Varnish and Microservices: Introducing zipnish

Microservices emerged as a pattern some years ago. Initially it was even more fuzzy and vague of a pattern than what it is today. One of Varnish Cache’s earliest supporters, Amedia, decided to redesign their infrastructure and went for a microservice pattern.
