Origin Offload

Stability at Scale

Many of the world’s largest streaming services use Varnish Enterprise behind multiple CDNs to maximize cache hits, protect origin servers and increase cache efficiency.

Varnish acts as a single entry point for every public CDN in use, offloading traffic and synchronizing PoPs.

If a CDN goes down, Varnish shields the origin from traffic, continues delivering video and offers automatic failover for uninterrupted viewing.
