New White Paper: HTTP Streaming with Varnish

We've written a lot in recent weeks about HTTP streaming and the challenges of handling the massive demand. Our context has been the upcoming 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio, illustrating how the streaming traffic demands have escalated with each subsequent Olympic Games, how the BBC (as a real-world example of how to scale up for these kinds of high-traffic events) managed the London Olympics and how different companies have turned to Varnish to help them scale for massive volumes of streaming (and other!) traffic.

Now we turn our attention more specifically to HTTP streaming with our latest white paper. We look at the history of streaming and its challenges and how Varnish Cache and Varnish Plus can be used to secure performance and scalability for your streaming solution. Whether you need to scale up for a resource-intensive, heavy-traffic limited-time event like the Olympics or need a permanent fix for stable VOD or live streaming, Varnish can help you be ready.

Hot off the press, our new white paper is available for download now.
