We're using google's pagespeed service. From what I can gather it just draws the page from our webserver and runs it through the mod_pagespeed optimisation module. I'm wondering does it do any proxy/caching as well, or is it strictly one request in/one request out?
Now we're also using google's cloudflare CDN/proxying service (elsewhere). From what I can gather cloudflare is a big proxy/caching network/service. Does it do any page optimisation as well, or does it strictly store and forward exactly what it received from our webserver?
I'm working with a business critical website and have been instructed not to try anything 'just to see what happens' so I'm forced to ask "what happens if you use both pagespeed and cloudflare together"?
I'm expecting nothing bad. I expect the cloudflare cache would draw our pages from pagespeed which in turn is drawing from our webserver. The end result being optimized pages in the cloudflare cache.
Is my understanding correct?
