    Expensive though at US$0.10/GB data transfers, for 40TB bandwidth = $4,096/month !

    yeah read that in the comments as well

    TTFB will always be higher with a proxy in front and ultimately depends on speed between both visitor and cloudflare origin and cloudflare origin and backend origin.

    Cloudflare Load Balancer would be better for TTFB if you used Geo-Steering to multiple geographic backend origins like my setup i posted at https://community.centminmod.com/th...ing-from-aws-route53-dns-to-cloudflare.11563/

    I'm trying it for the last 2 days, and I can feel the difference in terms of speed.

    I tested also and it is faster with it but very expensive....
    I stop it after a few days as the monthly cost for my case will be around 1.000Euro :-(

    I'll enable it for a week or two then compare stats later.
    Pure OVH Dedicated vs Cloudflare w/ Argo vs Only Cloudflare.
