Akamai Actually Works

New, faster Copilot: Pretty good reference story about Akamai.

Well, the new Akamaized Copilot seems to get about 100% more throughput going from Boston to Los Angeles. More importantly, our exhaustive scientific experiments using beakers and chemicals and graph paper and slide rules proved that the usability of Copilot jumped from “tolerable” to “pretty snappy.”

This is cool too:

I tried the new Akamaized Copilot back to my desk in New York [from Munich] and was blown away… Copilot’s speed and reliability doing remote desktop was actually better than the native internet access in the hotel.
