Caching, streaming and content delivery software specialist Varnish Software unveiled Massive Storage Engine (MSE) 4, its latest solution for storing and managing cached objects and their metadata, and the latest addition to Varnish Enterprise 6.

According to Varnish, MSE 4 further improves availability, reduces latency and ensures customers can always deliver the optimal digital experiences, under high loads or even when certain drives fail. It is designed for video distribution and large-cache use cases, as it adds persistence and resilience to content delivery internally, externally, and at the edge.

These new features and capabilities complement recent enhancements to Varnish’s growing portfolio of content delivery software solutions.

Adrian Herrera, CMO at Varnish Software, said: “Content delivery use cases are rapidly evolving, and we are seeing that live streaming and VOD are the highest growth segments. The challenge for content providers, telcos and even traditional CDNs is how to support this growth and deliver the best digital experience in an economical way. A large part of this is having the ability to store, access and deliver content as efficiently and reliably as possible, even in the face of hardware failures and traffic spikes, which is what MSE 4 enables.”

MSE 4 integrates with Varnish Enterprise 6, Varnish Software’s web cache and HTTP accelerator, and further expands on its capabilities and benefits, including the newly upgraded Varnish Controller 5.1.
