Not to be confused with Amazon Cloudfront, CloudFlare is a San Francisco-based CDN provider founded in 2009.
The company offers a Free plan, which includes a CloudFlare issued SSL certificate. The features included in the Free plan are basic; more become available to Pro, Business and Enterprise customers.
CloudFlare, together with Akamai, Fastly, Highwinds, Level3 and EdgeCast, is part of the Google Cloud Platform CDN Interconnect program. As part of the collaboration, 30 CloudFlare points-of-presence (PoPs) are directly connected to the Google Cloud infrastructure. When a content request comes in from a Google Cloud origin it will route directly through the interconnect between both parties rather than through the public Internet. As a result, latency is reduced for origin requests. Clients using Google Cloud also receive a discount to their egress traffic.
Cloudfront is a CDN by Amazon, which can be used on a stand-alone basis, or in combination with other Amazon web products.
The CDN integrates very well with Amazon Web Services (AWS), and is often used in combination with their storage solution Amazon S3.
Amazon Cloudfront offers on-demand, no-commitment pricing plans which can be found on their website. The pricing overview of Cloudfront is slightly complex; customers should be aware that the unit prices for bandwidth and requests differ per region.
