Varnish is a data caching platform, which is sometimes referred to as a caching HTTP reverse proxy. It is a web accelerator that can improve the load speed of a site by up to 1000 percent, depending on its content. Anytime a visitor accesses any page on a website that uses Varnish, the platform caches the page and delivers it instead of the web server when the visitor loads it again. In this way, the browser request from the visitor is not handled by the web server and the page will open significantly faster, since the Varnish caching platform can deliver information many times faster than any server software. The end result is a much faster loading website, which leads to an enormously improved visitor experience. In case any of the cached web pages is updated on the live website, the info that Varnish caches in its memory is updated too, so the users won’t end up seeing outdated content.
