Varnish Edge Cloud
Last Updated: June 02, 2021
Varnish Edge Cloud is a 5G-ready CDN software solution that helps CSPs harness the power of the multi-access edge and deliver high quality HTTP video experiences to vast audiences. It is a highly scalable edge platform, optimized for the most demanding live streaming and VOD workloads across vRAN, NFVi and CDN environments, on COTs hardware, VMs and containers. Edge Cloud means network operators can dynamically allocate edge compute, storage and bandwidth resources to a CDN and other functions, in deeply placed edge data centers. By optimizing resource utilization, reducing backhaul and offering massive concurrency, Edge Cloud also lowers TCO even while delivering high QoE at massive scale. With ultra-low latency and world-beating network capacity, Edge Cloud brings about the future of content distribution, with the performance, scale and security required to realize emerging use cases across streaming, immersion and industrial automation.
