Developer Webinar: Optimized Caching for Akamai and Varnish

June 14, 2017 · by Sonia Advani ·

We're excited to introduce our first webinar about the Akamai Connector for Varnish, Tuesday June 27 at 10am PDT.

To help Varnish administrators more tightly integrate their local Varnish instances with Akamai at the Edge, Akamai and Varnish Software have collaborated to deliver the Akamai Connector for Varnish. This webinar introduces developers and Akamai admins to the Akamai Connector for Varnish.

Many organizations use Varnish at origin and Akamai at the Edge for scale, availability, and offload. This dual-layer of caching delivers a best-of-both-worlds approach for customers employing both solutions.

However, this approach has its challenges. Varnish users who want to improve their performance in conjunction with Akamai can endure operational inefficiencies due to the disparate caching layers involved. Changes are not always in sync, and best practices can be missed.

During the webinar, Colin Bendell and Davey Shafik from Akamai, along with Dag Haavi Finstad from Varnish Software, will provide you information and helpful insights to overcome the above challenges.
