As more companies look to move their infrastructure to the cloud, Varnish too has gone virtual. Improving web performance and securing scalability and availability grow more important by the minute, but maintaining on-premise infrastructure isn’t always practical for every business. Serving up a virtual infrastructure that puts control in the hands of the user, Varnish Plus Cloud - now available on Google Cloud Platform as well as AWS and Azure - lets you flexibly manage how much memory, storage and CPU you use and scale the infrastructure up or down as needed.
As Varnish Plus Cloud has expanded its availability to more cloud platforms (today it’s available on AWS/Amazon Web Services, Google Cloud Platform and Microsoft Azure), we thought it would be worth looking at the difference between elasticity and scalability.
Cloud options make for more convenient and affordable solutions, particularly for small-to-medium businesses that cannot or do not want to invest in and maintain the hardware needed.
