Overview
Akamai Technologies, Inc. is a content delivery network or CDN and cloud services provider headquartered in Cambridge, Massachusetts, in the United States. Akamai's content delivery network is one of the world's largest distributed computing platforms, responsible for serving between 15 and 30 percent of all web traffic. The company operates a network of servers around the world and rents capacity on these servers to customers who want their websites to work faster by distributing content from locations close to the user. Over the years their customers have included Apple, Facebook, Bing, Twitter and healthcare.gov. When a user navigates to the URL of an Akamai customer, their browser is redirected to one of Akamai's copies of this website, almost entirely invisible to the vast majority of its users.
WSO2 is an open source application development software company focused on providing service-oriented architecture solutions for professional developers. Coming quickly after an investment in Collax, an open source Linux server provider, Intel Capital has invested $4 million into WSO2, a global corporation with offices located in USA, UK and Sri Lanka. WSO2 was founded by Dr. Sanjiva Weerawarana and Paul Fremantle in August, 2005.
