Please consider support for Varnish Cache Plus for HTTPS connections:

Hi @craigcarnell VarnishPlus pricing starts at $31k US for a 3 node cluster is this something that merchants would be willing to pay over using Nginx for SSL termination -> Varnish -> Nginx FPM or Apache type of system architecture? What about Hitch instead?

^^^ No thanks lolll
NGINX on HTTP2 with the full TLS1.2 and HSTS implemetation + running REDIS 3.5 on unix socket.
= makes varnish almost as popular as the built-in firefox's cache
< 0.75sec page load. Read; nearly instant
(Magento 2.1rc2 pffffff!!!)

@Commcad do you have a link to more information?
@choukalos definitively no!

@Commcad very cool; I'm carrying an epic to modularize/make it easy to change out caching engine (MAGETWO-40094)
Thanks for the feedback. Have either of you checked out Hitch - wondering your thoughts there?

@choukalos Configured nginx with http2/tls 1.2 + HSTS with Redis 3.2.1 for cache and session
Varnish is running for HTTP requests.
The basket take 12 seconds to load, with a single SKU in the basket. Not exactly earth shattering 2 second load time!
This is on a 2GB Intel + SSD cloud instance on Rackspace.
On my home page, non-HTTPS I am seeing the html return in 26ms using Varnish.
This is on Magento 2.0
