Case Studies

Akamai Cloudlets

Cloudlets are small, discrete modules of functionality designed to bring chunks of logic out of origin and to the Edge - closer to the end user - created to meet two of Akamai’s company goals: Pushing more power to the Edge, and early proof our then-new commitment to the self-serviceability of our tools. Almost six years later they are still a core part of Akamai's Edge strategy, around which the whole performance arm of the company has now pivoted.
