Now that we don’t have to worry anymore.

Railgun is the CloudFlare’s latest performance optimization technology that gives you significant improvements in site load times. The great news is, this special technology is offered free of charge to Cloudflare enabled domains.

 

Here, how this works.

Railgun improves the performance of the domain by caching content on your website that has usually been uncacheable. 

It does this by tracking changes to website’s content on the byte level and improving the connection between ServerFreak’s servers, Cloudflare’s servers and the visitor to your website.  Many can enjoy benefits from this technology, especially, a site with slowly- changing content would benefit the most from Railgun.  

 

Technically, Railgun uses a different compression technique to speed up the website performance. It authorizes traffic through a special protocol that would normally travel between Cloudflare and your web server over HTTP, which speeds up and secures the connection.

According to Cloudflare, this has resulted in a 730% performance increase where it successfully achieves 99.6% compression ratio on average.  As a result, an average website can expect a 1.43x performance increase.

 

In short, Railgun transfers only the changes in markup from one request to the next instead of transferring the entire request between Cloudflare and your environment.  Thus, this cuts down on bandwidth, transfer time and overall page load times. Railgun caches these difference in memory to make page processing as fast as possible.
