Caching “Uncacheable” Artifactory Resources to Boost Cache Efficiency

Varnish is designed to optimize performance by enabling opportunities for efficiency improvements. In previous discussions, we have explored the role of Varnish in enhancing the performance of artifact management tools like Artifactory. Our focus now shifts to a particular aspect of this process: the way Varnish manages authorization in scenarios where it serves as an intermediary between Artifactory and its users. We will delve into Varnish's capability to cache content that is typically labeled "uncacheable" due to access restrictions. By caching private artifacts and adhering to Artifactory’s authorization rules, Varnish not only alleviates the load on the backend but also elevates cache performance, thereby bolstering developer productivity.
