As of March 9th, 2015, the licensing model has changed for Adobe Connect. Read this summary of the licensing terms that have been added, revised, and removed. If you are a current Adobe Connect customer, you will be given a grace period to change any existing licensing over to the new licensing terms. New customers will need to adhere to the licensing terms on purchase.
The idea of being able to upload recordings to Connect can be an attractive thing under the right circumstances. The two most common use cases are when a recording needs to be repaired because of an audio issue (this is probably going to be done by Adobe or a savvy support person with your reseller) and wanting multiple versions of the same recording.

Released today (Nov 18, 2014) are three new products to add to the Varnish Plus application; Unlimited cache sizing, increased caching performance and customized cache optimization support content-heavy, high-traffic sites.
“For most consumers, websites are now the pivotal point of interaction with companies. If information and content isn’t delivered instantly, they will seek alternatives that are just a mouse-click away,” – Per Buer, Founder and CTO, Varnish Software.
Unlimited cache sizing with Varnish Massive Storage Engine
The new Varnish Massive Storage Engine tackles the problems of content-heavy sites by allowing the Varnish caching layer to handle multi-terabyte data sets. This makes it possible to cache almost unlimited objects while the website performance remains stable over time. The Varnish Massive Storage Engine is targeted at business with large data sets such as online retailers, image banks, video distributors or Content Distribution Networks and enables them to deliver high quality content within their current infrastructure while pushing the bounds of modern web experience delivery.
Increased caching performance and resilience with Varnish High Availability
Varnish High Availability is a high performance content replicator that eliminates cache misses (when an item looked up in the cache is not found) and ensures the stability of the Varnish Cache set-up. By protecting the backend infrastructure from overload caused by cache misses, it increases website performance and minimizes the risk of frustrated visitors leaving websites. Varnish High Availability is for Varnish Cache users whose sites are business-critical. It can be installed with any multi-cache Varnish Cache setup, including two/three node CDN POP installations.
Customized cache optimization with Varnish Tuner
Varnish Tuner automates customized cache optimization in both the Varnish and operating system environments. It recommends configuration options for the Varnish Cache set-up including how the operating system should be tuned, which cache parameters should be changed or replaced and also explains these recommendations. Varnish Tuner makes it possible for businesses to find the specific set-ups that best matches their resources and needs, resulting in better website performance.
Varnish Massive Storage Engine, Varnish High Availability and Varnish Tuner are all available from today with a Varnish Plus subscription
