Varnish on the AWS Cloud
This Quick Start deploys Varnish Enterprise (VE) on the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Cloud in about 30 minutes.
VE is the commercial enterprise version of the open-source HTTP engine and reverse HTTP proxy, Varnish Cache (VC). Both versions of Varnish speed up a website by caching (storing) a copy of a page served by your web server the first time a user visits your page. The next time the user requests the same page, the cache will serve the copy quickly, instead of requesting the page from the web server again. VE provides usability improvements and performance enhancements over VC.
This Quick Start deploys VE into a Multi-AZ configuration on AWS with asynchronous caching data replication between Availability Zones. The Quick Start uses Ubuntu Linux as the operating system for the VE instances.
The Quick Start offers two deployment options:
- Deploying VE into a new virtual private cloud (VPC) on AWS
- Deploying VE into an existing VPC on AWS
You can also use the AWS CloudFormation templates as a starting point for your own implementation.
For architectural details, best practices, step-by-step instructions, and customization options, see the deployment guide.
