Los Angeles and Geneva – January 25, 2023 – SixSq, an Ekinops Company, and Varnish Software, a leader in caching, streaming and content delivery software solutions, today announced a partnership to integrate and deliver Varnish Software’s feature-rich suite of web cache and HTTP accelerator solutions – Varnish Enterprise [link needed] – via the Nuvla platform and marketplace. This integration significantly simplifies the procurement, deployment and management of Varnish Software’s technology, enabling new capabilities and unparalleled performance for SixSq customers and their users at the edge.
By utilizing the Nuvla Marketplace to deploy Varnish Software, telecom operators and CSPs in any location can now flawlessly deliver lightning-fast, high-quality web and streaming experiences while significantly lowering costs and hardware requirements across an entire ecosystem of distributed edges.
“Service providers require consistent and reliable speed and performance to deliver excellent web experiences for users, at scale,” said Irene Lundin, Chief Delivery Officer at Varnish Software. “Nuvla speeds up the way we can deliver Varnish Software by simplifying the deployment and maintenance process. We are now better equipped to deliver next-gen connectivity wherever it is needed, anywhere in the world.”
The new integration is part of a broader collaboration between the two companies to bridge 5G satellite communications with advanced web caching and content delivery at the edge, which includes contributions to the European Broadcasting Union (EBU)’s 5G-EMERGE consortium.
“Our partnership with Varnish Software perfectly demonstrates the value of app delivery using the Nuvla Marketplace,” said Marc-Elian Bégin, SixSq CEO and Co-founder. “Customers from any business sector can now deploy Varnish Software’s caching app at the telco edge, near edge as well as far edge, with a direct and measurable positive impact on the digital experience of users.”
Importantly, Varnish Enterprise is the only software that can provide an edge runtime environment, enabling operators to write and execute compute logic as close to the end user as possible in mere microseconds. It can be installed in front of any server that accepts requests via HTTP/HTTPS to significantly speed up response time by an impressive 300 – 1000%, and reduce backend server load by up to 99%.
