Delivering excellent real-time experiences at scale to players around the world is a massive challenge. Solve it with Cloudflare — which helps power fast, immersive, and reliable online gaming experiences.
Secure and accelerate your game with Cloudflare's 100% uptime SLA, DDoS and bot mitigation, traffic acceleration, bespoke serverless matchmaking architecture, and more.
Gaming companies are often vulnerable to DDoS attacks. Game platforms that rely on custom TCP and UDP communication protocols require even more resources to prevent these attacks.
Protect the uptime, performance, and integrity of your game servers with Cloudflare.
Get DDoS protection for all your TCP/UDP applications. Give your custom game applications DDoS protection with fast performance.
Reduce the risk of lost customers, declining revenues, and degraded brand with better uptime and protection against Layer 7 DDoS attacks.
Prevent fraudulent account creation and preserve the integrity of your First Person Shooter (FPS) games with Bot Management.
DDoS protection and traffic acceleration for on-premise, cloud-hosted, and hybrid networks — delivered from every Cloudflare data center.
Keep your APIs secure and productive with API discovery, schema validation, strong authentication, and more.
Give developers and contractors secure and streamlined access to internal systems.
Players are likely to be globally distributed, and game servers geographically distant from players — which leads to slow downloads and high ping times. Players are quick to abandon a game if there is noticeable lag or if the game does not respond in real-time.
Cloudflare’s globally distributed network spans 275 cities, enabling proximity to players and delivering lightning-fast experiences.
Deliver online game downloads, software updates, and live video to any device — at scale, and with minimal latency — over Cloudflare’s global network for a consistent and reliable gamer experience.
Use Cloudflare's incredible network intelligence and private backbone to deliver traffic to your gamers over the fastest Internet paths and avoid network congestion.
Ensure fast video delivery, with shorter video startup times and reduced buffering, no matter where your players are located.
You can't improve what you don't measure. Analyze logs from networks, applications, and security services to gain insights on how to improve security and performance for your players.
Monitor the health of your servers, look at latency trends over time, and better understand the threat landscape, all in one place.
Get detailed logs of your HTTP requests. Use these logs to debug, identify configuration adjustments to improve performance and security, and create custom analytics. Combine request logs with other data sources, such as game server logs, for end-to-end visibility.
Get Internet insights, threats and trends based on aggregated Cloudflare network data.
Building, scaling, and maintaining infrastructure to protect and accelerate your game platform can be time- and cost-prohibitive.
Cloudflare's serverless development platform lets you augment existing applications (e.g. user authentication and authorization mechanisms), add new game features (e.g. bespoke matchmaking), or build entirely new games.
Is your game platform hosted on a public cloud host provider? You may be eligible to significantly discounted egress fees.
The combination of Cloudflare and Backblaze B2 Cloud Storage saves Nodecraft almost 85% each month on data storage and egress costs versus Amazon S3.
