Akamai is introducing FreeFlow, a dynamic mirroring technology that mirrors pages to servers closer to the source of demand. Unlike similar proxies, like Janet's in the UK, the service does not improve access speed to all sites, only to those sites that pay a fee. Interestingly FreeFlow is Linux based. Link found on LWN.
