CT Cloud is one of the largest cloud computing service providers in China, offering quality cloud services to customers. As part of the strategic partnership, CT Cloud has agreed to offer an integrated solution incorporating Akamai’s full suite of industry-leading media delivery, Web performance, and cloud security offerings with its own Cloud services to Chinese businesses looking to grow their global Web presence. In addition, the partnership is designed to enable close cooperation between the two companies in the areas of technology and network access, thus strengthening Akamai’s China CDN offering for accelerating content from global customers to Chinese consumers.

“With trade in and out of China continuing to increase, Chinese enterprises require a high performing, secure, and always available Web presence to compete in today’s multi-national marketplace,” said Mr. Wu Xiangdong, general manager of CT Cloud. “Enterprise web infrastructure must be agile and scalable, providing users with a consistently fast and reliable experience. Our choice is to partner with Akamai to provide our enterprise customers with superior Internet content delivery across the globe.”
