CAMBRIDGE, Mass., June 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, is
showcasing its cloud delivery and optimization expertise at Cloud Expo NY 2013
which will be held at New York's Javit's Center, June 10-13, 2013. Through a

Terra Alta is a cloud-based application delivery platform designed to improve
enterprise agility and collaboration by offering the power to instantly
configure and deliver all web-based applications, to any users, anywhere in
the world. The solution also can help overcome the inherent challenges related
to performance, availability, scalability and security, which cannot be
accomplished by deploying specialized hardware within the data center.
Further, Terra Alta is designed to mitigate new application delivery
challenges introduced by the rapid migration and movement of applications
across cloud computing platforms, the diversity of mobile device types and
networks, and the need for real-time aggregation of data sources.
Terra Alta "Cloud Balancing" Demonstrations
Throughout Cloud Expo NY 2013, Akamai will host live demonstrations showcasing
Terra Alta's "cloud balancing" capability, which is useful in situations where
outages, network conditions or other circumstances may negatively impact
application delivery. The solution can recognize that application delivery is
suffering and, in near-real-time, direct requests to those data centers not
impacted. Attendees can see this capability firsthand as demonstrations will
show how Terra Alta can help overcome the complexity of maintaining
application availability when hosting assets within multiple cloud
environments – including enterprise data centers – by prioritizing from which
cloud provider and/or data center applications should be delivered and helping
to ensure all relevant performance optimizations are instantly made available
regardless of hosting location.
During the course of the event, Akamai experts will be on hand to discuss
strategies and best practices for improving the performance and optimization
of enterprise applications delivered via the cloud.
According to Neil Cohen, vice president of Product Marketing, Akamai and a
featured presenter at Cloud Expo NY 2013, "Application delivery requirements
are changing in the cloud era. Our customers expect rapid, seamless movement
of applications across cloud computing platforms. As such, Akamai's Terra Alta
performance optimizations can be instantly applied to any cloud platform along
with the emerging requirements for balancing across multi-cloud environments
and are designed to ensure highly available enterprise cloud deployments and
even more agility from the cloud."
