What is CloudFlare?
Cloudflare is a content delivery network (CDN) that increases the performance and security of every website on its network, protecting from a broad range of threats and attacks. Over 6,000,000 websites run on the Cloudflare network—ranging from individual blogs to e-commerce sites to the websites of Fortune 500 companies to national governments. Cloudflare powers almost a trillion monthly page views—more than Amazon, Wikipedia, Twitter, Zynga, AOL, Apple, Bing, eBay, PayPal and Instagram combined—and over 25% of the Internet’s population regularly passes through our network.
Faster web performance
Cloudflare runs 115 data centers strategically located around the world. When you sign up for Cloudflare, your website begins routing traffic to the nearest data center.
As your traffic passes through the data centers, Cloudflare intelligently determine what parts of your website are static versus dynamic. The static portions are cached on their servers for a short period of time, typically less than 2 hours before they check to see if anything has been updated. By automatically moving the static parts of your site closer to your visitors, the overall performance of your site improves significantly.
Cloudflare’s intelligent caching system also means you save bandwidth, which means saving money, and decreases the load on servers, which means your web application will run faster and more efficiently than ever. On average, Cloudflare customers see a 60% decrease in bandwidth usage, and a 65% in total requests to their hosting servers. The overall effect is that Cloudflare will typically cut the load time for pages on your site by 50% which means higher engagement and happier visitors.
Broad web security
At the beginning of 2016, Cloudflare experienced and mitigated against some of the largest distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks ever seen. As attacks like these increase, Cloudflare is stepping up to protect websites.
Cloudflare’s security protections offer a broad range of protections against attacks such as DDoS, hacking or spam submitted to a blog or comment form. What is powerful about our approach is that the system gets smarter the more sites that are part of the Cloudflare community. We analyze the traffic patterns of hundreds of millions of visitors in real time and adapt the security systems to ensure good traffic gets through and bad traffic is stopped.
Any website can deploy Cloudflare, regardless of your underlying platform. By integrating closely with Elive, the process of setting up Cloudflare is simple.
