Akamai has announced new edge capabilities to help customers create better user experiences. 

It is making EdgeWorkers more flexible with new resource tiers that enable customers to better fit their needs. The two tiers are Basic Compute, which is suitable for applications that require lower CPU and memory consumption, and Dynamic Compute, which is suitable for applications that demand higher levels. 

Other new features include EdgeKV, which provides low-latency access to data at the edge, and API acceleration, which uses special hardware, reserved capacity, and prioritized routing to ensure successful completion of API transactions. 

Red Hat launches migration toolkit for virtualization

The new toolkit will help companies accelerate their open hybrid cloud strategies. Customers can use the toolkit to migrate VMs to OpenShift.

With Red Hat’s migration toolkit for virtualization, we’re aiming to make the arduous process of moving your virtual machines to containers simpler and more efficient while minimizing risk,” said James Labocki, senior director of product management, Red Hat.
