The DigitalOcean ecosystem

DigitalOcean simplifies modern app creation and makes it easy to spin up applications on cloud infrastructure, with a “no DevOps required” experience. Varnish and DigitalOcean are an excellent pairing, making it easier and faster than ever to deploy Varnish’s powerful caching, web acceleration and origin protection technology in front of your website, API, application or media server.


Varnish Cache in the cloud

Varnish Cache is, of course, a web cache and reverse proxy used by millions of websites to speed up content delivery. Offloading content delivery using Varnish Cache's reverse HTTP proxy technology also means you can reduce backend server load by up to 99% and speed up content delivery many times over. Using Varnish Cache in the cloud is great for organizations and developers looking to accelerate content delivery and protect their servers from high traffic, without investing in hardware infrastructure or managing deployments. It makes it simple and cost effective to benefit from:

  • High-performance, scalable internet operations. Varnish technology channels the power of caching to deliver performance, scalability and reliability for fast and flexible web and API content delivery. 
  • Last minute resilience and stability. Deploy Varnish Cache within minutes and handle last minute traffic spikes and dynamic demand with ease.

  • Versatility. Manage your APIs and multiple Varnish instances easily, offload your backend, build your own CDN, set up POPs in strategic locations or use Varnish as an origin shield.

Varnish Cache and Varnish Enterprise are also available across Azure, Amazon Web Services, Google Cloud and Oracle Cloud marketplaces.
