You can use Purge Cache to invalidate or delete cached content in a rapid and predictable manner. This improves offload and performance for fresh, event-driven content. Before Purge Cache, customers avoided caching event driven content, or had to cache it for very short TTLs. This content includes news stories, inventory or pricing data, and often API traffic.
Akamai offers both a user interface and an API for Cache Purge. Their use isn't unique to Ion. See the Cache Purge documentation for full details.
