Squid vs Varnish

Squid vs Varnish

Sunday 20 December 2009 1:28:20 am - 2 replies

I would like to use a http accelerator with my eZP site. I have narrowed down my choice to two candidates: Squid and Varnish.

Which one is better for eZP and gives greater performance boost?

Anyone has experience with both?

Common wisdom is:

- varnish is faster / uses less resources

- it also has support for ESI

- squid otoh can share cache between two live instances, for better scalability (and possibly fault tolerance)

Hi Marko,

choose the one, you or your administrator knows better, Squid works very nice with eZ Publish, Varnish, too.

For Varnish there are nice extensions:

Varnish Control Center
