VIDEO: Matthew Prince, CEO and co-founder of CloudFlare, talks about defending against a 100G-bps attack and what it takes to build a modern, scalable cloud platform.

At the heart of efforts to blunt that attack was the CloudFlare platform, which was able to successfully defend against the massive onslaught and keep its clients online throughout the epic attack.
How did CloudFlare do it? In a video interview with eWEEK, CloudFlare CEO, Matthew Prince describes the tools, techniques and processes his firm used to defend against the immense attack.
