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.

SYNEDGE Description

SynEdge is a Luxembourg-based CDN provider with sales offices in the United Kingdom and the Netherlands. The company is a subsidiary of the POST Luxembourg group, a large, semi government-owned mail and telecommunications corporation in Luxembourg. Other related subsidiaries include European Business Reliance Centre (EBRC), Visual Online, Eltrona, Victor Buck Services and InTech.

Based on the network map of SynEdge, we assume they lease (part of) the network of Highwinds, possibly with a few added points-of-presence (PoPs) of their own.

Next to regular static content delivery, SynEdge offers private CDN, dynamic content delivery, frontend optimisation and storage.

Customers of SynEdge are, or have been Telemetry and Gamehouse.
