Your users are unique and they expect experiences that are fast and personal. In fact, 53% of people abandon a site that takes over 3 seconds to load. You on the other hand, need to provide rich, interactive and dynamic applications to meet those increasing user expectations. This can make the pages heavier and risk user experience.
Built on the SLA-backed bedrock of Akamai’s global cloud delivery platform, Dynamic Site Accelerator provides improved reliability, offload, and network performance over your original web infrastructure, while handling the specific requirements of dynamically generated content — without a costly hardware build-out. Using real-time network optimizations and advanced caching techniques, it speeds and secures interactive websites, helping you scale immediately and easily meet sudden needs like holiday shopping or flash sales.
How does it work?
Reduce IT investment and operating costs
Built on the Akamai Cloud Delivery platform, DSA accelerates the delivery of dynamic content to users worldwide. This increases your scalability and reduces infrastructure expenses.
Real-time Route optimization
DSA analyzes real time data continuously and automatically to select an optimzed path to the origin server by avoiding internet congestion points and outages. This results in the delivery of dynamic content more quickly and reliably to end-users.
Real time monitoring to increase website performance
DSA monitors and analyzes your visitor and site performance data and provides insights to make website improvements. This reduces the time to market for your web applications.
Boost performance by proactively fetching content
By analyzing user behavior data and web sessions, DSA determines which content is required by the application. It then preemptively fetches content from origin and stores it close to the user so it can be assembled and delivered faster, making pages load sooner and eliminating gaps in the user experience.
Site Failover for business continuity
Improve business continuity by directing web content requests to an alternate origin location when there is a failure at the primary origin location. This can be configured across disparate network carriers, cloud providers, or on-premise infrastructure environments.
Secure cloud storage reduces costs and increases availability
Your assets are continuously available by delivering traffic via cloud storage to provide business continuity in the event of a datacenter outage or other infrastructure failure.
Deliver content using fastest internet routes
DSA leverages the Akamai Cloud Delivery Platform to optimize Internet routes to the origin so that dynamic content is delivered to your users via the fastest, most reliable routes.
Cloud based storage solution
DSA offers an optimized storage solution by providing secure, replicated cloud-based storage that reduces the burden and costs associated with storing content in a reliable manner
Offload authentication to increase performance
Increase performance by moving authentication functionality to the Akamai Cloud Delivery Platform rather than requiring these decisions to be made through interaction with your origin infrastructure
Deliver websites using IPv6
With DSA you can continue to deliver your websites using IPv6, even when your infrastructure has not been upgraded from the legacy IPv4 standard
Customize your content to individual users
DSA accurately identifies your users geographic location, network type and network condition so that content can be targeted in real time for each user.
