"Akamai Technologies this week plans to introduce four J2EE-based Web applications that enterprises can deploy quickly without purchasing any hardware or fixed assets. Meanwhile, Speedera Networks next week will launch its FlexComputing service for distributed application hosting and delivery. [...]
The J2EE-based applications include Lucene, an open source site search application that allows the processing of all searches to take place on Akamai’s own network. [...] The other applications launched this week are User Prioritization, which prioritizes access to back-end applications for site visitors making a purchase; Online Registration, which ensures the collection of registration data; and Contest, which allows site promotions to be run entirely on Akamai’s network."
I’m interested in hearing about actual deployments. This sounds expensive and complex.
I'm CEO of an online trade publishing firm in the marketing and defense verticals. We try to make news and data digestible and useful in an environment that is more noisy each day. This personal blog mixes my thoughts and interests on politics, business, software, and more, based on my business and personal experiences. Over the years I have posted items that turned out spectacularly wrong, and a few posts that stood the test of times better. Personal views only.
