IBM Adds Akamai to Hosting Deal

IBM Corp.'s Web hosting customers are going to be able to access Akamai's streaming media services as a result of a deal the two companies signed last week. The streaming media services are an addition to an existing deal that let IBM Global Services resell Akamai's FreeFlow content-delivery service. IBM has 175 data centers around the world for Web hosting. Akamai has more than 6,000 servers in 54 countries for content delivery and streaming media services.
