Enterprises are migrating applications to the cloud at a rapid pace. But providing instant, secure and reliable access to these web applications can be a challenge. An application delivery controller can help, but selecting the right technology is paramount.
Traditional application delivery controller solutions focus on optimizing infrastructure inside the data center, but that's of little use in addressing the key challenges of cloud-based applications. Some enterprises have established a private application delivery network between the data center and end users, but this is an expensive option and, if users are globally dispersed, an ineffective one as well.
For enterprises that want to provide easier access to cloud-based web applications, Akamai offers a cloud-based application delivery controller that can help reduce costs, increase agility, maximize data security, and improve the productivity of the work force.
Akamai Ion is a cloud-based application delivery controller that lets organizations deliver their web based applications quickly, reliably and securely to any user on any device, anywhere in the world. As an application delivery controller, Ion places application deployment and delivery capabilities within the Akamai Intelligent Platform™, enabling web application delivery optimizations to be distributed globally and placed close to users and data centers throughout the world. With a unique cloud-based network architecture, Akamai's application delivery controller also enables web applications to migrate seamlessly across clouds and data centers, with optimizations moving automatically with the application.
