Akamai Download Manager is an intelligent, resilient platform for delivering applications, data and media downloads over Akamai’s global content delivery network (CDN). As part of an overall Akamai solution, Download Manager can accelerate online media and software downloads up to ten-fold, while providing advanced control and error handling to improve application, data and media download completion rates.
Download Manager works at the edge of the Internet. It's powered by the scale and depth of Akamai's global CDN server platform, working with Akamai's NetSession Interface client software residing on end-user machines and devices. NetSession Interface is designed to be a low-impact, low-demand client, with minimal impact on client CPU, disk, and RAM resources.
Customers incorporating Download Manager have seen a 5%-20% increase in download completion rates, and have the option to leverage Akamai professional services expertise to create more efficient download workflows to realize even greater improvements in completion rates.
Per-user pricing means greater flexibility to tailor Download Manager to your particular business model over traditional models (pay per GB, pay per Mbps) to control costs and maximize value.
