Varnish is a content caching platform, which is sometimes referred to as a caching HTTP reverse proxy. It’s a web accelerator tool that can improve the speed of a site by up to 1000 percent, based on the content itself. Whenever a visitor accesses any page on a website that uses Varnish, the platform caches the page and delivers it instead of the web server in case the visitor loads it again. In this way, the web browser request from the visitor is not handled by the web server and the page will open significantly faster, since Varnish can deliver data many times faster than any web server software. The end result is a much faster loading website, which leads to an improved browsing experience. If any of the cached web pages is updated on the live Internet site, the info that Varnish saves in its system memory is updated as well, so the website visitors will never end up seeing outdated data.
