KEYCDN Description

KeyCDN is CDN provider from Switzerland with 24 points-of-presence (PoPs) worldwide, and 8 more PoPs planned. The CDN service is part of proinity GmbH, a Swiss IT services company that’s also behind image optimiser Optimus.

KeyCDN was founded in 2012 by Jonas Krummenacher and Sven Baumgartner. Their network is non-federated; the entire infrastructure is owned by KeyCDN.

The provider’s feature offering includes two-factor authentication, DDOS protection, origin shield, real-time reporting and more than 24 CMS integrations such as with WordPress, Magento and Joomla.

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.
