ESI is more complex way, because you have to install varnish as reverse proxy, config VCL.

You don't need the varnish module…but if you're running a high-traffic site, the varnish module can help by sending 'clear cache' instructions to varnish when content changes. The expire module can also help, by improving the granularity of the 'clear cache' instructions, for example, so that it clears the cache of just a specific node page.
