Varnish Plus Wins StackWorld 2016 ScaleUp Award

Leading Web Application Performance Platform Recognized for Delivering Incredible Scale in CacheFly Deployment

OSLO, NORWAY and NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Jun 6, 2016) - Varnish Software, a leader in high-performance content delivery, today announced that Varnish Plus has been recognized with a StackWorld 2016 ScaleUp Award. The ScaleUp Awards recognize technologies that have enabled customers to achieve incredible scale, and Varnish Plus was chosen for the real customer impact it had supporting CacheFly scalability at high performance levels.

Rapid growth at CacheFly, the fastest throughput content delivery network (CDN), led to the selection and deployment of Varnish Plus as a caching solution to support scalability at its extreme performance level, and to future-proof its caching & CDN. CacheFly gained operational efficiencies with Varnish Plus, along with the stability required for deploying in-demand new features. This ensures CacheFly's 100 percent service level commitment to customers, many of whom have massive caches in excess of 100TB.

Varnish Plus, built on top of open source Varnish Cache, gives advanced users access to a unique set of modules and expert support that enable secure, high-powered and scalable internet operations. Varnish Plus is aimed at organizations that want to run big Varnish installations in an enterprise setting with high requirements for scalability, reporting, manageability and support.

"This is a great recognition of how Varnish Plus helps our customers be prepared for delivering their digital content at any scale," said Per Buer, founder and CTO of Varnish Software. "The ScaleUp Award is an honor we're proud to share with CacheFly, for showing the market how to benefit from building your own content delivery network. CacheFly uses Varnish Plus to push the limits of what caching can do for a CDN at massive scale without interruptions."

The ScaleUp Awards will be presented at the StackWorld 2016 Conference & Expo, June 27-28 in San Francisco.
