Varnish is a data caching platform, which is occasionally referred to as a caching HTTP reverse proxy. It is a web app accelerator tool that can boost the speed of a website by up to 1000%, depending on its content. Every time a visitor opens any page on a site that uses Varnish, the platform caches the page and delivers it instead of the web server in case the visitor opens it again. Thus, the browser request from the visitor is not processed by the web server and the page will load substantially faster, since Varnish can deliver data many times faster than any server software. The result will be a much faster loading site, which leads to a greatly improved website browsing experience. When any of the cached web pages is updated on the actual Internet site, the content that Varnish saves in its system memory is ‘refreshed’ too, so the visitors won’t see old info.
