We're not slowing down! Just a few hours ago we launched Sydney, Australia as CloudFlare's 15th data center. Now our ops team just threw the switch and turned on Atlanta, Georgia as CloudFlare's 16th. I told you to stay tuned!
Over the next few weeks, CloudFlare will be significantly expanding our global network. In total, we'll be adding 9 new data centers and doubling the size of our existing facility in London.
CloudFlare has supported a way to purge your cache for the last year. Unfortunately, it was all or nothing. While that, for practical purposes, didn't cause a significant performance hit for most websites.
One of the behind the scenes topics we think about a lot at CloudFlare is how to handle abuse of our network. I realized that we hadn't exposed our thoughts on this clearly enough. In the next few days, we'll be making some minor updates to our Terms of Service.
