Do i need Maxcdn if i have my site on cloudflare

My site has JS and images being served from maxcdn while my domain is using cloudflare dns so do i need maxcdn, having it along with cloudflare would make an impact on load times or overall performance. Or am i just wasting my resources on maxcdn ? I am confused about it since cloudflare cdn is not really similar to maxcdn it seems so.

MaxCDN is nice because you can push-load it before those resources are called. Cloudflare is a pull CDN that pulls the resource as it’s needed so it’s ready for the next visitor at that region.

If your site has frequent visitors from specific regions, Cloudflare does a very good job of keep the cache alive. You’d have to experiment for yourself to see which approach works best for you.

Thanks for the update.
