Welcome to Object Delivery

Object Delivery accelerates the delivery of smaller content by caching it on ‚ÄčAkamai‚Äč edge servers that are near your end users. It's built on a network of over 175,000 servers, in thousands of networks, all controlled by network intelligence systems that route requests, balance load, and ensure uptime.

Where it applies

Object Delivery is designed to deliver cacheable objects that are under 100 MB in size. For delivery of websites, dynamic applications, or for the delivery of objects larger than 100 MB, you can use our Ion, Download Delivery, or Adaptive Media Delivery solutions. Talk to your account team for more information on these products.
