Are the images being served directly from  the file system or via an
intervening process? If so, what? If not, what web server are you
using, how much memory is allocated to it, .... etc. etc.

I would seriously try to analyze this in depth before reaching the
conclusion that your current platform can't support your app.

It would be a shame to sign up with Akamai and then find out you
had a failing network interface card on your server :-)
