Varnish E-Commerce Accelerator

Accelerating your e-commerce platforms by caching the uncacheable

Every e-commerce site faces the same problem: not being able to cache personalized content, causing site performance and user experience to suffer. Magento specifically – one of the world’s leading e-commerce platforms – has been widely accepted as uncacheable.

The reasons for this can be as simple as a session token for shopping cart integration, resulting in a slower page load time.

What is Varnish E-Commerce Accelerator?

Varnish E-Commerce Accelerator is a game changer for anyone who needs content accelerator but has impossible-to-cache content due to personalization. It also sidesteps any need to make changes to the e-commerce software, e.g. Magento. Varnish just steps in in front of the e-commerce platform and handles the rest.

How does it work?

Varnish E-Commerce Accelerator was built with Magento in mind. Building on the new XBody VMOD, Varnish E-Commerce Accelerator takes the personalized content and deconstructs it into JSON data, allowing for caching of user information, session tokens, and dynamic CSRF protections. Pages become cacheable and are easily re-assembled with JSON templates without the need to modify anything in your PHP e-commerce set up.

Results are a hit rate of 90% or better – meaning your performance gets a big boost. In our own testing, Varnish hit close to 15,000 requests/sec and approximately 10 Gbit/sec of outbound bandwidth on a single server while maintaining well under 1 ms response times.

Benefits of Varnish E-Commerce Accelerator:

  • Requires no platform changes or modifications
  • Enhances the performance of sites that have personalized content
  • Increases user engagement & revenue
  • Reduces backend operational costs
  • Dramatically boosts your overall website performance
  • Easy implementation

Who should use the Varnish E-Commerce Accelerator?

Varnish E-Commerce Accelerator is of particular interest for any company that has a slow and hard to cache website. Varnish E-Commerce Accelerator works with all major platforms, including Magento.
