...is a company that provides a distributed computing platform for global Internet content and application delivery...Akamai transparently mirrors content — sometimes all content including HTML and CSS, and sometimes just media objects such as audio, graphics, animation, and video — from customer servers. Though the domain name (but not subdomain) is the same, the IP address points to an Akamai server rather than the customer's server. The Akamai server is automatically picked depending on the type of content and the user's network location. The benefit is that users can receive content from whichever Akamai server is close to them or has a good connection, leading to faster download times and less vulnerability to network congestion or outages.
Akamai's customers include many large internet, media and computer companies.
