Serverless Computing at The Edge
EdgeWorkers enables developers to create and deploy microservices across more than a quarter of a million edge servers deployed around the globe. When development teams activate code at the edge, they push data, insights, and logic closer to their end users. Akamai’s high-performance and scalable implementation model ensures that data and computation are not hampered by latency issues that can negatively impact digital experiences. With EdgeWorkers, development teams can create innovative services and manage Akamai as code as part of their digital infrastructure.
