Varnish Software Names Kanban Solutions First Certified Varnish Plus Open Partner in North America

Software Engineering and Application Development Services Company Teams With Varnish to Optimize Client's Rich Media Capabilities for the Web

OSLO, NORWAY and LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM and NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Jun 22, 2015) - Varnish Software, the company behind Varnish Cache, the world's most widely used HTTP accelerator based on open source, today announced that Kanban Solutions, a provider of software engineering and application development services to global brands, has become its first certified Varnish Plus Open Partner in North America. Varnish Software and Kanban have already collaborated with clients such as Nikon to optimize rich media capabilities on the web with the performance, scalability, and reliability of Varnish Plus.

Kanban combines deep technical capabilities in content management, e-commerce and web experience delivery. Their seamless marketing technology integrations have shown proven results and business impact for leading national and international brands. By leveraging Varnish Plus premium features and Kanban's integrations with content management and e-commerce platforms, organizations can increase page response time, organic site traffic and reduce hardware usage, while providing tight controls over online customer experience.

Kanban turned to Varnish Plus to help drive its content and commerce optimizations. After initial implementations of the open source version of Varnish Cache significantly improved page speeds, Kanban identified market opportunities for simplified administrative and fine-grain control of cache invalidation/surrogate keys. Rather than set Time-To-Live parameters driving all page expirations, TTLs could be triggered by publishing CMS content or e-commerce pricing and promotional changes. After exploring their options, Kanban chose Varnish Plus, to better control their Varnish Cache installations.

"As Varnish Software's first certified Varnish Plus Open partner in North America, Kanban Solutions has both the technical and domain expertise necessary to help organizations optimize their ecommerce and content management systems with Varnish Plus," said Philip Wisniewski, EVP Kanban Solutions. "We're looking forward to deploying Varnish Plus to both our existing portfolio clients and in new situations where high performance computing helps drive content-rich and dynamic digital experiences."

"From web publishing to e-commerce to the Internet of Things, high performance computing is driving demand for Varnish Plus," said Per Buer, founder and chief technology officer, Varnish Software. "Teaming up with Kanban Solutions gives Varnish Software a software engineering and development partner who will help speed up time-to-market for Varnish Plus implementations in the red-hot North American market."
