    Akamai CDN resellers

    I've been wanting to try out Akamai but I haven't come across any resellers. I am aware that VPS.net resell for them but now on their website, they list Level3's CDN.

    Can anyone recommend a Akamai reseller?

    I came across this a couple months back.
    You might want to check that out.
    I'm under the impression that Akamai doesn't want too many resellers.
    To undercut what they have to offer.
    But, check out rackspace I guess?

    I found this, but I cant post links yet, so I will do the best I can;

    www akamai com /html/partners/find_partner_industry.html

    The list was quite large, I would have to assume a few of them are resellers.

    I think right now the only "total package" option for an Akamai reseller that targets smaller commits is DistributionCloud, and you'll pay dearly for it (up to $3/GB for low commits). Rackspace doesn't yet support CNAMES, and I doubt they'll ever support origin pull as the CDN product is really an adjunct to their CloudFiles service. Also, as of right now, Akamai via Rackspace doesn't support video streaming, though this is on the roadmap later this year. DistributionCloud supports the full suite of Akamai products, including origin pull, NetStorage, full site delivery, SSL acceleration, etc., which Rackspace likely never will.

    Rackspace is out of the question because they don't support CNAME's.

    Thanks for the recommendations everybody.

    NP. Wish I could have been of more help. I hope the list helped somewhat.
