Cloudflare Spectrum – now available on the Pro and Business plans
Slow Minecraft server? Are your players experiencing lag?
Delivering immersive and secure gaming experiences to your Minecraft players around the world is a massive challenge — network latency and DDoS attacks contribute to the ‘lag’ and downtime of your Minecraft server.
Solve this challenge with Cloudflare Spectrum – which helps power fast and reliable online gaming experiences.
Players are likely to be globally distributed, and your game server geographically distant from players. This leads to high ping times and suboptimal player experience — in other words, "lag."
Cloudflare Spectrum vastly cuts down on lag.
By establishing sessions from the players to their closest Cloudflare data center, which proxies your game server, connections are way faster.
Additionally, traffic over the Cloudflare network is routed faster than the "best-effort" Internet. Much like modern navigation apps, Cloudflare learns from the traffic to over 27 million Internet properties to route traffic using the fastest and most efficient routes in real time.
Deliver faster player experiences with Cloudflare Spectrum — no matter where they are, or what device they use.
