Session Title: Simplifying Your Life with Akamai


Speakers: Rory Hewitt and Saili Shaha





You've always used Akamai for your caching needs. Then maybe you added WAF, or FEO. Then FastDNS. In this session, you'll learn about some techniques you can use to make life simpler for your development teams by performing processing directly in Akamai, reducing the amount of work your teams need to do; and, more importantly, reducing the amount of stuff that your teams need to UNDERSTAND.


  1. Handling CORS directly in Akamai - no need for your developers to figure out this often-misunderstood web standard
  2. Serving failover pages from Akamai
  3. Using the Edge Redirector cloudlet to reduce server load
  4. Sending constructed responses directly from Akamai
  5. FEO - let us do your JavaScript minification for you!
