Varnish is a content caching platform, which is sometimes referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy. It is a web accelerator that can boost the speed of a site by up to one thousand percent, depending on its content. Every time a visitor opens any page on a site that uses Varnish, the platform caches the page and delivers it instead of the web server if the visitor loads it again. Thus, the web browser request from the visitor is not handled by the web server and the page will open tremendously faster, since Varnish can deliver content many times faster than any web server software. The end result will be a considerably faster loading website, which leads to a much-improved browsing experience. If any of the cached pages is updated on the live Internet site, the info that Varnish keeps in its memory is updated too, so the website visitors won’t see old information.

This is more than enough to optimize the performance of several large-size Internet sites, so the better website load speeds and the decreased load on the virtual machine will be perceptible.
