CAMBRIDGE, Mass., March 5, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --Akamai^® Technologies, Inc.
(NASDAQ: AKAM), the leading cloud platform for helping enterprises provide
secure, high-performing user experiences on any device, anywhere, announced
today that eLynx Technologies, a leading provider of web-based monitoring,
exception based alarming, and field automation services for the oil and gas
industry is using Akamai Terra Enterprise Solutions to provide performance
optimization for the company's SCADALynx^™ technology.

Delivered to customers as a SaaS offering, SCADALynx is designed to offer
intelligent automation for organizations in the oil and gas production
industry. According to eLynx, SCADALynx, provides the ability to monitor – in
real time – various aspects of the drilling and production process including
flow computers, compressors, pipelines, tanks and artificial lift devices, to
name only a few. As important, eLynx notes that SCADALynx also provides the
capability to remotely implement changes and make adjustments to the
production environment based on the data provided by the system.

According to Ryan McDonald, director of IT at eLynx, consistent, predictable
application performance is of paramount concern to the company and its
customers. The ability to provide that level of customer experience was key to
its decision to implement Terra Enterprise Solutions for cloud optimization.

"In the oil and gas industry the speed at which you receive data and the
ability to act quickly on that data not only impacts productivity and
profitability, but perhaps also safety," explained McDonald. "Pairing our SaaS
offering with Akamai solutions helps to ensure that potential problems with
the Internet do not become problems for the delivery of our applications. Our
customers get the information they need, when they need it and are able to
take timely, appropriate actions to benefit their business."

McDonald asserts that implementing Terra Enterprise Solutions in conjunction
with SCADALynx has helped customers receive an average response time of less
than one second from the application.

"For companies, the multiple benefits of SaaS adoption can be tempered by
inconsistent performance associated with using the Internet as an application
delivery platform," stated Mike Afergan, senior vice president and general
manager, Web Experience Business Unit, Akamai. "For companies like eLynx,
Akamai's Terra Enterprise Solutions are designed to eliminate this concern and
help SaaS applications behave as if they were delivered on a dedicated WAN,
therefore providing an exceptional user experience."
