New cloud computing applications
Together with the efficient platform of Akamai Connected Cloud, they have announced new strategic cloud computing services so developers can build and protect high-performance workloads while maintaining a permanent Internet connection.
New enterprise-scale cloud computing core centers: They are being built in Europe and the United States, and like the rest of the eleven cloud computing centers that Akamai already had, the new ones will be connected to its backbone network, the world’s most distributed edge network. They are expected to be fully operational from the second quarter of 2023.
In the same way, they will include all the services acquired through Linode, absorbed in 2022 by Akamai.
