CloudFlare Named Google Cloud Platform Technology Partner

Collaboration Combines the Power and Protection of the CloudFlare Community With the Flexibility of Google's Infrastructure

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - Apr 13, 2015) - CloudFlare, the leading Internet performance and security company, has collaborated with Google as an authorized Cloud Platform Technology Partner. Starting today, Google Cloud Platform customers can extend the capabilities of their existing infrastructure and also enjoy all of the performance and security benefits of CloudFlare.

CloudFlare extends Google Cloud Platform customers' infrastructure directly to the network edge for even faster content delivery, as well as heightened optimization and security.

"Google realizes the importance of security and combining it with the best available performance only enhances its world-class infrastructure," said Matthew Prince, co-founder and CEO of CloudFlare. "Now customers can enjoy the best of both worlds, protecting and accelerating their web properties while staying focused on growing their core business."

Benefits include:

  • Doubled web performance - CloudFlare uses advanced caching and the SPDY protocol to double web content transfer times, making web content transfer times significantly faster.

  • Datacenters at your customer's doorstep - CloudFlare's global edge network caches static files close to their destination, meaning content always loads fast no matter where customers are located. Also, CloudFlare peers with Google in strategic locations globally, improving response times for Google Cloud Platform services.

  • Protection against DDoS and SQL injection attacks - Because CloudFlare sits on the edge, customers are protected from malicious traffic before it reaches Google Cloud Platform. This keeps websites up and running without compromising page load times or performance.
