What is Varnish Cache?

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.

Brontobytes understands the importance of keeping page loading times down, and we are pleased to announce the addition of Varnish Cache to our web hosting services.

Improved User Experience
Reducing your website's load time will increase the time your users spend at the site. Nobody likes slow website's. Load time speed is a key factor determining users loyalty.

Varnish Cache is really, really fast.
It typically speeds up delivery with a factor of 300 - 1000x, depending on your architecture.

Enhanced Resilience Against Failures
If you should experience problems with your web- or application Varnish Cache can continue to serve content that already resides in its cache, protecting your revenue stream.

Reduced Power Usage
Huge savings are made with Varnish, both financially and carbon wise. Serving a page from Varnish takes approximately 1% of the resources of serving it from a scripting language like PHP.

Best Product in its Class
Choosen as a critical component by some of the largest websites in the world, like Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter.

Unmatched Flexibility
Varnish Cache has a unique, policy driven configuration language, giving you the flexibility to adapt Varnish Cache's behavior to exactly match your needs. Do you need to serve different content to users using mobile devices or coming from another country? Varnish can handle just about any requirement.
