Wikitravel Shared:30 May 2007
We're slowly moving some of the static files on Wikitravel from our one Web server to using the Akamai network for content delivery. Akamai is a Content Delivery Network; a world-wide distributed cache that shortens the path for delivering files while offloading some pointless tasks from our servers.
The upshot is that you should see some performance improvements today*, and more improvements soon. --Evan 23:35, 29 May 2007 (EDT)
- You may be seeing some performance problems if you're reading this around 3AM-4AM UTC 30 May. I had to clear the cache for the Akamaization to take effect, and that meant some lower performance for a few minutes.
