We’re pleased to welcome Roberto Moreda, CEO, and Carlos Abalde, CTO of Allenta, to the Varnish Summit arena. They’re taking on Stockholm to show of theeir Varnish Plus technical ability for content access controls, often branded at Paywalls. Check out what they'll be presenting and their career path leading them to Varnish Summit, Stockholm 2014.
What will Roberto and Carlos present?
The presentation is going to show a brief journey of a typical access control (or Paywall) project for a large communication media company, from "we need a Paywall" to "here it is, delivered" using Varnish Plus. They will present their learnings from experience with real customers and how the devil is often found in the details for some.
Roberto and Carlos are looking forward to showing why Varnish Plus is a feature rich, super-flexible caching solution. The Allenta approach leverages these features to design and develop the best Paywall solution for environments where performance is key, moving the access control logic to the caching edge for unsurpassable performance.
