Description

What is Varnish?

Varnish Cache is a web application accelerator also known as a caching HTTP reverse proxy. You install it in front of any server that speaks HTTP and configure it to cache the contents. Varnish Cache is really, really fast. It typically speeds up delivery with a factor of 300 - 1000x, depending on your architecture.

What is section.io?

section.io is the only application integrated content delivery solution helping website engineers build and run fast, reliable web applications. Website developers can now run their reverse proxy service locally for configuration and testing purposes and then easily promote their configuration through the GIT repository into staging and production.

What is Squid?

Squid reduces bandwidth and improves response times by caching and reusing frequently-requested web pages. Squid has extensive access controls and makes a great server accelerator. It runs on most available operating systems, including Windows and is licensed under the GNU GPL.
