Varnish is an HTTP accelerator also known as a caching HTTP reverse proxy. You can install it in front of hybris and configure it to cache the contents. Varnish Cache is a very fast thing. It typically speeds up delivery with a factor of 300 – 1000x, depending on your architecture. However, your backend system should be compatible with Varnish to use all its features and speed. Default hybris isn’t. Last weekend I managed to integrate Varnish with hybris. This article demonstrates the approach and tells you about the way to it.

Caching is inevitable for a high-performance, scalable web application. There are different types of caching that have already been implemented in hybris. However, almost every solution require additional tools and improvements to make hybris more resilient to high traffic or page load time related requirements. Today’s article is about custom caching engine based on MongoDB (easily ported to any other NoSQL database).
