CLOUDFLARE Description

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.

CloudFlare serves, and has served notable brands such as Reddit, Ello, Cisco, Zendesk, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, OkCupid and eHarmony.

SWIFTSERVE Description

SwiftServe is a Singapore-based CDN provider that was founded as a joint-venture by Versio4 Ltd (software, web and mobile product development) and Conversant PTE Ltd (product offering and support services).

SwiftServe also has a reseller offering, a dedicated service under the name of SwiftCDN that allows Network Service Providers to sell the CDN under their own brand. Known resellers of SwiftServe are Telin (Telekomunikasi Indonesia International) and Chunghwa Telecom.

SwiftServe offers web acceleration, large file download, hybrid CDN, transparent caching, video streaming and site optimisation and security. Their network is not published on the website, and we have no information on their point-of-presence (PoPs) coverage.
