Welcome to IP Application Accelerator

IP Application Accelerator (IPA) empowers you to achieve organizational agility by leveraging the Internet as a standard platform for delivering accelerated TCP/IP based enterprise applications to any user, on any device, anywhere in the world. IPA is not suited to UDP-based applications.

IPA allows you to:

  • Improve the performance of your IP-based applications while avoiding high capital expenditures often associated with private-WAN infrastructure
  • Leverage key optimization technologies already integrated into Akamai's globally distributed platform such as dynamic mapping, route optimization, packet redundancy, and a high-performance transport protocol

Your company may benefit from using IPA if you:

  • Deliver core IP-based enterprise applications to users via SSL VPN
  • Virtualize applications running over Citrix ICA and Microsoft RDP protocols
  • Use real-time interactive web conferencing solutions
  • Use virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI)
  • Transfer large uncacheable files via methods such as secure FTP or SSH
  • Are a SaaS provider offering services such as remote desktop management and hosted email with archiving
  • Deliver applications that run outside the standard web TCP ports 80/443
