CloudFlare. Anti-DDoS protection. How does it work?
The traffic of the service, which is a part of the CloudFlare community, is directed by several hundred data centers. located in different locations around the world. The CDN automatically saves static files (caching) in a cache. Thanks to this, they are served closer to the Internet users. Dynamic content is loaded from the server. on which the website is located. Using the Anycast technology, Internet users are redirected to the data center closest to their place of residence.
CloudFlare, in addition to real savings in transfer usage, also offers protection against DDoS (also in a free version). It works in such a way that special filters automatically detect attacks on every page in their network, blocking them not only in a given website, but also in the whole CloudFlare community. The CloudFlare network “learns” each new attack by updating the security rules for all its sites.
