Akamai Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: AKAM), the world's largest and most trusted cloud delivery platform, and IBM (NYSE: IBM) has announced that Akamai Content Delivery Network (CDN) capabilities are now available on the IBM Cloud, the company said.

The new offering is part of the IBM Cloud Content Delivery Network and is designed to optimize the performance of content and applications deployed and delivered via the cloud.

Enterprises in industries ranging from ecommerce to finance to media need to deliver valuable content such as video, web content and mobile apps quickly and reliably to end users, especially in times of peak demand. To meet this need, Akamai and IBM have come together to provide a new content delivery network service that can be configured and deployed in the IBM Cloud.

To help increase delivery speed and performance, the new service combines Akamai's presence in nearly 1,700 networks in 131 countries with IBM's global cloud footprint of nearly 60 cloud data centers across 19 countries. This expanded footprint enables storage of content at the edge of the network, positioning users for faster and more consistent delivery of web content, media and applications to end users.

Akamai makes it easier for its customers to provide the best and most secure digital experiences on any device, anytime, anywhere. Visit www.akamai.com, blogs.akamai.com, or @Akamai on Twitter.
