Incident Report for Cloudflare

Here’s how Cloudflare works:

In the early days of the Internet, when you wanted to load a website, your request would go from your computer to a server, which would then return the web page you requested.

Connection Between Computer And Server

If too many requests came in at once, that server could be overwhelmed and crash, becoming unresponsive to anyone trying to access the resources it hosted.

Overwhelmed server

This made it difficult for owners of Internet properties to provide content that was fast, safe, and reliable. Cloudflare was created to ease these difficulties and empower users with the resources to make their sites, apps, and blogs safe and performant. This is done through the use of a powerful edge network that provides content and other services as close to you as possible, so you get the information as fast as possible.

Website with Cloudflare

You see, Einstein figured out some time ago that the speed of light is a hard upper limit on how fast you can communicate; there comes a point when the only thing you can do is move the content and computation closer! That’s why we put data centers in more than 270 cities all across the world: to give you what you’re looking for quickly!

Einstein's speed of light

Cloudflare also provides security by protecting Internet properties from malicious activity like DDoS attacks, malicious bots, and other nefarious intrusions.

Cloudflare protection

And allows website owners to easily insert applications into their websites without needing to be a developer.

If you’re a developer, we allow you to run Javascript code on our powerful edge network, so that you can get as close to a user as possible. This eliminates delays, and improves the experience for users like you!

Hello world

Cloudflare also provide security and performance for millions of Internet properties and offer great functionality such as SSL and content distribution to every website on our network.

Cloudflare services run silently in the background, keeping many of the websites and services you depend on up and running.
