Active Availability Monitoring

Active availability monitoring checks the health of your servers to make intelligent traffic routing decisions. Through periodic HTTP/HTTPS requests, monitoring can be configured for specific URLs with customizable intervals, timeouts, and status codes. We can even check for specific text in a response. Availability monitoring can be configured to check the health of your origin servers as often as every 15 seconds, with reporting via email notifications and a REST API.

Cloud-based Load Balancing

Cloud-based load balancing eliminates the need for dedicated hardware or software solutions, reducing the impact of local network failures on your global availability, while offering a cost-effective solution that scales with your growing user base. The capacity of your infrastructure increases as traffic distributed across multiple origins. Load-balancing offers a number of configuration parameters that allow traffic to be divided within a group servers (pools) or between pools.

Fast Failover

Our highly available DNS infrastructure makes failing over fast, increasing service reliability. Traffic proxied through Cloudflare's CDN is able to failover within seconds, circumventing the need to wait for visitors' DNS caches to refresh. As soon as an origin or pool of origins is marked as unhealthy “unavailable”, Cloudflare’s automatic, multi-region failover distributes traffic to healthy origins within a pool ("group of origins").

Global Geo-steering

You can dramatically improve end user experience, particularly for mobile and e-commerce applications, by connecting visitors to infrastructure that is in the same part of the world as them. Cloudflare's geo-steering capabilities work across both proxied and non-proxied traffic, allowing you to geographically control delivery of any TCP or UDP traffic based on the location of the visitor.

Additional Benefits
