Varnish Controller 6.0 is here! This represents a milestone for Varnish Software and the evolution of Controller, our UI-based Varnish management and configuration platform. From the initial release of Controller, it has been dedicated to streamlining Varnish tasks, automating actions, and enabling easier management of even the most complex caching setups.
In our recent webinar with STL, From CDN to Edge Content Delivery: Quantifying the Big Opportunity, we received a lot of great questions from our audience about the nature of the telco edge, and what edge computing actually means. The edge is still a frontier space for many companies and raises a lot of question marks. Here we’ll try to dispel some of that mystery by answering some of the most common questions we get about edge computing and Varnish’s role as Edge Content Delivery Software.
Varnish Controller is our orchestration tool, built to manage Varnish Enterprise architectures of any size. Packed with provisioning, monitoring, and scaling capabilities, Varnish Controller operates on both Varnish clusters and multi-tenant environments. We’re continuing to improve this tool’s performance, flexibility, and ease of use with the latest update, Controller 5.1. Along with a comprehensive series of bug fixes and UI improvement, this update includes several brand new additions to Controller, including a host of new customization options for Traffic Router, the addition of debug headers for RoutingRules, and better graphs on the Controller dashboard.
Calling 2022 a “big year” for Varnish Software would be an understatement.
Over the last 12 months, we’ve experienced new levels of growth, achieved our greatest customer satisfaction scores to date, and unveiled pivotal new technologies and initiatives that strengthen our position as a leader in caching, streaming and content delivery solutions worldwide.
As we wind up this momentous year, we wanted to share a few big end-of-year highlights and brief teasers of what’s to come.
