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.

Why Cloudflare?

“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”
