Varnish is a web accelerator written with performance and flexibility in mind. Its modern architecture gives it a significantly better performance than competing solutions. Varnish stores web pages in memory so web servers don't have to create the same web page over and over again. Varnish Cache serves pages much faster than any application server; giving the website a significant speed up.
