RE: Akamai Versus NetDNA/MaxCDN
Yeah, I could do 10 tests, I just found 5 to be enough, often giving the same results as 10. As for an Akamai reseller, the best I've been able to achieve is $1,000 monthly through Akamai themselves. I tried to negotiate on the contract, and was able to get a 90 trial period added onto contract, but that was the extent of it. They wouldn't budge on anything else. From what I've heard they have a $25,000 minimum contract requirement (in our case, $1,000 monthly with a 2 year contract). If your business can take the $1,000 monthly hit, thus far, it looks like Akamai is the best choice. Keep in mind that a CDN for a business is also an investment. Conversion rates usually increase with speed increases, and depending on your monthly revenue, that increase may automatically pay for Akamai.
Currently I have no plans to test Akamai against Edgecast. I'm only doing Akamai versus MaxCDN because we're already using MaxCDN, so the switch back and forth was pretty easy. But, you never know.
