Akamai, one of the global leaders in Content Delivery Networks and Web Optimization services, and Microsoft Corp., one of the global IT leaders, announced that they had collaborated for fully integrating Akamai’s CDN into Microsoft Azure Cloud platform to optimize the delivery of content as well as ensuring faster deployment of applications in Azure cloud.
The collaboration will allow Microsoft’s enterprise customers to buy Akamai’s offerings from Azure Portal’s “self-select” option itself and ensure that they get support from both Microsoft as well as Akamai. The Companies mentioned that a bunch of targeted enterprises will be able to check Microsoft first-party services for CDN, acceleration and security based on Akamai from November 2015, and the option will be rolled-out to all the customers by early 2016.
