How it works

Powered by an HTTP reverse proxy, Varnish API and Web Acceleration is a highly flexible and configurable solution. It is designed to efficiently scale up your website, API and content delivery to meet large volumes of traffic, all while maintaining the lowest possible response times.

Origin server
Putting a proxy in front of your origin servers protects the backend from flooding and lets the cache do the heavy lifting.
Varnish Cache server
Caching with Varnish enables 300% to 1000% faster content delivery, and reduces backend server load by up to 89% while handling unlimited simultaneous visitors.
Varnish ensures speedy, responsive content delivery optimized by device type. Serving content quickly and efficiently doesn’t just mean you can serve more users, it also gives them faster downloads and a better experience.
