Three new components to increase website scalability and performance

Unlimited cache sizing, increased caching performance and customized cache optimization support content-heavy, high-traffic sites. Varnish Software is pleased to officially announced the release of Varnish Massive Storage Engine, Varnish High Availability and Varnish Tuner. These three components are designed to support the scalability and performance needs of content heavy, high-traffic websites and are now available as part of our Varnish Plus offering.

“Websites are now a pivotal point of interaction with companies. If information and content isn’t delivered instantly, they will seek alternatives that are just a mouse-click away,”
–Per Buer, founder and CTO of Varnish Software

Unlimited cache sizing with Varnish Massive Storage Engine

The new Varnish Massive Storage Engine tackles the problems of content-heavy sites by allowing the Varnish caching layer to handle multi-terabyte data sets. This makes it possible to cache almost unlimited objects while the website performance remains stable over time. Varnish Massive Storage Engine is targeted at business with large data sets such as online retailers, image banks, video distributors or Content Distribution Networks and enables them to deliver high quality content within their current infrastructure while pushing the bounds of modern web experience delivery.

Increased caching performance and resilience with Varnish High Availability

Varnish High Availability is a high performance content replicator that eliminates cache misses (when an item looked up in the cache is not found) and ensures the stability of the Varnish set-up. By protecting the backend infrastructure from overload caused by cache misses, it increases website performance and minimizes the risk of frustrated visitors leaving websites. Varnish High Availability is for Varnish users whose sites are business-critical. It can be installed with any multi-cache Varnish setup, giving you a highly available active-active caching cluster.

Customized cache optimization with Varnish Tuner

Varnish Tuner automates customized cache optimization in both the Varnish and OS environments. It recommends configuration options, in an interactive way, for the Varnish set-up including how the operating system should be tuned, which cache parameters should be changed or replaced and also explains these recommendations. Varnish Tuner makes it possible for businesses to find the specific set-ups that best matches their resources and needs, resulting in better website performance.

“These three new Varnish Plus components respond to the needs of the top ten percent of Varnish users by delivering unlimited cache sizing, increased caching performance and customized cache optimization.” 
–Per Buer, founder and CTO of Varnish Software


Varnish Massive Storage Engine, Varnish High Availability and Varnish Tuner are all available from today with a Varnish Plus subscription.
