Varnish Software AB Key Developments

Varnish Software Introduces Mobile-Optimized Version of Varnish Plus with TCP Acceleration

Varnish Software announced Varnish Plus with parallel ESI and Edgestash, new features that significantly improve content delivery on mobile, enhancing user experience and content engagement. The new release of Varnish Plus also includes highly scalable TCP acceleration to speed up application and content delivery by up to 40%. This new version of Varnish Plus, built on the caching software, Varnish Cache, includes two new features that deliver significant improvements to users' web performance on mobile devices: Parallel ESI: Addressing the challenges of web infrastructure scaling, this feature enables a web page to immediately seek out and fetch needed fragments all at the same time which kills latency and provides excellent responsiveness for ESI-heavy pages. The result is a significant performance increase, delivering dynamic webpages up to 75% faster. Edgestash: A pure templating language that quickly does the actual page assembly at the network edge, speeding up delivery for mobile web pages. This feature allows for content rendering "on the wire" by moving the page assemble logic from the browser to the edge (server side). Client-side logic and page assembly can still exist, but when complemented with this kind of edge-side rendering, it becomes much more manageable and high performance, especially on mobile. These two new features will be gradually rolled out during the coming weeks. The new version of Varnish Plus is also ideal for dynamic content transmission across a wide range of web applications and streaming content accessed by a broad set of users and devices. New features include: Highly scalable intelligent TCP -- Improves application and content delivery and relieves congestion on networks with high latency. High-performance software load balancing -- Distributes web traffic requests among different servers to ensure high availability and optimal traffic management while avoiding overload of any one server and defending against denial of service attacks. Truly dynamic backends -- Makes cloud deployments easy by providing flexible DNS-driven backend definitions. SSL-TLS to backend servers -- Provides one modern, minimalistic and fast TLS proxy that improves website security by encrypting communication without relying on third-party solutions. Enhanced persistence -- Massive Storage Engine (MSE) cache contents persist through intentional or unintentional restarts, avoiding costly retransmission of large video or data sets.

Cachefly Deploys Varnish Plus to Support Scalability at High Performance Levels

Varnish Software announced that CacheFly has deployed Varnish Plus to support scalability at high performance levels and to deploy new in-demand features. With Varnish Plus, CacheFly has gained operational efficiencies and maintained its 100% service level commitment to customers, many of whom have massive caches in excess of 100TB. Although CacheFly had considered the open source Varnish Cache, its storage engine was insufficient to support the CacheFly workload. Varnish Plus and its Massive Storage Engine, however, delivered what CacheFly required. In addition, CacheFly is taking advantage of Varnish Configuration Language (VCL) to quickly respond to customer demand for new features.

Varnish Software Introduces Massive Storage Engine 2.0 with Optional Cache Persistence

Varnish Software announced Varnish Massive Storage Engine (MSE) 2.0 with optional cache persistence. The new persistence capability allows websites to retain data across restarts and reboots and ensures that, in the case of a system crash, websites will not lose their cache content. An exclusive module of Varnish Plus, Varnish MSE was designed specifically for the high-performance needs of video distribution, CDNs, and large cache use cases that require Varnish MSE to enable the Varnish caching layer to handle multi-terabyte data sets. For big CDNs, an empty cache is a no-go, and reintroducing large cache objects, of the size for which MSE is required, is time consuming and expensive. With Varnish MSE 2.0, all objects remain in cache with minimal performance reduction. Varnish Massive Storage Engine 2.0 Benefits: Preserve with persistence: With the option to use persistence, large data sets are preserved/retained in the cache on forced or unforced restart, leading to greater durability; and Fast restart: Persistent cache retains cached data from before planned or unplanned crash, avoiding the need for time-consuming reload so operations can proceed full speed ahead with little to no downtime.
