Object Delivery accelerates the delivery of content such as images, CSS, JS, and other files by caching them in Akamai Technologies, Inc. edge servers that are near to your end users. Object Delivery offers you self-sufficient setup and product maintenance through the Property Manager interface in Akamai Control Center.
Object Delivery is designed to deliver non-HTML, non-text cacheable objects that are under 100 MB in size. For delivery of HTML pages, whole websites, dynamic applications, or for the delivery of objects larger than 100 MB, you can use our Ion, Application Acceleration, Download Delivery, or Adaptive Media Delivery solutions. Contact your account representative for more information on these products.
Object Delivery is built on a network of over 150,000 servers in thousands of networks, controlled by network intelligence systems that route requests, balance load, and ensure up-time.
