proxy cache

A facility in a proxy server that caches incoming Web pages on the hard disk. If the next page requested by a browser is already in the proxy cache, the page is retrieved locally instead of from the Internet. When proxy servers are used, the users' browsers must be configured to use the proxy server. See proxy server, reverse proxy, transparent cache and Web cache.
