tiered_​distribution_​customization


With Tiered Distribution, Akamai edge servers retrieve cached content from other Akamai servers, rather than directly from the origin. This behavior sets custom Tiered Distribution maps (TD0) and migrates TD1 maps configured with advanced features to Cloud Wrapper. You need to enable cloud​_wrapper within the same rule.
