Our current redirect solution is a bit of a mess, but it works, all done with Apache and map files. We have thousands of redirects.
We're evaluating Edge Redirector but so far I haven't found any big benefits over using our current solution.
Typically we redirect a language subdomain to a path in our CMS (this is simple to do in Apache)
For example: it.mydomain.com/foo --> www.mydomain.com/it/bar
But to recreate this in Edge Redirector I have to setup at least 3 rules (1 to catch 'www', one to catch several language codes and one to catch a specific language code which does something different). And doing all this in the Luna control panel is a bit of a pain. These rules also cross various Akamai properties so I will have duplicates in some areas.
Now I'm wondering I I could leverage the API and create a simple web app on our end where a user would simple enter a TO and FROM url with some simple rule directives and I could apply the necessary logic on the backend and add the appropriate rules via the API?? Is anyone doing anything like this currently?
