cloudflare server network
By running 14 data centers that are strategically located around the world, when you sign up and start using CloudFlare, we begin routing and monitoring your website traffic to the nearest data center.

Then, as your website traffic passes through the data centers, CloudFlare intelligently determines what parts of your website are static versus dynamic. The static portions are cached on our servers for a short period of time, typically less than 2 hours before we check to see if they’ve been updated. By automatically moving the static parts of your site closer to your visitors, the overall performance of your site improves and significantly speeds up.

By utilising CloudFlare’s intelligent caching system this also means that you save bandwidth, which in turn means saving money, and significantly decreases the load on your server, which means your website will run faster and far more efficiently than before.

On average, CloudFlare customers see a 60% decrease in bandwidth usage as well as a 65% in total requests to their servers. This means that the overall effect is that CloudFlare will typically cut the load time for pages on your site by 50% which then means higher engagement and happier visitors to your website.

CloudFlare offers Broad web security

During 2011, CloudFlare identified a 700% increase in the number of distributed denial of service attacks (DDoS) that they tracked on the Internet (see the chart below). As these type of attacks are increasing, CloudFlare is stepping up to protect websites.

By having CloudFlare’s security protections enabled your website will have a broad range of protections against attacks such as DDoS, hacking or even spam submitted to a blog or comment form. What is powerful about CloudFlares approach is that their system gets smarter the more sites that join and are part of the CloudFlare community. CloudFlare analyze all the traffic patterns of hundreds of millions of visitors in real time and then adapt their security systems to ensure good traffic gets through and all the bad traffic is stopped.

The CloudFlare goal is nothing short of making attacks against websites a relic of history. Given their scale and the billions of different attacks that are seen and adapt to every year, they are well on their way to achieving that for sites within the CloudFlare network.
