EdgeConneX® Partners with CloudFlare to Deliver Faster, More Secure Internet Content


cloudflare.com logo!August 25, 2015 - EdgeConneX®, specializing in global hosting solutions at the edge of the network, announces today a partnership with leading web performance and security company CloudFlare to host its cloud-based edge services platform and Content Delivery Network (CDN) within EdgeConneX Edge Data Centers® (EDC). CloudFlare's next-generation web performance and security platform utilizes the latest technology to process millions of requests per second. Pairing CloudFlare with one of the most geographically optimized data center infrastructures means that EdgeConneX customers will experience a faster and more secure web.

As the fastest-growing CDN in the world, serving two million customers, CloudFlare processes more than five percent of global Internet requests through its network, and has mitigated more than 200 billion cyber attacks on behalf of its customers in just the last month. CloudFlare's selection of EdgeConneX was driven by its strategy for mitigating Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks without sacrificing user experience. EdgeConneX has a distributed EDC footprint that enables CloudFlare to deliver its content faster and more securely to customers nationwide. EdgeConneX is the fastest-growing data center provider of N+1 concurrently maintainable infrastructure and will soon be able to support CloudFlare on a global basis.

EdgeConneX's broad geographic coverage offers enhanced security by further isolating networks from DDoS attacks and other security threats. By virtue of a distributed Edge Data Center footprint, DDoS attacks are mitigated and sites are able to stay online and available to the consumer by automatically shifting compute resources to other sites in the event of an attack.

“CloudFlare is focused on delivering the best security and performance to its customers, and we chose EdgeConneX because it compliments our focus in those areas,” says Joshua Motta, Director of Special Projects at CloudFlare. “Our partnership with EdgeConneX helps us to better serve our existing customers while scaling our footprint, which is all part of our goal to build a better Internet.”

EdgeConneX specializes in providing purpose-built, power dense and edge of network Edge Data Centers and wireless solutions that enable the fastest delivery of content to end-users. EdgeConneX has created a new Edge of the Internet by designing and deploying facilities that are strategically positioned nearest to network provider aggregation points, ensuring the lowest latency data delivery, with improved security and quality of service.

“As a company whose clients include leading financial institutions and federal government agencies, CloudFlare's decision to provide its platform in our Edge Data Centers continues to validate our ability to protect customers from downtime caused by DDoS attacks,” remarks Clint Heiden, Chief Commercial Officer at EdgeConneX. “CloudFlare's focus on state-of-the-art technology aligns perfectly with our desire to build the Internet's Edge where it's needed today — nearest the end-user where security is inherently greater.”
