Google Cloud Storage

Akamai has deployed the most pervasive, highly distributed content delivery network (CDN) with approximately 340,000 servers in 130+ countries and over 1,200 networks around the world. Akamai’s NetStorage optimizes and scales content delivery with persistent, geographically replicated cloud storage, including for server log data.

Data Stream (AWS S3 and GCS)

Data streams capture new data in a cloud storage system and pass only that data to an outside service, like Oncrawl. Oncrawl supports data streams for AWS S3 and for GCS.
