Oh man thank you so much for the comment! Regarding AWS pricing - it isn't the best but it's getting better. For an example if you compare the performance and cost of API Gateway V1 vs V2 (which is what we used to deploy Vapor) it's like 50-70% cheaper and faster.

I totally understand that Vapor might not be for everyone and every app but at the end of the day the fact that you can type in "vapor deploy production" and have a scalable ready to use website in like 3-5 minutes of deployment time is amazing.

Cloudflare is doing some cool things - i've especially heard they have a great team on DDoS protection as i had a couple people DDoSed.

What's your Laravel hosting setup? Do you combine Cloudflare with something or?

Cloudflare fixed pricing vs AWS pay per request ... Cloudflare is much much more than just DDoS and you don't get any of the really good stuff because vapor locks you out by requiring a different DNS provider. Cloudflare+[Cloud Provider] is the way to go unless you have more money than time.

I know CloudFlare has a lot of things nowadays. Tell me do you maybe have some kind of a good tutorial or video about CloudFlare infrastructure. Do you also use it in combination with Laravel or?
