Varnish is a state of the art HTTP accelerator. Unlike Squid, Varnish was built from the ground up to accelerate the web experience. Varnish Software announced on their blog today that their Varnish Administration Console (VAC) now includes ban management. Ban expressions support the most commonly used fields, to include req.http.url, req.http.host and obj.http.Content-Type.

VAC Ban Management

“The Ban Management also provides a “quick bans” mechanism for a hassle-free way of executing a ban. Furthermore, it can also be used for those that uses various other VCL fields in addition to the fields already mentioned. Bans are saved and can be reloaded at a later stage.”

The VAC launches Autumn 2011 and is only available to paying customers.
