It might be a bit early to say ‘watch out Cloudflare!’ especially considering its $20 billion worth, but a Slovenian startup thinks the web security giant has missed a trick in the market as developers are more ignored in favor of large corporate clients.

bunny.net has now raised a $6 million funding round led by Runa Capital and Capital Genetics to prove it’s a mistake for companies to rely on just one provider. In June, Cloudflare suffered an outage that affected traffic in 19 data centers and, for example, shut down thousands of websites for more than an hour.

Bunny founder Dejan Grofelnik Pelzel says platforms like Clouflare, which mainly serve business customers but emphasize developers, leave some sites vulnerable.

He says Bunny.net wants to take advantage of this by providing a developer-friendly CDN that charges for traffic but offers other features for free.

Cloudflare works in a different way, freeing up bandwidth but monetizing additional subscriptions for enterprise add-ons.

Instead, bunny.net makes small developers pay for services, but they claim at a lower level than Clouflare, while offering developer-friendly tools like Bunny Fonts, a privacy-focused drop-in replacement for Google Fonts.

It now claims to power more than 1 million websites for more than 24,000 paying customers, including brands like Hyundai and AppSumo.

Dmitry Galperin, GP at Runa Capital, said in a statement: “The web stack is evolving and so is the infrastructure. In a race for enterprise clients and their volumes are missing existing CDNs in the innovation game. Bunny.net is filling the gap by providing a modern developer-friendly edge infrastructure ranging from lightning-fast content delivery to scriptable DNS and load balancing.”

Founder and developer Pelzel, says he built a CDN for himself and realized others might be interested in it too, hence the startup.

“We plan to expand from data storage and distribution and are now working on security and global computing solutions. Ultimately, I want to help the Slovenian tech ecosystem and build a company that will be the destination for Slovenian tech graduates,” he said in a statement.
