A Peak at the Edge: Akamai Sets New Traffic Benchmar ...

Last week Akamai reached a significant milestone when traffic on our intelligent edge platform exceeded the threshold of 100 Tbps (terabits per second) for the first time in our history, peaking at 106 Tbps. To put that volume of traffic into context, delivering 106 terabits per second is roughly the same as downloading 3,300 two-hour HD movies every second, or nearly 12 million an hour.

Facilitated Route-On: A Better Approach to Hybrid DD ...

Hybrid DDoS has always been an interesting concept. From a vendor perspective, it's not hard to understand the motivations behind it. The vendors pushing hybrid DDoS are the same ones that have been selling DDoS mitigation appliances for years and were late to join the industry-wide shift to cloud. Hybrid DDoS allows them to continue selling their on-premises appliances, while buying time to build out and learn how to operate
