Akamai says Learn Akamai’s content is structured and suited to customers’ roles and knowledge levels.
Designed by instructional experts, Learn Akamai features self-directed learning paths that guide the journey to make learning fast and easy.
Hands-on labs, says Akamai, enable customers to experiment with Akamai security and edge products in a safe, sandbox-like environment, building skills and confidence.
Learn Akamai links customers with a variety of related learning resources — from demo videos and case studies to troubleshooting guides and technical documentation.
The platform’s content combines product knowledge and use case scenarios. Learning paths highlight synergies with other Akamai products and services, helping customers understand how solutions can work together.
Akamai will add and update content continuously, keeping pace with new company developments and evolving customer needs.
Learn Akamai says its flexible design makes it ideal for organisations with limited training budgets, as well as those needing solutions for getting new employees up to speed quickly with their Akamai products.
Akamai launched a Learning Hub earlier this month that houses all of its product learning resources including Learn Akamai, Akamai University, Akamai Developer Hub, and Akamai Community.
"With our free, on-demand Learn Akamai platform, customers can gain the knowledge they need,” said Akamai vice president of marketing Ari Weil. “With the launch of Learn Akamai, we now offer our customers an array of best-in-class learning resources, whether they are new to Akamai or experienced users looking to expand their capabilities.”
Few months ago, Akamai had an outage that hit many high-profile sites across the Internet. The outage lasted for over an hour, from 15:46 to 17:09, and was caused when a configuration update set off a DNS bug. It disrupted popular websites such as Steam, American Airlines, Fox News, and HSBC.
