Agree that real world performance data is better. This is based on tests from one location, which seems to have a very fast connection to Dyn and CloudFlare servers. 4 ms average ... that don't exist in the real world.

At Turbobytes, we have a lot of data on CDN performance, incl DNS lookup time, but not on different DNS providers

Definitely not for Thanksgiving. Christmas plans are still up in the air. Will be home briefly for the first weekend of Sundance, then flying off to (of all the crazy things) Davos.

Good story from Wired on the cyber attacks launched against both Israeli and Palestinian websites during the recent conflict. Based on data gathered from CloudFlare's network:

A post about how CloudFlare kept all our data centers online during Superstorm Sandy, and what services elsewhere on the Internet we saw fail.
