Varnish is a data caching platform, which is sometimes referred to as a caching HTTP reverse proxy. It’s a website accelerator tool that can improve the loading speed of a website by up to 1000 percent, based on the content itself. Whenever a visitor accesses any page on a site 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 web browser request from the visitor is not handled by the server and the web page will load much faster, since the Varnish caching platform can serve data many times faster than any server software. The end result is a substantially faster loading website, which leads to an enormously improved visitor experience. In case any of the cached web pages is updated on the live site, the info that Varnish caches in its system memory is updated as well, so the visitors will never see out-of-date info.
