Redirecting On the Edge

On the web, every second counts. Service engineers and operations teams are looking for ways to save milliseconds from web pages' load times. One of the simpler ways to squeeze better performance from web pages already using a Content Delivery Network (CDN) is to move the redirection responses from origin to the edge. A simple and common example of redirects could be to upgrade the protocol used from HTTP to HTTPS. Another example could be to redirect to a locale-specific path. By using Akamai's Edge Redirector Cloudlet, customers can consolidate redirects that are being made through multiple layers in the technology stack to a single location on the edge.
