Wanna write a Cloudflare app? No? Would $100m change your mind?

Cloudflare don't charge for bandwidth. That in itself can be a huge cost saving...

If your servers go down, they keep serving your content until it's back up.

Because they take the majority of the load, you can reduce the amount of in house infrastructure needed to serve your content.

All for free.

Even without the added goodness of their web application firewall (paid plans only though), they are well worth the effort to set up and use.
