Speed and Reliability for Global Gamers are the main challenges for crazygames.
“Website reliability and speed are very important for ensuring that amazing experience.” While regional hosting offers local users a fast and reliable experience, expanding that same experience to a global audience is a challenge. “Our traffic is global,” Mertens continued. “When you want to serve your website fast globally, you need to build a global infrastructure. For a small company like us, that’s not feasible.”
CrazyGames turned Cloudflare for global content delivery and security. Today, CrazyGames uses Cloudflare’s CDN (Content Delivery Network) to cache and serve content from data centers in over 200 cities around the world and bolsters site security with Cloudflare’s WAF and DDoS mitigation. “Switching to Cloudflare allowed us to lower our bill, improve the performance of our site, and simplify our infrastructure stack,” Mertens explained.
