Salesforce Edge is an update incorporated in the 2023 Major Summer Release. It will be deployed to improve the network experience with accelerated download time and improved content delivery consistency.
Salesforce is deploying Salesforce Edge for Production and Sandbox orgs that use My Domain. This change involves updating the routing settings on the My Domain setup page, enabling auto enablement of the Salesforce Edge Network for your organisation.
What are the Benefits?
Salesforce Edge Network establishes secure connections, reduces connection setup time, and brings Salesforce services closer to the user on trusted infrastructure. This change will make sure that, no matter where you are in the world, your experience with Salesforce will be the same. When you use Salesforce, your requests will be sent to the closest Salesforce location, which means the information will reach you faster. Overall, it will make your experience smoother and more efficient.
The auto enablement is expected to begin in July 2023 and can be opted out if necessary.
Salesforce assures users that following the recommended best practices will minimise any potential impact to their service. For more details and to stay updated, users are encouraged to refer to the Salesforce Edge knowledge article.
