Akamai thinking about acquiring Nine Systems

Posted by rexdixon on November 13, 2006

Akamai Technologies a CDN (content delivery network) that has such high profile customers as Apple’s iTunes music store is currently contemplating the acquisition of San Diego based competitor Nine Systems. They are coming out with numbers in the $150 million range or 9 times the revunue.

Technically Speaking, Nine Systems must be making a nice move on the CDN market as Akamai has been around forever and seems to be the leader in that area.
