Global load balancing across multi data center and cloud environments
Global Traffic Management leverages the Akamai Intelligent PlatformTM to apply an Internet-centric approach to global load balancing and real-time failover. Designed to ensure high availability and responsiveness to user requests, Global Traffic Management is a fully fault-tolerant and cloud-based solution — unlike traditional hardware-based solutions that reside within the data center. It makes intelligent routing decisions based on real-time data center performance health and global Internet traffic conditions, ensuring that user requests are delivered via the best possible Internet route for that user, in that moment.
