Cloudflare Review

Allows us to self-host services like Rocket.Chat and Node-RED, in HA mode

What is our primary use case?

In addition to a reliable and easy to use a DNS service, Cloudflare enables us to host websites on hardware in-house, by protecting us against DDoS attacks as well as from our slightly unreliable ISP. 

How has it helped my organization?

Cloudflare allows us to self-host services such as Rocket.Chat and Node-RED, in high-availability mode, thanks to round robin DNS which allows us to share one hostname between our two locations.

What is most valuable?

  • DNS
  • Round robin DNS
  • Load balancing
  • DDOS protection

to protect us from botnets and attackers, as we are hosting sites in-house.

What needs improvement?

Cloudflare is one service that has been absent of any frustration when setting up or using. Perhaps I would ask that they improve the Free plan and allow us to use it with any TLD (certain ones are not allowed).

For how long have I used the solution?

More than five years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?


What do I think about the scalability of the solution?


How was the initial setup?

Very straightforward, we were set up in minutes.

What other advice do I have?

I'd rate it a 10 out of 10. There is no service as mature as Cloudflare that is also as easy to use, reliable, and hosted from excellent infrastructure.
