Azure CDN will be retiring Azure CDN Standard from Akamai on 31 October 2023 – transition to another CDN profile to avoid service interruption
Published date: 31 March, 2023
Beginning 16 May 2016, Azure partnered with Akamai Technologies Inc to offer Azure CDN Standard from Akamai. Azure and Akamai Technologies Inc have decided not to renew this partnership.
As a result, on 31 October 2023, services of Azure CDN Standard from Akamai will no longer be supported.
From now through 31 October 2023, you will still be able to manage existing profiles. After 1 June 2023, you will no longer be able to create new Azure CDN Standard from Akamai profiles. After 31 October 2023, you will no longer be able to access or modify previously created Azure CDN Standard from Akamai profiles.
You're required to move your workloads to another CDN profile such as Azure Front Door or Azure CDN from Verizon by 31 October 2023. Learn more about setting up your new CDN profile.
If you fail to migrate your workloads by 31 October 2023, Azure CDN Standard from Akamai profiles still active on 31 October 2023 will be migrated by Azure CDN product engineering to another Azure CDN profile with feature and pricing parity beginning 1 November 2023.
