Caching in on Varnish

A session at LISA15

Wednesday 11th November, 2015

11:00am to 11:45am (EST)

Varnish is a state of the art web accelerator, which traditionally sits in front of a web server and caches content. However, that's just the tip of the iceberg. For web applications, especially high traffic, demanding web applications, Varnish can be leveraged to load balance, direct, manipulate and enhance the traffic of a highly scalable web environment at multiple tiers. More importantly, Varnish can be deployed by Chef, is automation friendly, highly configurable and can also provide a wealth of useful data to DevOps engineers looking to garner operational analytics and application performance data.
