Hey everyone,

Can you tell me which caching is better between Varnish and Redis, I want to use one for my Wordpress website to speed up loading for web pages.

Any advice?

Both do the same thing, personally use redis everywhere.

We use Redis everywhere, mainly because we have a lot of LiteSpeed servers and Redis integrates with LSCache nicely.

Varnish and Memcached also both work really well though, personal preference and if you are using anything that has a native integration I guess.

I am using redis caching for my wordpress website, it runs pretty good, i see that Redis is easy to install and configure than Varnish cache.

Varnish is a reverse proxy that works in front of a web server (apache, nginx, etc.) and it's a server that can cache the response for subsequent requests without sending the request to the backend (the web server), so it's a bit like HTML caching.
As a data storage server, Redis specializes in key-value based storage. You could say that it is a big 'dictionary', where you set values using a key and retrieve them using that key. Both systems have some differences, just Google varnish vs redis to see them.
