Build your own CDN with Varnish

English session - Intermediate

In this session we'll be leveraging Varnish, the popular HTTP caching software, to build our own CDN. The goal is to build a multi-tier CDN with multiple Points of Presence. The various tiers take care of origin shielding, storage, request routing and decision-making on the edge.

The Varnish Configuration Language, Varnish's built-in programming language, will play a big part and will allow you to tailor the behavior of the CDN to your needs.
