Media Temple has partnered with CloudFlare, a free service that makes the whole Internet faster, safer, and smarter — one website at a time. Adding it to your Media Temple hosting plan is quick, easy, and free.
CloudFlare now includes Railgun, a service that speeds up websites once thought “un-cacheable” - for example, with rapidly changing or personalized content.

(mt) will serve any new files while CloudFlare updates its global network. You also have control over your cache settings.
You upload all your files to your (mt) hosting service as usual.
Railgun is a new component of CloudFlare that accelerates the connection between each CloudFlare data center and an origin server. It caches previously uncacheable pages so that even when the origin server must be consulted, web pages are delivered very fast. It even works for rapidly changing pages like news sites.
Yes. However, in order to use SSL (https://), you’ll need to upgrade to a paid service through CloudFlare.
