Rackspace has announced the launch of Rackspace Content Delivery Network (CDN) service, which is powered by Akamai Technologies. With the launch of the Rackspace CDN offering, Rackspace and Akamai are expanding their longstanding relationship to offer customers integrated, “one-click” access to Akamai’s CDN services via the Rackspace portal.
