Akamai Service

The CityU has become the first university in Hong Kong to sign with Akamai for providing free and fast access to many popular Web sites such as: CNN, Mcafee, Symantec, NBC, Reuters and Lycos. With Akamai hosting some or all of their Web contents, these popular sites will no longer need to constantly upgrade their Web servers or even purchase any Web server at all, and yet we, as end users, can expect unfailing deliveries of Web contents quickly and reliably. Currently, the CSC has installed three Akamai servers on campus; two are now providing services exclusively to CityU users and one designated as a stand-by backup.
