Ensure Application Availability

Improve the availability of applications affected by overloaded or unavailable infrastructure.

Users expect their mission-critical applications to always be online and available. Internet applications deployed on a global scale are highly susceptible to outages or downtime due to spikes in traffic, high network latency or server outages at the origin. Cloudflare improves application availability by monitoring network latency and server health at the origin, identifying the best resource from which to serve user requests for dynamic content.

Challenges Affecting Application Availability

Traffic Overload

Both expected and unexpected network congestion or overloaded infrastructure can degrade performance to a point where websites or applications stop responding.

Interactivity and Personalization

Applications or individual origin servers can experience unplanned downtime and hard-to-troubleshoot outages, preventing visitors from accessing assets. Unplanned downtime includes hardware failures or system failures due to misconfiguration.

Disaster Recovery and In-House Load Balancing

Assets can also go offline for reasons unrelated to the network, such as manual and error prone disaster recovery or in-house load balancing, resulting in often hard-to-troubleshoot outages involving expensive triage.

Cloudflare Availability Services

By protecting the origin from being overloaded and redirecting traffic around congested networks and away from failed servers to healthy origins, Cloudflare improves availability of applications.

“Cloudflare maximized service quality and minimized service response time for Crisp. It's a commoditization of expensive network infrastructure for the masses. We can’t live without it.”
