My company is in the process of developing a SaaS offering. Part of that offering is to store a large number of encrypted data blocks on object storage and send those to client machines upon request. The blocks are around 512k in size and each block stored in the object storage will be downloaded 2-4 times.
Since we are dealing with large quantities of these blocks, we will need several terabytes of storage short-term and up to a petabyte or more in the long run.
While I found the section “2.8 Limitation on Serving Non-HTML Content” in the terms, it is not clear whether this applies to R2 and/or to paid accounts. Any clarification would be appreciated.
With that said, Cloudflare’s automatic abuse system currently cannot discern between disproportionate amount of non-HTML content served from Cloudflare R2 using Workers (allowed) and a regular origin server (not allowed). Therefore I would recommend reaching out to Cloudflare’s customer support before launching to have these abuse checks disabled. That way your zone won’t be wrongly throttled once you start serving large amounts of data.
