Varnish is a data caching platform, which is sometimes referred to as a caching HTTP reverse proxy. It is a web app accelerator that can improve the speed of a website by up to 1000%, based on the content itself. Anytime a visitor accesses any page on a site that uses Varnish, the platform caches the page and delivers it instead of the web server in case the visitor accesses it again. In this way, the web browser request from the visitor is not processed by the server and the web 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 page, which means an enormously improved visitor experience. When any of the cached webpages is updated on the actual website, the info that Varnish saves in its system memory is updated as well, so the website visitors won’t see out-of-date data.
