CloudFlare® Content Delivery Network

Cloudflare® Content Delivery Network

June 21, 2013     

Graphene joined the Pro level of the CloudFlare® global network.  CloudFlare is a massive Cloud Network based on 28 data centers distributed in 16 countries:

  • Australia, 
  • Austria, 
  • Canada, 
  • Czech Republic, 
  • France, 
  • Germany, 
  • Hong Kong, 
  • Japan, Poland, 
  • Singapore, 
  • South Korea, 
  • Sweden, 
  • The Netherlands, 
  • United Kingdom,
  • United States of America.   

CloudFlare® provides dynamic web badges whose colour changes depending on the status of the access of the website (and, inherent safeties for the accessing Visitor) on CloudFlare. Please, refer to the  badge in the lower left side of each web page. If your connection to this Website is: 

  • based on CloudFlare, the cloud in the badge will be of orange colour;
  • not based on CloudFlare, the cloud in the badge will merge with it.

CloudFlare protects from malwares and accelerates the downloading of the pages of Graphene website for Visitors.  More, it reduces hops and latency.  Commonly a single request is less than 10 hops and takes less than 30ms. Data centers automatically cache the web site static files at their edge nodes so that these files are stored closer to Visitors, what allow to deliver the dynamic content directly from the web server.  CloudFlare uses the technology called 'Anycast' to route Visitors to the nearest data center.

Approximately two-thirds of the requests for sites in CloudFlare are served directly from the cache of a data center that is physically the closest to the person surfing the web. The fact that CloudFlare has data centers around the world means that whether you are in Atlanta, Sao Paulo or Vladivostok, web pages are delivered to you quickly, even if the original web server is thousands of kilometers away.   

The cooperation with CloudFlare allows us to provide faster and safe connection with Visitors, and the location of them almost doesn´t matter.  Further information here.
