Accelerated Web Content Delivery

Accelerated Web Content Delivery

Abstract

Today while designing a  Web application or a website that is expected to generate a lot of interest, one has to ensure that the Web application has the right design and infrastructure to handle the extra load, failing which websites are likely to experience difficulties. For instance, the highly popular micro-blogging website twitter.com faced stability issues for a long time after its launch, since it was not designed to handle a large amount of traffic. The performance of a Web application  is determined by  multiple  factors  such as design and application architecture, quality of code and hardware infrastructure. Performance needs to be built at every layer of the technology stack to get a solid finished product. This paper focuses on the Web content caching aspect of website performance.

Excerpts from the Paper
Web caching is not a new idea. It has been in use for quite some time and current browsers, caching proxies, and Web servers provide support for it. However Web caching is most often an ignored aspect while designing a technology stack of a Web application. 

This paper will focus on caching solutions from a content provider’s point of view and the various ways in which  content  caching can enhance a website’s performance. The paper assumes that the reader is familiar with Web standards like HTTP, HTML and  is technical in nature. It is targeted towards technology architects and solution designers.
