Content delivery networks (CDNs) can be much more than just the workhorse of content delivery. Sure, that’s what they are designed for, but you can get much more from them if you’re able to extend their functionality -- everything from being able to create separate ‘tenants’ in your own CDN setup (for internal use or to sell CDN services on to external customers) to building in web application firewalls, cache replication, and load balancing functions, and much more.
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.
