Cambridge, MA (WiredPRNews.com) — In 1998, a few scientists from MIT University in Massachusetts came up with an idea that would prevent Internet congestion, but the hitch was that there was no congestion on the Internet at that time. But now, the idea makes sense as more and more people are conducting business online, finding information online and even getting music and movies online.
The foresight of the Akamai team and the solution that they created sold for $636 million in 2007 and was listed at number 48 on the 2007 list of rapid growing companies published by Fortune Magazine. The company has been expected to break a company revenue record of $1 billion in 2009.
Akamai has been extremely popular for its network of over 30,000 servers and custom algorithms of traffic routing which are helpful in speeding up audio and video streaming from web sites. The company also serves 7 out of the top 10 social networks including MySpace and Facebook by helping them accelerate their upload times for videos, photos and other time-consuming activities.
The CEO of Akamai, Sagan, says that more and more companies have started their business over the Internet and Akamai helps them with a solution for selling. However, there are competitors of Akamai that do not provide similar service in a better way but at cheaper rates, Akamai remains to stay on the top.
