We are excited to be named a Gartner "Cool Vendor" in Web-Scale Platforms, 2015. It is a true honor to be recognized by Gartner as one of the vendors out there that help drive innovation and performance in web-scaling.
Gartner's annual research reports identify "Cool Vendors" in key areas of technology, evaluating these innovative vendors' products and services. In the "Cool Vendors in Web-Scale Platforms, 2015" report Gartner stated, “Organizations investing in digital business can be blind-sided by unexpected success. You may need to scramble to deal with new feature demands and scalability requirements. A number of vendors are working on technology to address what's known as the ‘C10K problem’ — i.e., how do you handle 10,000 concurrent connections? This year's Cool Vendors are applying innovative techniques, such as caching, event-driven programming, micro service architectures (MSAs) and container management frameworks, to solve this problem."
The fact that Varnish Software was included in this year's report recognizes our continued efforts to deliver performance and scalability by offering solutions that will truly help web based businesses handle the challenges of the future. Our solutions currently power more than 2.3 million websites.
We would like to use this opportunity to thank these web businesses for relying on our expertise and tools as well as Gartner for recognizing the role Varnish plays in delivering solutions that make websites and API Management ever faster, more scalable and reliable.
