How to Accelerate Non-cacheable, Dynamic Sites Leveraging a Globally Distributed Platform

Harald Prokop (Akamai Technologies)–Since 1999, Akamai has built a large-scale distributed system with 30,000+ servers spread across 1000+ networks and 70+ countries. Akamai’s technology-at its core, applied mathematics and algorithms-manages the distribution of large content libraries and intelligently optimizes routes to accelerate dynamic sites and applications. This talk will focus on the design principles and architecture of the Akamai network and how it enables the Internet to deliver large libraries of HD content and accelerates dynamic transactions.
