Elephant in the room - Akamai

Please see my email on Friday where I outlined a few of the dynamics at play.  Akamai isnâ??t just one thing, itâ??s an entire basket of products that all have their own resulting behaviors.  This is why even though you may peer with us directly you may not see 100% of the traffic from that interconnection.  (Take SSL for example, itâ??s often not served via the clusters in an ISP due to the security requirements we place on those racks, and this is something we treat very seriously!)

This is why Iâ??m encouraging people to ping me off-list, because the dynamics at play for one provider donâ??t match across the board.  I know we have thousands of distinct sites that each have their own attributes and composition at play.

Iâ??ve been working hard to provide value to our AANP partners as well.  Iâ??ll try to stop responding to the list at this point but donâ??t hesitate to contact me here or via other means if youâ??re seeing something weird.  I know I resolved a problem a few days ago for someone quickly as there was a misconfiguration left around.. We all make mistakes and can all do better.
