Liquid Web, a managed hosting company part of the Madison Dearborn Partners family of companies, has announced their partnership with the Cloudflare Bandwidth Alliance. By joining this alliance, Liquid Web customers would benefit from reduced bandwidth charges automatically.
The Bandwidth Alliance is a group of cloud and networking companies committed to providing the most cost-efficient experience for mutual customers. It was created to help customers save money on bandwidth by waiving or reducing data transfer charges. Its promise is to send all traffic from their network to their partners, free of bandwidth changes.
In return, the members promise to send traffic from their networks to Cloudflare with no bandwidth charges, all with the aim of making Internet security more attainable for Internet citizens.
The partnership between Liquid Web and Cloudflare would offer 3 key benefits:
- Free egress traffic for all Liquid Web customers (traffic leaving Liquid Web, aimed at Cloudflare)
- Automatic enrollment and savings for all Liquid Web customers
- Alignment with industry leaders such as IBM Cloud and Microsoft Azure
