Blog Post created by Dhwani Dagli Employee on Oct 8, 2015

Hi Everyone,


The Akamai Edge Customer Conference 2015 is fast approaching and we have so many great sessions planned for this year! I am thrilled to have the opportunity to not only be there for the very first time but also present at the Edge Leverage Akamai Better (LAB) sessions.


In news or on social media, we often hear stories about websites and mobile apps performing sub-optimally during peak sale season or large streaming events. The root causes range from systems design, network issues, overwhelming flash crowds or compromised security. In our session on 'Improving Performance, Scale and Security: Case Studies and Lessons Learned’ Eugene Zhang and I will discuss some of those cases in detail. We will review their causes, examine best practices for design, contingency planning, and testing. We will also discuss how Akamai can help in improving performance, scale and security for your websites.


We will be presenting at the two times below. Please come with all your questions!


  • Edge Day 2: Thursday, October 22 : 11:20am-12:00pm
  • Edge Day 3: Friday, October 23 : 10:40am-11:20am


We will also be at the Expert Bar where we will be answering all your questions regarding Web Performance, Media Delivery, Cloud Security, etc. You may book a spot at the Expert Bar in advance via registration, email edge-expert-bar@akamai.com for an appointment, or belly-up to the bar during the event.

We look forward to seeing you there!
