Good Afternoon

  • A little background.

    • The nature of caching

  • How cache becomes cash.

    • Businesses that use the power of web cache

  • Predicting the future.

    • Observations and suppositions based on demand and industry trends

A little background.The Nature of Web Caching

Understanding the concept

  • Definition: a high-speed storage mechanism that returns frequently needed information

  • Example: a Library

Understanding the concept

  • What uses cache?

    • Computers

    • Peripherals

    • Networks

    • Web servers

Floppy disk drive



L1 and L2 Cache


Internet Explorer




Windows Media Player

Specific Cache Applications

Simple/device caching

the latency time

cache hit

cache miss

Fixed level cache

the latency time(s)

cache query

cache hit

cache miss

Evolutionary steps

Clustered/multi-level cache

  • Node latency

  • Update heuristics

  • Fragments /ESI

    Intelligent Variable Dynamic Architecture

  • Dynamic landscape

  • Rapid delivery system acquisition / subscription


Web Caching Overview

Web Caching with Clusters

Quiz time!

Question – name some applications of caching

Question – T/F – The web caching system is built into/part of the Application Server

Question – what is the practical value of web caching?

The Nature of Caching

  • Do you have any Questions?

How cache becomes cash.Businesses that use the power of web cache

Technical features of caching systems

Efficient Use of Low-Cost Hardware

  • Automatically compresses Web pages for faster delivery to browsers and reduced bandwidth expenditures

  • Caches static Web content, including:

    • Text (HTML, XML, CSS, etc.), Images (GIF, JPEG, etc.), Audio, Video, Java Applets

  • Caches dynamic Web content, including:

    • JSPs, Servlets, ASPs, CGI, Python, PHP, ColdFusion, etc.

    • Pages with cookies, personalized attributes, session-encoded URLs, requests with URL and POST body parameters

Technical features of caching systems

  • Provides partial-page caching and page assembly for personalized applications – based on open Edge Side Includes (ESI) and Edge Side Includes for Java (JESI) standard markup languages

  • Provides order-of-magnitude performance improvement for Web-based applications

  • Ideal for accelerating catalogs, auctions, exchanges, enterprise portals, packaged or home-grown CRM and ERP applications, business intelligence tools, Web services and syndicated content, wireless-enabled applications, and Internet-facing Web sites

Technical features of caching systems

Cache Control

  • Administrator-defined caching policies allow advanced caching and routing decisions based on HTTP header information, including cookies and session-encoded URLs

  • developers can set caching policies within application logic, making the content self-describing and reducing the number of configuration steps required to deploy the cache

  • HTTP-based invalidation message model allows expiration and validation policies provide ways forensuring content freshness

Technical features of caching systems

Flexible Deployments

  • deployment on the same node (or nodes) as the application Web server(s), or on dedicated hardware.

  • heterogeneous environments – works seamlessly with third-party HTTP servers, application servers, databases, content management systems, and content delivery network services

  • deployment behind a third-party network load balancing devicedistributed, hierarchical deployments – often called Enterprise Content Delivery Network (eCDN) deployments – enabling enterprises to distribute cached content to the edge of the network (branch offices, remote sites) and nearer to end users

Nuts and bolts of Web Caching

  • “Can’t cache everything” problem

  • Solved by ESI (Edge side include) is the programming language used universally for caching systems

Edge Side Include

Edge Side Include

Business benefits of caching systems

  • Resource usage – higher throughput and scalability

  • User experience – faster response times without sacrificing personalization / customization

  • Availability – intelligent workload management

  • Productivity –faster time-to-market

  • Bottom line – reduced infrastructure load = cost savings

  • Intelligence – better visibility and end-user service levels

Quiz time!

Question – How many caching servers can be utilized at a time?

Question – What is the markup language for designating fragments of a dynamic site / portal?

Question – name a benefit of web caching

Turning Cache into Cash

  • Do you have any Questions?

  • What about the future?

Predicting the future.Observations and suppositions based on demand and industry trends

Future Schema

  • Flexible Architecture

Future Schema

  • Artificial Intelligence

  • Pattern Guessing

  • Server Subscription

    • Similar to DCHP

  • Evolution of ESI

  • Refinement of Heuristics

Industry Trends

  • More universal / open on heterogeneous platforms

  • Oracle 10g can work with BEA, IBM, etc. etc.

Quiz time!

Question – what are some future inventions you foresee with web caching?

Question – what is a dynamicsite you use frequently thatcould be accelerated?
