In this episode we’ll be talking about Varnish High Availability.
A new version of Varnish Enterprise, release 6.0.8r2, is available now! It adds new Varnish modules (VMODs), features, optimizations, fixes, and more. For the full changelog and release notes, visit the documentation here.
This release is a big one, and focuses on extending Varnish Enterprise with additional building blocks that make it easier to build complex edge logic on top of the Varnish platform. But there are some other useful new features thrown in there too.
Object storage systems allow vast quantities of unstructured data to be stored and accessed via APIs or HTTP/HTTPS, whether it is media content, website data or financial data sets. When this mission-critical data is kept in object storage, availability and performance are crucial, no matter the levels of simultaneous demand. That’s why Varnish Enterprise is the perfect partner for object storage systems, and why we have partnered with NetApp to deliver high performance, scalable and resilient object storage, as part of their leading software-defined solution, StorageGRID. Adding the powerful Varnish caching layer to StorageGRID guarantees uptime and performance, even in times of huge demand for high-use assets.
