  • If you're referring to edge-caching, I would imagine you'd manage your assets (videos, images, etc.) in whatever manner Akamai proscribes (I haven't worked with Akamai's solution). You'd then have your web site's image URI's pointing to g.yoursite.com/images/... (at least I think it looks like that). You'd then have your images served by Akamai, with your web content served and scaled by Azure.

    Or... like Neil suggested, store your images in Azure blob storage and enable the Azure CDN. This would be a great solution if you don't already have your assets hosted in Akamai.

    No. Although it is worth remembering that Windows Azure has its own content delivery network with an ever-increasing number of nodes.
