Varnish is a data caching platform, which is sometimes referred to as a caching HTTP reverse proxy. It’s a website accelerator that can boost the speed of a website by up to 1000%, based 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 in case the visitor opens it again. Thus, the web browser request from the visitor is not processed by the web server and the page will load much faster, since the Varnish platform can serve information many times faster than any web server software. The end result will be a significantly faster loading website, which means an enormously improved visitor experience. When any of the cached pages is updated on the live Internet site, the info that Varnish saves in its memory is updated too, so the visitors will never see out-of-date data.
