Akamai Connected Cloud Announced


The global initiative includes adding new core and distributed computing sites.

Akamai has announced Akamai Connected Cloud, a "massively distributed edge and cloud platform for cloud computing, security, and content delivery.”

The new initiative, which includes development and deployment capabilities stemming from the acquisition of Linode, represents "the culmination of our strategy to build the cloud platform for today and for the future," according to Adam Karon, COO and General Manager of Akamai’s Cloud Technology Group.

Features include:

  • Three new core cloud computing sites in the U.S. and Europe
  • Fifty planned distributed sites
  • New ISO, SOC 2, and HIPAA standards compliance
  • Aggressive pricing

"Akamai Connected Cloud is a continuum of compute from core to edge, paired with our security, CDN, and 24/7/365 support. This will enable you to more efficiently build, deploy, and secure performant workloads that require single-digit millisecond latency and global reach," Karon says.
