CAMBRIDGE, Mass. and SAN DIEGO, April 26. Akamai Technologies, Inc., the leader in powering video, dynamic transactions and enterprise applications online, and Coradiant Inc., the leader in web application performance management, today announced the release of Coradiant TrueSight Edge for Akamai, a custom-built, software-based product that provides performance visibility into Web applications delivered by Akamai. Available on a monthly subscription model, Coradiant TrueSight Edge for Akamai provides enterprises with enhanced capabilities to visualize, manage and optimize the performance of global applications in the cloud, delivered over the Akamai EdgePlatform.

Enterprises trust Akamai for improved application performance, availability, and security and also benefit by eliminating additional costly capital expenditures for datacenters and server infrastructure. Coradiant TrueSight Edge for Akamai offers detailed viewer, traffic, and performance metrics with interactive dashboards and geographic drill-down capabilities. The product is designed to help enterprises gain greater visibility into end user performance to ensure consistent service levels and better adoption of Web applications globally.

"Leveraging Akamai for global Web delivery is essential. At the same time, knowing how well our applications are performing across the globe is vital. TrueSight Edge's Global Application Delivery dashboard allows me to easily measure the positive impact of the Akamai network on performance across the globe," said Steven Conine, CTO CSN Stores. "For the first time, we are able to instantly see the performance we deliver through the cloud to every end-user, with full visibility to how every transaction performs at all times."

"Any method of testing performance from anything other than the actual viewpoint of end-users is flawed. In order to make good operational decisions, IT managers need to be able to see performance in real time, so they know exactly what users are experiencing at any given instant, from any particular geography," said Lydia Leong, Research Director at Gartner.

Coradiant TrueSight Edge for Akamai includes an easy-to-deploy, software-based virtual appliance that is located in the customer's data center. The interactive, built-in dashboards and detailed statistics enable IT to monitor end user performance of their applications delivered over the Internet. Additionally, it provides a side-by-side comparison of performance of applications delivered with and without Akamai.Key Benefits:
Displays real-time visualization of application traffic worldwide
Accurately measures application performance as perceived by the end user
Provides executive dashboards with full visibility across all users in real-time
Compares application performance delivered using Akamai versus other delivery methods
Collects actionable data required to optimize Akamai delivery and page design for best performance

"The end-user perspective provides the only accurate point of view to effectively optimize the delivery of complex global Web applications," said Ali Hedayati, president and COO of Coradiant. "Our partnership with Akamai provides enterprises with critical information needed to optimize their Web applications."

"With clear visibility into the end user experience on a global basis, organizations can quantify the impact of the Akamai Web Application Accelerator service," said Willie Tejada, vice president, Application and Site Acceleration at Akamai. "Our joint solution gives our enterprise customers insight into the performance of their Web applications that makes it possible to rationalize their application delivery investment."
