Cloudflare expands Bandwidth Alliance with Alibaba Cloud

Cloudflare has expanded the Bandwidth Alliance by partnering with Alibaba Cloud, the data intelligence backbone of Alibaba Group.

The Bandwidth Alliance, launched in September 2018, is a group of forward-thinking cloud and networking companies that are committed to discounting or waiving data transfer fees (also known as bandwidth fees) for shared customers. The Bandwidth Alliance now includes 20 partners, all committed to providing the most performant and cost-efficient experience for mutual customers.

“We launched the Bandwidth Alliance to give our customers a faster, more secure, and more reliable Internet, without the awful fees that have historically bogged them down,” said Arjunan Rajeswaran, Head of Strategic Partnerships at Cloudflare. “Alibaba Cloud has built an impressive business that considers its customers first, and together, we will give our joint customers the best Internet experience possible.”

By joining the Bandwidth Alliance, customers using both Alibaba Cloud Object Storage, and Cloudflare products, will have their data egress fees waived outside mainland China if OSS products are purchased from alibabacloud.com.

"In addition to waiving the egress fee, Alibaba Cloud will also waive up to 100 million API requests, and 10TB image processing fees for all customers in regions outside of China after joining the Bandwidth Alliance,” said Alex Chen, Alibaba Cloud Senior Director of Product Management. “Alibaba Cloud’s initiative of the elimination of ‘request fees’ is an industry game changer. The combined solution will pass on massive savings to our customers, and at the same time, eliminate complexity in managing storage cost.”

Now, joint customers of Cloudflare and Tencent Cloud will pay zero data transfer fees for all traffic between their networks outside of China. Cloudflare has long had an international presence, with co-location facilities in more than 180 cities across more than 80 countries, including China.

“People everywhere want faster, more secure, and more reliable Internet,” said Cloudflare co-founder and CEO, Matthew Prince. “In working with Tencent, and other partners, we are better positioned to address the numerous challenges that are faced by enterprises as they expand internationally, to help users everywhere experience the best Internet possible.”
