New CDN Solutions and Industry Initiatives Help Reduce the Carbon Footprint and Energy Costs of Streaming, Caching and Content Delivery

Los Angeles, CA – August 17, 2022 – Varnish Software, a leader in caching, streaming and content delivery software solutions, will unveil its road map addressing one of the most important challenges facing video and Communications Service Providers (CSPs) – streaming sustainability – at IBC2022. This includes presenting its new solutions, product demonstrations and long-term initiatives to help reduce the carbon footprint and energy costs of streaming, caching, and content delivery.

“The annual doubling of connectivity by businesses and consumers has created an urgent need for more energy efficient solutions that still deliver a flawless user experience. Varnish is committed to making streaming more sustainable,” said Ian Vaughan, Senior Manager of Product Marketing. “Our company-wide #WeCanDoBetter initiative offers solutions designed to deliver as much content and the greatest throughput possible for every watt of energy consumed by hardware processes across the Varnish ecosystem.”

For example, Varnish Software recently partnered with Intel Network Builders to develop the next generation of power efficient Content Delivery Network (CDN) systems. This collaboration helped spawn the latest NUMA-aware version of Varnish Enterprise 6, which processes memory access locally for more efficient I/O performance and enables CSPs utilizing Varnish Software to deliver video at over 500Gbps without using expensive and power-hungry accelerators.

Varnish is also partnering with academia on a new project to measure power consumption and CO2 emissions of HTTP servers on which Varnish is deployed.

Varnish Software is a founding member of the Greening of Streaming (GoS) alliance that brings global industry players in government, media and technology together to address the impact of streaming on the environment. The initiative is dedicated to improving power efficiency and long-term sustainability among streaming infrastructure and technology providers.
