Clearspring Powers Akamai StreamOS


A couple folks caught wind of the fact that Clearspring is working with Akamai. So I figured it might be a good time to shed some light on this bad boy…

In case you missed it, Akamai is getting into widgets in a big way with their StreamOS product. StreamOS is a rich media content management system. As you can imagine, many of their customers want to syndicate that content via widgets. According to CNET:

“People can make widgets with changing video to use with their desktop or MySpace page, as long as the content provider allows it in its distribution rules.

‘I think everyone realizes that not everyone will come to them, to their site. Viral distribution is not something that is going away,’ said Suzanne Johnson, senior product marketing manager at Akamai.

So how does Clearspring fit in? Duh. StreamOS widgets are powered by Clearspring. This is the first of a couple major partnerships that we will disclose over the next couple weeks. Stay tuned. 🙂
