Building Argo: An Autonomous, Adaptive Internet Routing Overlay

Abstract: How do you get bits across the Internet 35% faster? At Cloudflare, a small team of engineers in central Illinois built Argo, an autonomous, adaptive routing layer on top of the Internet. Argo continuously measures Internet performance across Cloudflare’s network and intelligently identifies routing paths that are faster than vanilla BGP Internet routing. We solved many technology challenges building Argo — we built out a distributed network proxy capable of scaling to 10% of global web requests and analyzing event streams of hundreds of thousands of events per second.
