Content Delivery Network
More power for websites
The Open Telekom Cloud allows the use and cost-effective booking of the content delivery network (CDN) from Akamai. Websites are connected to the CDN. This creates a buffer between the actual website and the user. This is because the DNS entry does not refer to the original page, but to the buffered copies of the website in the CDN nodes. This allows the performance and availability of the website to be increased easily. This option is particularly recommended for websites with ambitious content, such as videos, games or multimedia.
Akamai's Content Delivery Network provides a service called Cloud Connect on the Open Telekom Cloud. Cloud Connect combines two services: Perform and Protect. Perform increases the performance and availability of websites and applications on the Internet. The global reach of content increases. Content and services are made available more quickly to website users. From a technical point of view, latency and packet loss rate are reduced during transmission. Akamai uses its global network of servers to bring content and applications closer to the local user. The user experience is increasing.
Protect protects the resources on the website against attacks from the Internet. Kona Site Defender is a web application firewall that detects DDoS and Direct-to-Origin attacks and attacks on web applications at an early stage and initiates countermeasures. This provides effective protection for the original website. The order for Cloud Connect is integrated into the Open Telekom Cloud. Users will receive additional sales support for the Akamai offering upon request.
