CloudFlare's Network Engineer, Tom Paseka, will be in Hong Kong at the end of August. During his time there, we wanted to host a meetup for CloudFlare users and anyone interested in web performance and security.
CloudFlare had an outage across much of our network today. The outage began at 20:19 (GMT). It affected approximately 75% of traffic to CloudFlare's network. The length of time for the outage varied depending on region, but the maximum period of downtime was approximately 15 minutes.
CloudFlare is now connected to HKIX (Hong Kong Internet Exchange). HKIX is the largest Internet Exchange in Asia transferring around 200Gbit to its 160 ISP, Carrier and Content networks.
