Visualizing Global Internet Performance

Akamai's data visualizations display the world's online behavior at any given moment

Akamai’s CDN platform delivers 15-30% of the world's web traffic. We combine this global scope with constant data collection to construct a picture of what's happening on the Internet. How fast is data moving? Where's the most web traffic congestion? What events are causing spikes in web activity? Previously, only Akamai and our customers had access to this information. Now we're opening that window into the online universe.

Visualizing the Internet

  • Continually updated visualizations provide a picture of global web traffic, viruses/attacks, the speed of data moving between major cities and the volume of data and users on the Akamai platform.

  • Internet Observatory

    Akamai IO is a portal for sharing continuous data from the traffic Akamai sees with the community. Akamai delivers roughly 2 trillion content requests a day, spanning websites from practically every industry and geography.
