however. Paid customers can deploy their own instances of Edge Admin.

It is required to sign the formal free evaluation agreement with OpenResty Inc. or its subsidiaries on the company level before the free trial can begin.
All paid OpenResty Edge 2 customers will receive free bug fixes, performance optimizations, new features and security fixes for the current major version throughout the contract period.
We distribute binary package repositories for common Linux distributions, such as YUM and Apt repositories. Updating OpenResty Edge 2 is no different from updating any other packages on the operating system. We are also happy to consider other kinds of operating systems.
Existing customers will receive discounts when new major version is released in the future, like OpenResty Edge 3.
We have deployed a global scale CDN network on AliCloud and DigitalOcean for content acceleration and security protection of our own web sites, like openresty.org and openresty.com.
We always verify any new features, optimizations, and bug fixes first in our own global CDN network.
The previous generation of our product, OpenResty Edge 1, has been deployed in a big CDN company's edge networks, serving several Tbps of real Internet traffic. OpenResty Edge 1 is now discontinued and no longer available.
