Argo

Argo Smart Routing reduces Internet latency on average by 35%; connection errors by 27%

Content delivered from a customer server relies on the quality of established network paths for consistently fast performance. Traditional networking technologies utilize static routing information that can send content across slow and congested paths. Slow loading times and connection timeouts increase the likelihood of a poor user experience that can reduce revenue or damage brand reputation.

Cloudflare routes 10% of all HTTP/HTTPS Internet traffic providing Argo with real-time intelligence on the true speed of network paths. Argo's smart routing algorithm uses this information to route traffic across the fastest paths available, and maintains open, secure connections to eliminate latency imposed by connection setup. Argo’s tiered caching technology uses regional tier 1 Cloudflare data centers to propagate content to Cloudflare’s global network of 117+ Data Centers, minimizing requests to servers and reducing costs.

Argo Smart Routing

Load times can't be slow

With almost half of online consumers saying they will abandon a page that takes more than 2 seconds to load, speed has emerged as one of the most straightforward ways to compete in the crowded, hypercompetitive online marketplace. Argo improves performance by routing visitors through the least congested and most reliable paths using Cloudflare's private network.

  • Congestion Avoidance: Routing decisions using real-time network conditions
  • Persistent Connections: Minimize latency imposed by TCP connection setup
  • Private Network: Traffic is routed over Cloudflare’s private network instead of the open internet
  • Tiered Caching: Tier 1 data centers propagate content to a global network of 117 Data Centers

Making the Internet Work the Way It Should for Anything Online

Cloudflare speeds up and protects millions of websites, APIs, SaaS services, and other properties connected to the Internet. Our Anycast technology enables our benefits to scale with every server we add to our growing footprint of data centers.

Performance

Cloudflare is dedicated to enabling the best possible performance for our customers. Our global network speeds up and streamlines connections from visitors to their online destinations in a number of key ways:

  • CDN

    Moving content physically closer to visitors with our CDN is one of easiest way to improve the performance of your website and reduce load on your web servers.
  • Website Optimization

    Cloudflare lets you automatically enable the latest in web technologies. Our web optimization features cover everything from mobile image optimization to aggressive GZIP and HTTP/2.
  • DNS

    Cloudflare is one of the fastest managed DNS providers in the world. The same 117 data center network that powers our CDN dramatically speeds up domain resolution for your website’s visitors.
  • Load Balancing

    Cloudflare Load Balancing provides load balancing, geo-steering, monitoring and failover for your Internet facing infrastructure enhancing service availability.
  • SSL

    Modern SSL isn’t just for security—it can actually improve the performance of your website by leveraging features like OCSP stapling, session resumption, HTTP/2, and TLS 1.3.

Security

As applications move to the cloud, their security needs to move with them. Cloudflare’s security services operate at the edge of the network, making it possible to identify and mitigate threats faster than on-premise solutions.

  • DDoS Protection

    Our enterprise-class DDoS protection network has 20 times more capacity than the largest DDoS attack ever recorded. Operating at the network edge, it protects against all forms of DDoS attacks.
  • WAF

    Our web application firewall benefits from the collective intelligence of our entire network. When we identify a new threat from one website, we can automatically block it from the other 6 million websites on our network.
  • Secure Registrar

    Registering your domain through Cloudflare is the most secure way to protect your trademark from domain hijacking.
  • Dedicated SSL Certificates

    With a few clicks within the Cloudflare dashboard, you can easily and quickly issue new certificates, securely generate private keys and more. Dedicated SSL Certificates are available for purchase on all Cloudflare pricing plans.
  • Rate Limiting

    Rate Limiting gives you granular controls to detect bad traffic, customized rulesets to ensure that your legitimate visitors are not impacted, and insights to improve your security posture as attacks evolve.
