Next in the process, you need to create your Cloud Wrapper configuration, to determine how to use its capacity as your cache.
You need to meet some prerequisites before you get started.
You need a compatible delivery product. You need a delivery configuration ("property") set up and actively delivering content. See the guidelines for optimizing your property.
Your contract needs capacity. After you determined your requirements, your account team should have set up Cloud Wrapper locations and capacity on your Akamai contract. You should have also set up the property that's delivering your content on that same contract. Verify this contract has capacity inventory.
Web and media products can't use the same footprint
If you configure a footprint and then add it to an Ion or Dynamic Site Acceleration (web) property, you can't use the same footprint with Adaptive Media Delivery, Download Delivery, or Object Delivery (media) properties.
To add a new configuration, follow these steps:
Go to ☰ > ORIGIN SERVICES > Cloud Wrapper.
Select the Configurations entity.
Click Add Configuration.
Set options in each window of the wizard:
Define some basics for your configuration.
Give your configuration a unique name to differentiate it.
Optionally add notes to help identify the configuration during later use.
Select the Cloud Wrapper contract you're assigning this configuration to.
Select the delivery configurations ("properties") to include in the Cloud Wrapper configuration. The list of available properties are associated with your Cloud Wrapper contracts. Contact your account team if the properties you expect to see aren't listed. You can pre-populate many of these fields by creating a configuration from an analysis report.
Enable this to be alerted when your quota usage passes your configured threshold. You set this threshold with your Akamai account team when setting up your Cloud Wrapper instance. Emails are sent to the address you've set for your Control Center user.
Define the locations to distribute your Cloud Wrapper capacity:
Select a geographic region to use. Depending on your workflow, decide if you want it closer to the origin server where you store your content, or to the clients that are requesting it.
Set this based on the type of content you'll be delivering through this cache:
Set the amount of cache space to allocate for the Location you selected.
Include any additional information to help you identify the purpose of this configuration.
Enable and customize third-party content delivery network (CDN) access to Cloud Wrapper.
Multi-CDN support is currently only offered with Akamai's Adaptive Media Delivery, Download Delivery, and Object Delivery products.
Set Enable Multi CDN to On.
Select the Properties associated with your contract to include in this configuration.
Click Extract Origin Details to extract Origin settings associated with your selected properties.
You can assign an Origin ID to help identify it later.
Click Add CDN. The Add CDN window launches.
Select the CDN provider that you currently use.
Enable Header Based Auth
Enable this to use Simple Header authentication. Later, you'll use the Secret
Rotate a key before expiration
You need to create a new auth key prior to key expiration, then delete the old auth key.
Enable IP ACL
Enable this to specify a list of IP addresses that your CDN generates requests from. Cloud Wrapper will restrict access to only these IP addresses. IP ACL is not a substitute for authentication. To further enhance your origin security, use them in combination with authentication methods such as authentication tokens.
Prevent denial of traffic
Consider these points:
Enable this to only accept HTTPS connections. Both HTTP & HTTPS connections are accepted when disabled.
- Review Multi CDN tasks for additional processes you need to complete to set up this support.
View your summarized configuration:
Assign email addresses to be notified about the status of your configuration.
Decide if you want to Activate now, or Activate Later.
You can edit an existing configuration as necessary, but it can't be activated.
