CloudFlare vs Filestack: What are the differences?

CloudFlare: The Web Performance & Security Company. Cloudflare speeds up and protects millions of websites, APIs, SaaS services, and other properties connected to the Internet; Filestack: Easy, Powerful File Uploads. Filepicker helps developers connect to their users' content. Connect, Store, and Process any file from anywhere on the Internet.

CloudFlare and Filestack are primarily classified as "Content Delivery Network" and "File Uploads" tools respectively.

Some of the features offered by CloudFlare are:

  • CDN
  • WAF (Web Application Firewall)
  • DDOS Protection

On the other hand, Filestack provides the following key features:

  • Connect your app to everything from Dropbox to Gmail in just 2 lines of code and let Filepicker.io handle the mess of uploading files - we give you a clean, short URL that is easy to store and read from.
  • Your files are stored in your existing S3 bucket. We handle all the complicated javascript and backend APIs to give you a clean and elegant way of saving files directly to your S3 bucket.
  • To make it even easier to work with user content, we enable image post-processing. This way, regardless of what type of file a user uploads from the Cloud or their local device, you can be sure it's in exactly the right size. To convert an image, take the filepicker url and append /convert, along with query parameters specifying what you want to change.
