E-commerce platforms, in preparation for the strain that will hit their sites in the lead-up to holiday shopping and promotions, work hard to ensure uptime and performance. Does this focus take away from their preparedness for the cracks in security that almost inevitably arise during these peak traffic periods?
All this year, Varnish Software has been celebrating the ten-year anniversary of Varnish Cache. One of the best traits of Varnish Cache is its flexibility - and throughout its decade of existence, we have been consistently surprised by the creative ways our users have deployed Varnish. To capture and share with the entire community some of these use cases, we launched the Varnish Awards. We invited Varnish users to submit their stories in two categories, innovation and value, and then empaneled a group of judges to choose the best of the best. The value category award winner will be announced shortly - stay tuned. The winners in each category will share their stories on September 22 at the Varnish Summit in Los Angeles.
