Akamai Edge Workers


Akamai, the 800-pound gorilla in the CDN jungle, has joined the Edge Compute movement by launching their Edge Worker solution in 2021.

Leveraging Akamai’s gigantic network creates an attractive edge solution for those in need of large scale edge compute.

Akamai Edgeworkers is mainly used to deploy JavaScript functions, and possibly Python (we found 1 example with Python code in their repo). Apps can be found on the Akamai Marketplace in case you don’t want to develop your own applications from scratch.
