I think this might be helpful. That's why I setup Cloudflare for my webprog24 website. The performance did not change and I asked people from all over the world (Mexico, India, USA) about the loading speed. They all say that the first time hit is better on this website. But that's it.

Use an oldschool CDN then. If you want it to be geo-aware, remember that you may well need a geo-aware DNS service to run it.

Because CF attempts to dumb everything right down, it has to proxy your web page, and that will always make it slower.

A CDN ( in the original meaning of the word? ) will - once set up - deliver static resources from a local source. Combine this with decent expires headers for them, and you should both lower the stress on your web server, and improve performance for the customer.

Once you've set that up, you need to size and configure your web server to deliver in a performant manner - but at least you don't have to tune it to deliver static content at the same time.

EDIT: I see you're running drupal. Don't forget to install a full page cache at application level too.
