[Owasp-Malaysia] Mitigate ddos with Cloudflare or similar?

hi everyone,

anyone tried #cloudflare (http://cloudflare.com)? they supposed to mitigate
bad guys attacking websites besides being a cdn.

if that works, maybe a similar and Open infra could be setup to buffer
attacks by distribution of 'proxies' and scale on demand of required
resources to allow more connections (since newer attacks could be trickled).

of course also use forms / validation activities to identify real human
sessions or bot behavior. CF does it with captcha and honeypot/Google DB.

thanks,
James Tan
