Back in 2015 we deployed ECMP routing - Equal Cost Multi Path - within our datacenters. This technology allowed us to spread traffic heading to a single IP address across multiple physical servers.
Internally our DDoS mitigation team is sometimes called "the packet droppers". When other teams build exciting products to do smart things with the traffic that passed through our network, we take joy in discovering novel ways of discarding it.
사내에서 DDoS 대응팀은 종종 "패킷 버리는 사람들"이라 불립니다. 다른 팀이 우리 네트워크를 통해 지나가는 트래픽으로 스마트한 일을 하며 신나할 때 우리는 그걸 버리는 여러가지 방법을 찾아가며 즐거워 합니다.
Cloudflare is protected from attacks by the Gatebot DDoS mitigation pipeline. Gatebot performs hundreds of mitigations a day, shielding our infrastructure and our customers from L3 and L7 attacks.
In previous blog post we discussed how we use the TPROXY iptables module to power Cloudflare Spectrum. With TPROXY we solved a major technical issue on the server side, and we thought we might find another use for it on the client side of our product.
