New Launch: R2 Object Storage and WebRTC from Cloudflare!
Cloudflare announced three new technological offerings of which, two will surely be of interest to us, Cloudronians (or is it cloudrons/cloudrants/Cloudrians?)
1. Cloudflare R2 Object Storage
Apparently there is no bandwidth fees or egress fees and the pricing is flat 0.015 USD per GB of data stored per month.
Question: Is this the cheapest compared to Backblaze B2 / Wasabi / etc?
2. WebRTC, Livestreaming service
An API for WebRTC using Cloudflare's global edge network.
Today, we’re launching our closed beta WebRTC Components, allowing teams running centralized WebRTC TURN servers to offload it to Cloudflare’s distributed, global network and improve reliability, scale to more users, and spend less time managing infrastructure.
All this look exciting, but things are not clear yet - particularly pricing and tiers.
Hope cloudron will be ready to take advantage of these for backups and bigbluebutton/ other RTC apps.

@jagan personally I stay away from all things Cloudflare. Like the Tech Giants they are in the business of surveillance cspitalism and are massively over centralising the Internet. See also stuff like https://tech.tiq.cc/2016/01/why-you-shouldnt-use-cloudflare/
