Cloudflare Grows its Network By 25 Percent to Speed Up and Secure the Internet
SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sep 13, 2021--
Cloudflare, Inc. (NYSE: NET), the security, performance, and reliability company helping to build a better Internet, today announced that it has grown its network to span more than 250 cities in over 100 countries, more than tripling its overall network capacity to 100Tbps and increasing the cities in its network by 25% in the last two years. By continuously expanding and optimizing its network, Cloudflare is able to deliver a faster and more reliable Internet experience to users and businesses anywhere in the world.
More is more when it comes to building the fastest network. The closer Cloudflare is to every human on Earth, the faster it can deliver content to websites, applications, and corporate networks securely and reliably. That’s because traffic typically must travel a far distance between the user’s location and a data center, or flow through multiple networks in the process. Over the years, Cloudflare has built a network of highways across the Internet so that each additional data center brings content closer to Internet users around the world. What’s more, today Cloudflare’s network interconnects with over 9,800 networks globally, including major ISPs, cloud services, and enterprises to reduce the unpredictability and speed blocks of traffic flowing across multiple networks.
“We want to optimize the scale and intelligence of our network so that Cloudflare is not only the most global network on Earth, but also the most local one,” said Matthew Prince, co-founder and CEO of Cloudflare. “We will continue to invest in bringing our network closer to as many people as possible because we believe in providing security, privacy, and reliability for all. On top of expanding our network, we’ll soon share more on how we are creating the fastest modern network.”
