Today we announce another speed improvement for our clients. We already signalled that we moved our infrastructure to Akamai to allow a faster delivery of your variations and an improved uptime. Now we announce that we found another set of improvements that optimize the delivery of the variations by 10%.
We optimized our loading of the variation codes and moved our image distribution from Amazon Cloudfront to Akamai. This image load reduces the amount of DNS lookups and gives our client tens of milliseconds of speed on each experience view.
We are talking milliseconds but we wanted to make our SmartInsert™ even smarter and this new addition to our toolbox is now automatically installed on all client accounts from now on. If you want to make use of this speed improvement on existing experiences please repeat the upload of your image on existing experiences. New experiences will automatically go to Akamai’s CDN’s.
