Varnish Cache - Strongly recommended by Magento

Much faster than built-in full-page caching (file system or database)
Varnish is designed to accelerate HTTP traffic

Spin up a Global Varnish Cache tier for your Magento 2 site in 5 minutes

  • Magento 2 is enabled for Varnish Cache Acceleration
  • Magento 2's preferred acceleration tool is Varnish Cache
  • section.io can easily work with Magento 2 because we have Varnish baked into our platform
  • section.io Varnish Cache tier works with industry standard tools to show you how Varnish is performing
  • With section.io you can test Varnish Cache for Magento 2 in the safety of your dev environment
Note....a common misconception is that Magento 2 comes with Varnish.

Magento 2 Enjoys Some Varnish Cache Love

Magento 2 is an excellent ecommerce platform providing flexibility and control for developers and users of ecommerce websites.

Magento can be resource hungry and perform poorly particularly as visitors to the site increase. Plug Ins are often developed with functionality in mind rather than performance.

Implementation of an advanced caching solution such as section.io can not only speed up the delivery of every HTML page but also lift significant computational load from your magento servers

Options include:

  • Device detection logic - change application behaviour based on user devices detected
  • Rewrite URLs and change HTTP headers - make "off domain" objects cacheable
  • Set caching based on server side logic - strip unnecessary cookies, override the cache times
  • Modify Cache Control Headers - set a max age cache time at client side which is different to intermediary caches
  • Set Specific HTML Pages to Cache or Not Cache
  • Set result code dependent redirections
  • Use Edge Side Includes
  • and Many More...

Setting up Advanced Caching

Use Varnish Control Language (or VCL) to configure the cache settings. When you make changes to the VCL and deploy section.io, your changes will instantly be distributed to all of section.io's globally distributed nodes.

With advanced caching options, you can set up section.io to provide a unique caching platform for your web application and test it in your local development and test environments before pushing to production.
