275 000 requests per second: Yes we can!

In the Age of Reason Galileo Galilei brought upon a tremendous shift in paradigm with the advent of the telescope. The steam engine in the Age of Enlightenment laid the corner stone for modern era transportation. Free from the constraints of theology, these were the technological advancement not seen again until Sonic and Mario.

In our Age of Turbulence, Facebook and iPads are ever prevalent and ubiquitous. With a blink of an eye, the seminal moment of cloud computing and SaS drifted by, and meanwhile, Varnish Cache reached 275 000 requests per second. A new record, a change in the wind direction perhaps, but from today, the noughties have just gotten a little bit quicker.
