Application sluggishness and downtime alienate customers, reduce conversions, and negatively impact search engine rankings. However, ensuring low latency and high availability is a challenge because so many variables are involved, including server health and workload, geographic distance from the server to the end user, application design, and DDoS attacks.
Cloudflare’s performance solutions help SaaS providers convert and retain more customers by delivering consistently high-performing, highly reliable apps to global user bases.
The customizable Cloudflare CDN increases performance and enhances agility by giving you granular control over content caching and purging. Decide exactly when to fetch data, purge by tag, and set customizable cache expiration periods (TTL).

Egress fees, also known as bandwidth or data transfer fees, are a perennial pain point for SaaS providers. Often, these fees make up the largest portion of a provider’s cloud services bill.
If your app is hosted by a public cloud provider, you may be able to significantly reduce your egress fees through the Bandwidth Alliance – a group of forward-thinking cloud and networking companies that are committed to discounting or waiving data transfer fees for shared customers.
