Akamai IO - The Akamai Internet Observatory

Possibly the best part of working on Web performance is the community. It always amazes me how users, vendors, and even competitors work together to make the Web faster. Akamai does its best to support this community, through actions like sponsoring Web performance meetups and open-sourcing tools like Mobitest.

TV Everywhere Sees Renewed Vigor in Time for NAB 201 ...

One year ago, at NAB 2011, TV Everywhere was talked about... well... everywhere. Operators and programmers were racing to secure their strategies to stay relevant in the Media 3.0 world and take advantage of new business models; and after enjoying a few years of vigorous discussion, months went by with stalled progress, leaving many to wonder what happened. Operators want to bundle content to their throngs of paying subscribers, and

The Performance Arms Race Continues in Financial Ser ...

Since joining Akamai just over 2 years ago I have had the privilege to meet with Financial Services Institutions (FSIs) around the world and hear firsthand about their opportunities and challenges.  It never ceases to amaze me how performance continues to play such a critical role in this industry, and how passionate and competitive people are about this.  This passion exists firm-wide in many cases, and at the individual level.

State of the Internet in Q3 2011: Observations on At ...

To say that Web-based security attacks are on the rise would be an understatement. Consider this: in just the past three years, we've seen an eye-popping 2,000% increase in the number of DDoS attack incidents investigated on behalf of our customers.  And while those DDoS numbers are not currently part of Akamai's State of the Internet report (Q3 2011 edition released today at  http://www.akamai.com/stateoftheinternet/), the attack traffic that we monitor
