Currently, ESI is not supported with the OOTB CDN (Fastly) on AEM as a Cloud Service. This feature would require a way to disable gzip compression on the parent resources for ESI to work. Some of the challenges can be found in [ 1] for your information.

Regarding SSI, the Apache module 'mod_include' [ 2] is loaded by default and can be used for SSI using SDI (Sling Dynamic Includes), which works on both local SDK and AEM CS. Please see the community article at [ 3] for more information.
