Squid Cache – Optimize Web Delivery
Squid is a caching proxy for the Web supporting HTTP, HTTPS, FTP, and more. It reduces bandwidth and improves response times by caching and reusing frequently-requested web pages. Squid has extensive access controls and makes a great server accelerator. It runs on Unix and Windows and is licensed under the GNU GPL.
Making the most of your Internet Connection
Squid is used by hundreds of Internet Providers world-wide to provide their users with the best possible web access. Squid optimizes the data flow between client and server to improve performance and caches frequently-used content to save bandwidth. Squid can also route content requests to servers in a wide variety of ways to build cache server hierarchies which optimize network throughput.
Website Content Acceleration and Distribution
Thousands of web-sites around the Internet use Squid to drastically increase their content delivery. Squid can reduce your server load and improves delivery speeds to clients. Squid can also be used to deliver content from around the world – copying only the content being used, rather than inefficiently copying everything. Finally, Squid’s advanced content routing configuration allows you to build content clusters to route and load balance requests via a variety of web servers.
