Varnish Cache as a robust distribution mechanism for HLS and HDS video

HTTP video streaming, usually done through HLS or HDS is very well suited for distribution through Varnish Cache. The article basically explains how Varnish helps solve a challenge in the AMS5’s current architecture and how to configure Varnish for doing that.
When performance testing Varnish Cache with HLS video we’ve seen Varnish Cache push as much as 76 Gbit/s of content. Since each HTTP object is rather big the limiting factor is usually the bandwidth available. It’s not everyday we come across blog posts that so thoroughly go through Varnish Cache. Hats off to Karishma and Andrew for their write up.
