When a site is deployed, is it pushed straight away to all your edge servers – so that each visitor will always get a fast page load from their nearest edge server?

Or is it stored on a single node, and the edge cache filled on demand, as with a typical CDN (eg Cloudflare) – meaning requests for uncached resources (most requests for a low-trafic site) need to be fetched across the net for many/most visitors?

Maybe this is in your docs or marketing somewhere but I didn't find a clear answer straight off. :-)
