Global Traffic Management (GTM) is designed to enable Internet users to access their websites or any other IP application quickly and reliably.

Unlike traditional hardware-based solutions that reside within the data center, Akamai's GTM service is a fault-tolerant solution that makes intelligent routing decisions based on real-time data center performance health and global Internet conditions to route online user requests to the most appropriate data center using an optimized Internet route for that user at that moment.
