Traffic bottlenecks, poor interconnection between local ISPs, and an active threat landscape can create web performance, reliability and security challenges for websites operating in China. Cloudflare and our strategic partners in China have created a global network that offers a fast experience for visitors inside and outside of China — with DDoS mitigation, web application firewall (WAF), and other security services built in.
China’s Internet architecture differs from the rest of the world. Three major ISPs control the network, but due to limited peering, traffic congestion is frequent. Congestion also occurs when traffic leaves and enters China — resulting in high latency and packet loss.
To optimize delivery of content throughout China, it’s important to have geographically dispersed data centers across China, and connectivity to the major ISPs in each region. This is what the Cloudflare China Network provides. We’ve partnered with JD Cloud to grow our network. By the end of Q2 2021, we have 32 PoPs in 30 unique cities within mainland China.
Serve static content from data centers that are dispersed across many cities in mainland China and connected to the major ISPs in every region.
Further reduce website load times with the option to resolve DNS requests within China.
Stop the largest attacks with unmetered, always-on protection that operates at the network edge, reducing time-to-mitigate and eliminating web performance penalties.
Build and deploy custom rules in minutes, and draw on threat intelligence automatically curated from protecting millions of websites.
Protect data in transit by uploading your own custom SSL certificate, use a universal certificate, or let Cloudflare manage dedicated certificates specific to your business.
Build and deploy serverless code instantly across the entire Cloudflare network (including China) to give your applications exceptional performance, reliability, and scale.
The Cloudflare China Network is run in partnership with JD Cloud, the cloud computing arm of the Chinese eCommerce giant JD.com. JD Cloud was named a 'Strong Performer' in Forrester's Wave for public cloud platforms in China.
Every security and performance service runs in each data center in the Cloudflare China Network, giving it the capacity to withstand the largest attacks and function as normal in the event of isolated outages.
Cloudflare continually analyzes incoming attacks and automatically applies this threat intelligence across the entire network, including data centers in China. Stopping an attack on one customer makes all customers safer.
Manage your traffic and security posture inside and outside of China from a unified control plane — no separate dashboards, support, or billing. Changes propagate across the entire network within minutes.
