Section.io is a “delivery platform created by developers for developers”. The Australian company was founded in 2015 by Stewart McGrath and Daniel Bartholomew, and developed by the team behind Squixa - a web performance acceleration company with multi-CDN. Squixa has since been renamed and made part of section.io.
The team behind section.io aims to give developers of ops and apps teams control over their solution, and make it easy to use. From their own experience they found CDNs to be clunky, and packed with features that do not necessarily fit the needs of developers. They apply the agile DevOps principles to content delivery. Section.io automates the setup process for a Varnish installation and gives clients access and control over the configuration. Their platform platform lets clients run their own Varnish Configuration Language (VCL), both in development and in production.
Included features are logs, alerting, usage statistics and SSL. In addition, section.io supports HTTP/2.
