Cloud-based application delivery platform for web applications hosted anywhere

Alta is a cloud-based application delivery platform designed to enable enterprises to deliver all of their web-based applications in a fast, reliable, secure, and cost-effective way to any user on any device, anywhere in the world. Alta empowers enterprises to overcome the challenges related to delivering their applications over the Internet by placing all of the application delivery capabilities within the Akamai Intelligent Platform™, which means the optimizations are distributed globally and located closer to users and data centers, wherever they are. Akamai's unique cloud-based architecture also means that applications can be seamlessly migrated across data centers or clouds at will, and the application delivery optimizations will automatically move with the application.
