Almost all organizations rely on some form of content delivery. From websites to media to software. The transfer of data, internally and externally, over HTTP has been critical to the digital transformation of every industry. Historically, organizations turned to Content Delivery Networks (CDN) to serve these needs, however, the CDN market is consolidating as service providers of every size struggle to monetize traditional infrastructure that once was modern.
Varnish Enterprise version 6.0.11r2 contains a new Varnish Module (VMOD).
S3 VMOD provides functionality for using Varnish as a caching proxy in front of S3-compatible object storage. It includes a dynamic backend director for S3 bucket endpoints.
Why is this an important VMOD? We explain below.
In this week’s episode of Two-Minute Tech Tuesday, we'll talk about getting stuck in an infinite redirect loop, an issue that occurs quite frequently in Varnish when you use caching, and HTTP to HTTPS redirection. In this blog, we'll explain how the issue occurs, and how you can resolve it.
