The performance & reliability your customers expect

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.

Speed up app development & delivery with serverless

Cloudflare Workers is a serverless JavaScript and WASM execution environment that lets developers enhance existing applications or create entirely new ones without having to configure or maintain servers or containers.

Applications built with Workers run on the Cloudflare global network. Application logic is delivered within milliseconds from your users, ensuring high availability, low-latency responsiveness, and scalability to support spikes in demand.

With Cloudflare, it is simple to build your SaaS application on Workers and extend the benefits of Cloudflare’s product suite to your end customers.

Once we started using Workers it was really fast to get up to speed. It was like, 'oh, I can just go into this playground and write Javascript which I totally know how to do' — and then it just works.

Save big on egress fees with the Bandwidth Alliance

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.
