Hello, I'm working on a e-commerce site, and the content of it is almost fully dynamic.

Most user must login to purchase, and every login user in have a collection of personalized items displayed in every page. And every item's status is in real-time(whether it's in stock, and how many left).

So for now, we dynamically generate every webpage, and use a CDN to delivery all static files(images, css, js).

Then, can varnish be used in such situation where almost all things is dynamic? As I see Facebook is also using varnish, and I'm wondering how fb did it.
