Microsoft today announced general availability of Azure CDN from Akamai, an integration of Akamai's global CDN capabilities into the Microsoft Azure cloud platform that allows Azure users to instantly provision and go live with Akamai CDN within minutes. This follows our initial announcement of the partnership back in September, after which a host of companies have successfully previewed the unified solution.

Are you ready for HTTP/2 Server Push?!

Update: As of February 2017, the latest version of Akamai Ion has introduced an even more powerful capability designed to help customers leverage the server push feature of H/2. Called "Automatic Server Push", and introduced as part of the new set of capabilities known as Adaptive Acceleration, this fully productized feature allows customers to turn on server push capabilities with the simple flick of a configuration switch. Using data from real users, Akamai's Intelligent Platform is able to determine which resources are common across user sessions, and automatically push those resources down to the browser ahead of the user request, resulting in faster time to first byte (TTFB). The specific implementation of server push described in this blog remains in beta, and was a preliminary step towards Akamai building a more intelligent and easier to use automatic server push capability that we continue to refine and build on.

To learn more about Adaptive Acceleration, and the steps for Ion customers to turn on the Automatic Server Push feature, head over to the Web Performance Community.

At Akamai, we are always seeking ways to push the envelope when it comes to adopting new technology and making it readily available for our customers, which is why we were the first CDN to support HTTP/2 on our platform. In our effort to continue to embrace HTTP/2, we are excited to announce the beta for HTTP/2 Server Push capability.

Akamai's next "Girls Who Code" summer immersion program is still a couple of months away, but in the meantime I wanted to tell you about our involvement with another fantastic organization inspiring girls to pursue tech careers - the Girl Scouts.

On February 29th, marine cable cuts in and around Singapore caused significant connectivity issues that now, over a month later, have not been entirely resolved. * This has caused problems for many online businesses that operate in and around the Pacific Rim; however, Akamai customers have had a different experience than everyone else.

HTTP/2 Turns One: Farewell to SPDY

Akamai was the first CDN to support HTTP/2. This blog post is part of an ongoing series where we will discuss a wide range of H2-related topics. In today's post, we are boding a fond farewell to SPDY.

Sports, OTT and the future of live streaming

News broke last week that Twitter had scored the rights to stream 10 NFL games for a reported $10M total. While some are questioning the economics of the deal, it was clear that live streaming of major league sports is a growing opportunity.

Akamai is First to Bring Live 4K to Consumers

While there have been many OTT 4K-related announcements leading up to next week's NAB Show, Akamai has already evolved the live/linear 4K workflow from controlled demonstrations to real-world, public, consumer distribution. In fact, live 4K has the potential to reach the market more quickly online as opposed to traditional methods like satellite, IPTV or cable. That's a pretty big deal.

HTTP/2 is here; come and get it!

Since showcasing a production demonstration of HTTP/2 at Velocity in 2014 and announcing broad support in 2015, Akamai has been actively working with hundreds of customers to deliver HTTP/2-enabled websites.
