    Yeah we shall see. Though I tend to disable host's firewall in favour of Cloudflare Firewall on edge and CSF Firewall on server. Would have to see how Linode Firewall API performs to be able to control it from server level/SSH.

    No experience yet. If they had DDOS protection enabled for my forums, it didn't kick in for a layer 7 DDOS attack I got yesterday on the forums. Maybe it's more for volumetric layer 3/4 network level DDOS attacks ? Cloudflare showed an extra 1 million requests within a few minutes. Cloudflare Firewall rules and caching optimisations have been adjusted/deployed to better handle it in future too :)

    Yes Centmin Mod Nginx server on the forums were pushing 16,000+ concurrent Nginx connections which was the left over requests once Cloudflare caching absorbed the majority of them.

    Where did you get that info from ? BuyVM IIRC has their own DDOS in house solution paired with others too.
