Akamai delivers like 20% of all internet traffic.

5 minutes explaining what it is they do.

  • differences between last & first mile of HTTP delivery, versus “the middle mile”
  • TCP is a really chatty technology
  • edge servers
  • bottlenecks
  • optimal delivery path in terms of time, not hops

The last bit is a sales pitch; minutes 1–3 are more worth watching than 0–1 or 3+.
