AEM and Akamai Integration


Akamai is a CDN (Content Delivery Network) that has servers all over the world, delivering the content of a website and caching that part of the content that doesn’t need to be constantly updated.
Beyond AEM, as CDN, among Akamai’s pros we can find some remarkable points:
  • Faster delivering content:  Is not the same that an user access to the website servers than could access to Akamai. In Akamai the content is available in closer servers and cached.
  • Better balancing of the content: apply an Internet-centric approach to global load balancing and real-time fail-over. Designed to ensure high availability and responsiveness to user requests.
  • Safety: put another wall between the user and your website.
  • Improve user experience: Due to previous points the user has a better experience when requests content.
