Since implementing ...

It is very good for any large sites that are vulnerable to attacks from malicious users that could slow down the site. Also for ecommerce sites that cannot afford to be down for any amount of time. If speed is a top concern, then their premium and free versions are worth a shot so that you can te...

CloudFlare does a superb job of being a one-stop-shop for domain services. It updates you if there are any security threats as well as provides best practice recommendations including SSL certificates and other secure traffic concerns. The base package is useful just to see the traffic hitting on...

We went with CloudFront primarily because we have all of our other services with Amazon already. We are using EC2, S3, Elastic Beanstalk, and are very familiar with the interface. It did not disappoint.
