With our 1-click server deployments, each server comes with various default packages and extensions in order to provide the perfect balance between performance and stability for your web applications.

This knowledge base article provides a list of the most common packages present in a default installation for  Debian 8(servers created after February 9th of 2016) but not with Debian 7.

The deployed Varnish version is 4.0.x. It is an open source HTTP accelerator that is used to cache both static and dynamic contents. It works between Nginx and Apache.
