Transparent CDN, your content delivery network, has been working hand in hand with one of the most powerful pieces of software out there: Varnish® Software.
Varnish® Software delivers world-class content delivery solutions. Increasing speed, scalability, resilience, and flexibility together with Transparent CDN provides your content delivery a whole new level of performance.
All Transparent CDN platforms work for web caching with Varnish CacheTM, a web application accelerator that is installed in front of any server that speaks HTTP and is configured to cache the content. It is a reverse HTTP proxy designed for modern hardware, operating systems, and workloads.
But this application is more than a reverse HTTP proxy that caches the content of a web page in order to speed the server up. And Transparent CDN knows this. That’s why we give our customers the crème de la crème, providing not only high-performance caching but also for other great uses:
As Thijs Feryn says: “Slow websites suck. Users don’t have much patience and in a highly-saturated market, having a fast website can give you the edge over your competitors. Raw performance is important, but a stable time to the first byte under heavy load is just as important. We call this scalability and it’s a tough nut to crack. There are plenty of ways to make your website scale, most of which require a considerable amount of time and money. Luckily, a decent caching strategy can reduce the impact of all that traffic. Varnish is a tool that can cache your HTTP traffic and take most of the load off your servers”
And do not forget, Transparent CDN and Varnish® create the synergy that speeds up your web, so you can be faster my friend 🙂
