Smart Routing

Cloudflare uses Argo Smart Routing to deliver web traffic over the fastest and most reliable  links available, resulting in noticeably faster web assets and improved end-user experience.

Controlled caching

Caching content on the network reduces the need to source content from hosted servers or origins. The result: reduced bandwidth utilization costs from the origin.
