Akamai Technologies (AKAM) Company Overview

Akamai Technologies (NASDAQ:AKAM) helps companies speed up their websites by using Akamais own high-speed network to copy clients' websites to servers that are physically close to the company's users, and therefore increase download speed. This process, known as caching, is especially important for Online Video websites, which are particularly bandwidth-hungry.[1] The company earned $860 million in revenue and $145.9 in net income in 2009.[2]
