On this blog we've recently discussed our cloud predictions, and posited that despite the saturation of cloud solutions, various kinds of cloud deployments will nevertheless continue to grow over the course of 2019. We have also previously covered the background of why the cloud meets companies’ changing needs and how flexible cloud solutions can be when and as needed.
We've been working on adding Varnish to the Quick Start program for quite a while now and are excited to share that Varnish 6 is now available with Quick Start on AWS.
What is Quick Start?
"Quick Starts are built by AWS solutions architects and partners to help you deploy popular solutions on AWS, based on AWS best practices for security and high availability. These reference deployments implement key technologies automatically on the AWS Cloud, often with a single click and in less than an hour. You can build your test or production environment in a few steps, and start using it immediately." (AWS)
