CloudFlare 跟百度合作進入中國市場

昨天的大新聞,CloudFlare 宣佈跟百度合作進入中國市場:「How We Extended CloudFlare's Performance and Security Into Mainland China」。

在「China network」這邊可以看到各種限制,首先是需要有牌 (ICP) 才能用:

CloudFlare customers that wish to serve traffic for their domains across the China network must possess a valid Internet Content Provider (ICP) license. An ICP license is a Chinese government issued license required to host or cache Internet content within mainland China. Learn more about how you can obtain an ICP license here.

另外是不支援 HTTPS:

For the moment the China network does not support HTTPS traffic (HTTP only). Support for SSL/TLS will be made available in the coming months.

目前只開放給 Enterprise 用戶:

Initially, the China network will be limited to Enterprise customers. Over time, as we are better able to operationalize the onboarding of customers, we hope to extend the benefits to all plan levels.

由於要 ICP 的關係,對於境外網站沒有太多幫助。另外也不確定是不是還是用 Anycast 技術,如果是的話就要煩惱某些網站的流量有機會被導到中國了。
