NewspaperDirect Adopts Akamai's Dynamic Site Acceleration

Some more great news

Thanks to the millions of regular readers on and dozens of our SmartEditions, NewspaperDirect has outgrown its digital infrastructure and has adopted the industry leader in Web Acceleration Solutions – Akamai – to power all of its digital publishing platforms.

 “To ensure that we continue to provide superior performance to all of our visitors, regardless of where they are in the world, we needed a solution that could keep up with the demands of our rapidly expanding subscriber base,” said Alexander Kroogman, CEO of NewspaperDirect. “We chose Akamai because it has the proven infrastructure we can trust to maximize the performance of our online businesses today and well into the future.”

Since implementing Akamai’s Dynamic Site Accelerator service, NewspaperDirect has offloaded an average of 70% of its existing infrastructure to the Akamai platform and has already seen a dramatic increase in page views.  

Now we’re set for the 100 million reader mark!
