The Varnish Enterprise 6 application suite delivers super-fast web and streaming experiences using powerful caching technology on Oracle Cloud. Varnish Enterprise’s powerful reverse proxy/HTTP engine technology speeds up website page loads and reduces media streaming latency, which helps to deliver great web experiences to huge audiences. Offloading content delivery to Varnish Enterprise in the cloud also reduces backend server load by up to 99%, so you can scale up while protecting critical infrastructure and keeping costs predictable.

Advanced Features

The Varnish Enterprise 6 for Oracle Cloud Infrastructure OCI image available from the Oracle Cloud Marketplace image contains a version of Varnish Enterprise 6 that’s optimized for cloud, with high availability, cache persistence, custom analytics, and more. The software include the following advanced features:

  • Performance boost: Enhanced caching, with high availability provided by built-in content replication, prefetching, and finely tuned policies.

  • Resilience and persistence: Contains a persistence layer that’s optimized for storage and caching large volumes of data. The cache can persist across restarts, and there is better storage for larger data sets to alleviate fragmentation and regain performance.

  • Personalization and decision-making on the edge: Deliver personalized content quickly and move content decision-making closer to your users with Parallel ESI, JSON parsing, device detection, and IP geolocation.

  • Security: TLS encrypts communications and data, both on the server and the client. Cached data, both in memory and on disk, can also be encrypted. Varnish Enterprise contains a built-in web application firewall, too.

You can download the Varnish Enterprise 6 application suite with the bring-your-own-license (BYOL) option from the Oracle Cloud Marketplace.
