ShowHN: ScaleSimple - An Open Source CDN platform (dberg.org)
34 points by dberg on Jan 15, 2014 | hide | past | favorite | 8 comments

This marketplace idea is really cool. I'd imagine that since this doesn't really touch the application at all, once the cost of trying something basically drops to zero this would create lots of freedom to experiment with potentially impactful things that one wouldn't otherwise mess with.

Yea, there are tons of ideas around this. Things like rate limiting, templates for all kinds of CMS, plenty of VMOD ideas, etc. Hopefully we get there :)

(Now I see why you liked vagent2 so much. Nice work!)

I have to agree on this point.

The Varnish Ecosystem is quite large and the software has been used for many years to solve lots of different problems in many different environments, with many frameworks and stacks.

The closest to a multiple solution VCL library is this: * https://github.com/mattiasgeniar/varnish-3.0-configuration-t...

There is already a lot to play with. This and other solutions and Varnish Cache extensions are listed on the VMODs and Utilities directories: * http://varnish.org/vmods * http://varnish.org/utilities

Make sure to add SimpleScale to the list (an publish screenshots if you have any). If it gains traction, it can be a valuable tool for many users.

Ha thanks Ruben. I just published it to the utilities page, cheers.

I think you have something here - the gap certainly exists - I am certainly going to look at implementing... the big CDNs are a nightmare to deal with

am looking forward to trying it out... we have a custom internal CDN implemented alreayd - which requires alot of work to add new applications... will keep u posted...

great idea! Can't wait to have a look at the code, thanks

no prob! Things are still a little rough, but hopefully being open will accelerate the state of the platform. Any feedback is welcome.
