What do you like best?
Akamai is the global leader in Content Delivery Network (CDN) services, making the Internet fast, reliable and secure for its customers. It's one of the most reliable CDN's in the market and they consistently perform at or near the top in every region of the world
What do you dislike?
Users don't have granular control over the security policies like on other, newer CDN services, however this can be a good thing if you dont want to manage it on your own or dont have the expertise to do so
Recommendations to others considering the product
On a large scale Akamai is really great for larger quantities of data, but if you are not there yet you can use other CDNs like CloudFlare

We use the caching technology in one of our websites and it is really good, so if the server ever goes down, users get to experience a cached version of it
