Varnish is a data caching platform, which is occasionally called a caching HTTP reverse proxy. It is a website accelerator that can boost the load speed of a website by up to 1000%, based on its content. Every time a visitor accesses any page on a website that uses Varnish, the platform caches the page and delivers it instead of the web server if the visitor opens it again. Thus, the web browser request from the visitor is not handled by the server and the web page will open tremendously faster, as the Varnish caching platform can deliver data many times faster than any web server software. The end result will be a considerably faster loading page, which leads to an improved website browsing experience. If any of the cached pages is updated on the actual website, the info that Varnish caches in its memory is updated too, so the users won’t end up seeing outdated content.
