Azure CDN from Akamai supports HTTP/2
Posted on Tuesday, August 9, 2016
We are pleased to announce support for HTTP/2 in Azure CDN from Akamai profiles. HTTP/2 is a major revision to HTTP/1.1. It provides faster web performance, reduced response time, and improved user experience, while maintaining the familiar HTTP methods, status codes, and semantics. Though HTTP/2 is designed to work with HTTP and HTTPS, many client web browsers support only HTTP/2 over TLS.
No further action is required from customers to enable HTTP/2 support.
- Multiplexing and concurrency
- Header compression
- Stream dependencies
