How they use Cloudflare
To expand their course content to video, Food Revolution Network needed a way to host high-quality videos on their website site which were originally streamed live via Youtube and teleconference. Without the ability to control access to who views courses on Youtube, they needed a central player package that had it all. After researching video streaming providers including AWS and Vimeo, they decided on a self-paced course model with Cloudflare Streams that offered no huge upfront cost, easy onboarding, low friction and plugs into a customized REACT player.
Second, Food Revolution Network uses:
Cloudflare Workers as an intermediary between systems to provide a fast routing layer for isolated databases to talk to the Food Revolution Network platform.
Cloudflare for SaaS to offer each customer their own domain. No need to offer a hostname per customer , they can ship static files, and dynamically overwrite CSS as custom domains are requested.
Workers KV to build an entire API gateway to route requests at DNS later without latency. No need to use NGINX.
“It was a real easy experience to work with Cloudflare. We are already using react player and created a custom player to bring in videos to insure compatibility. We had a lot of videos that needed to be posted. We used AWS and considered Akamai and a few others. Cloudflare came as the best value proposition. We were able to move the entire stream from Vimeo to Cloudflare in less than a week”
