When Cloudflare launched, three of the original five cities in our network were located in the United States. Since then, we have grown the breadth of the global network considerably to span 66 countries, and even added expanded the US footprint to twenty five locations.
Cloudflare is excited to announce deployments in Detroit and San Diego, which are our 114th and 115th data centers respectively. They join Colombo, Sri Lanka and Cape Town, South Africa.
Each day at CloudFlare is full of surprises. As it turns out, it takes a lot of work to stop massive attacks and to help make the web faster. Over the past six months, our entire team has contributed in every way imaginable to more than double the capacity of our global network.
We just turned on our latest data center in Los Angeles. In its first minute, the facility processed more than 30,000 requests. We expect that number to rise over the next 24 hours.
Cloudflare has expanded its data centers to three adding a new location in San Jose this week. By adding data centers to our platform, Cloudflare can deliver even faster site performance.
