Global Load Balancer


Would there be any benefit to using the Global Load Balancing service with an origin server in a region where CloudFlare does not have a Point of Presence? Our other origin servers are located where CloudFlare does have a POP, but our primary region, Hawaii is not directly covered by CloudFlare.

I can see the Load Balancing helping other regions, but what would happen for users in Hawaii?

Thank you for any insight or info you might have.


If you use latency based routing in the LB it would route it to the pool with the origins that respond quickest to the POP the users are connecting to.
