Product Report: Akamai Intelligent Platform - 70874

Report Details

Akamai is a software platform, originally built on Linux, and able to run on commodity hardware. According to Akamai’s own metrics, at any one time between 15% and 30% of web traffic is going between Akamai servers. It is not a separate network, running as it does over the Internet using the same backend connections, but it is resilient, and lessens traffic between Internet nodes.

The distributed nature of Akamai depends on having a number of datacenters and partners to install their software in key areas of the Internet, Internet Service Providers (ISPs) and Telecoms environments in particular.
