Deliver fast, rich user experiences for Internet applications that increase engagement and conversions, while reducing costs.
Consumers expect web pages to load quickly. Slow page load times can lead to high bounce rates, page abandonment, and lower conversion rates. Web pages are becoming increasingly complex and users are more globally dispersed; which degrades the user experience. Cloudflare brings content closer to your users by caching static web content on its network. Image files can be optimized to significantly improve load times, and dynamic content can be compressed and routed on the fastest, least congested path to the end-user.

Cloudflare’s global Anycast network spans 200 cities in 100 countries, reducing latency and time to first byte by delivering content closest to visitors.
Setting up Cloudflare takes as little as 5 minutes. The easy-to-use dashboard enables quick configuration of fine-grained functionalities to improve the performance of complex applications.
Cloudflare includes integrated security services to defend against DDoS attacks, customer data breaches, and abusive bots, while preventing performance trade-offs.
Network characteristics that can impact performance: the number of roundtrips to establish a connection, number of requests, latency of packets (distance or throughput), client-side render times, and varied payload sizes. Additionally, the following factors can affect Internet application latency:
When applications use APIs to fetch dynamic content to support personalization and interactivity, the number of connections and trips to origin infrastructure increases, resulting in performance degradations and poor visitor experiences.
As modern web page visitors become more globally dispersed, content must travel longer distances, sometimes to countries with slow or unreliable networks. For example, a website with an origin server in San Francisco might have an equal number of global visitors as it does local and global visitors will experience increases in latency.
Every Cloudflare data center runs an integrated stack of performance features which address the most common causes of poor performance. These features help solve many of the core problems that slow down the delivery of applications over the Internet. From fast web address lookups to accelerated delivery to the origin server, Cloudflare speeds up traffic at key points in the life of a request.
