Varnish is a web app accelerator, which has been gaining a lot in popularity in recent years, as it can increase the loading speed of any website, sometimes even by 100%, depending on the content. This tool is sometimes called a caching HTTP reverse proxy too and is used to lower the overall load on the physical server and to enhance the browsing speed for the website visitors. Anytime a visitor loads a page on a given Internet site, the browser request is processed by the web server and the requested content is delivered as a reply. If the Varnish accelerator is enabled, it caches the web pages that the site visitor browses and in case any of them is accessed for a second time, it’s served by Varnish and not by the web server directly. The improvement in the performance comes from the fact that the accelerator handles the web requests tremendously quicker than any web server, which leads to much faster browsing speeds for the visitors. In case any content is updated meanwhile, the cached web pages will also be updated the next time somebody attempts to open them.
