Akamai buys Canadian firm
Akamai Technologies Inc., an Internet data delivery company based in Cambridge, said it has acquired Blaze Software Inc., a Canadian company with complementary technology, for an undisclosed amount. The acquisition is expected to augment the speed at which Web pages can be delivered. At a time when more people are accessing the Internet through mobile devices such as smartphones, “new performance bottlenecks are emerging,” Akamai said. By combining Akamai and Blaze technologies, Akamai said it can widen such bottlenecks.
