Cloudflare CDN VS Google Cloud CDN

A content delivery network reduces the costs of delivering traffic to or from your origin server (which is called "bandwidth"). A CDN can cash a portion of your web traffic, thus reducing the amount of data that should be transferred which results in lower bandwidth costs. High-load web projects process terabytes of traffic on a regular basis and even a 15-25% cost reduction can make a tangible difference.

If you want to use this benefit, you have plenty of CDNs to choose from. In this article, we are going to compare Cloudflare and Google Cloud CDN, two famous solutions. Cloudflare is a more established one, with thousands of users and big brands who use the service. Google Cloud CDN was designed by Google and wins the trust of Google Cloud Service users. So what is the best solution for you?
Which solution is better?
Deployment and setup
Both solutions are really easy to set up and use.

Cloudflare just needs you to install it, choose your plan, and change nameservers. You will be all set with a couple of clicks. If your hosting provider is compatible with Cloudflare, you will not even have to change nameservers. In case you have any questions, this CDN has very detailed documentation, numerous videos, and articles online, and a great community for those with a free plan. Users on paid plans can contact Cloudflare's 24\7 customer support directly.

Google Cloud CDN needs you to create a load balancer and click one checkbox. It takes exactly two steps to create a new load balancer. If you have one already, you will just need to click once. Google Cloud CDN, like other Google products, has very clear and understandable documentation. Their clients also have access to 24\7 support via phone and email if they use a definite support package. Their community managers on StackOverflow and Slack are very responsive as well.
Scalability and flexibility
Both solutions are infinitely scalable, with their servers spreading around the world. You just have to make sure that you have enough resources to pay for the scale.

Google Cloud CDN has more than 100 points of presence and Cloudflare has more than 250 of them, 20 of PoPs in China. Still, the first one is considered to be the fastest while Cloudflare always comes second.
Cloudflare and Google Cloud CDN: Key Differences
Cloudflare has one free plan, two plans with a set price (pro ($20) and business($200)), and an enterprise one with custom pricing. It is pretty easy to budget yourself with Cloudflare.

Google Cloud CDN offers custom pricing. They have a page with all the services and a price calculator to roughly estimate the budget but you still need to contact sales representatives to establish a more accurate price. You also can get commitment-based discounts and a free trial that is a nice touch.
Google Cloud CDN and Cloudflare are both great solutions. Google Cloud CDN is the fastest and will be a delight to use if you already utilize Google Cloud Services. Cloudflare is a really popular solution that is famous for its free plan with decent functionality, security service, and intuitive interface. Team
