Varnish is a data caching platform, which is sometimes referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy. It is a web application accelerator tool that can improve the load speed of a site by up to 1000%, based on its content. Anytime a visitor opens any page on a website that uses Varnish, the platform caches the page and delivers it instead of the web server if the visitor opens it again. In this way, the browser request from the visitor is not processed by the web server and the page will open considerably faster, since the Varnish caching platform can deliver content many times faster than any web server software. The end result will be a much faster loading page, which leads to a much-improved visitor experience. When any of the cached pages is updated on the actual Internet site, the info that Varnish caches in its memory is ‘refreshed’ too, so the users will not see old data.
